How to expand a flatten area?

Recommended Posts

Dear FS Friends, I need a little help...Im using Richard Goldsteins excellent Spotted Bear MontanaUS Forest Service field and have installed it like this:Title=Spotted Bear USFSActive=TRUERequired=FALSELayer=185Local=scenerySpotted_Bear_USFSRequired=FALSEFlatten.0=3677,N47 59,W113 34.3,N47 59,W113 33.8,N47 56,W113 32.1,N47 56,W113 33Which is how the readme says to do it. Works fine. Only problemis that I would like to extend the flatten area longer along thelength of the run way (8U4 is the field) because theres a riverbeside the field that has a hump in it at the south end of theairfield. How can I expand this flatten area on the North/SouthAxis?Im not looking to create scenery, just modify that flatten area.Are there any wysiwyg design tools out there for this kinda thing?ThanksEric

No wysiwyg that I know of. The flatten switch is as follows: north border, west border, south border, east border. Start FS, go to the airport, and use slew mode to find the coordinates for the new boundaries you want to flatter. Transfer these coordinates to the flatten switch in the scenery.cfg.

Cool. Thanks! I'll do that. For the app developers out there...this would indeed be a cool widget. Would be a great AFCAD featureactually.Eric
