Hi,It's not hard to do yourself.Download and install ExcBuilder from right here:http://library.avsim.net/search.php?Search...=root&Go=SearchThere is also a tutorial there, and a tutorial update.Here is how I use it:1. Go into Slew mode (Y)2. Go into Top Down view (Ctrl-S)3. Press the Space Bar to point true north.4. Slew to the upper left of your exclude area. Click the two buttons in the upper left of ExcBuilder5. Slew to the lower right of your exclude area. Click the two buttons in the lower left of ExcBuilder.6. Select to exclude Generic Buildings and Library Objects (for example), or select All Objects to get rid of the autogen trees and buildings. 7. Click the Generate XML button.8. Click the Generate Exclude File button. I give mine names that start with x (xklax_terminal.bgl).Move the resulting .bgl file from your ExcBuilder folder to your scenery's "scenery" folder, or to the Addon Scenery/scenery folder, or any other active scenery folder.Hope this helps,--Tom GibsonCal Classic Propliner Page: http://www.calclassic.comFreeflight Design Shop: http://www.freeflightdesign.comDrop by! ___x_x_(")_x_x___

Using the exclude switch and flattening switch is reletively easy. If the above post does not sway you to do it on your own, than I would be happy to help. I can also send you the documentation I have explaining exluding and flattening.-Mike
