Installing a high resolution mesh will cause the "fix" MS used to blend airfield elevations into the surrounding terrain. One could create a series of sloped 'flattens' ( polygons ) using SBuilderX to belnd the elevations but that is atedious process. I have done that to several airports that I use regularlybut to apply that method to all airfields would take considerable time.I believe there is also a method by which one cuts 'hole' in the hi-resmesh to allow the original terrain to show through for the area aroundthe airport. Go to fsdeveloper.com and ask around in the appropriateforum over there would be my suggestion. Paul

That method of "fixing" the addon mesh is in effect for some products, but only covers about 15% of the existing airports.As 70 - 80% of the airports are at the incorrect location and/or elevation the cutting of holes to let the default mesh show through isn't a viable option, especially if an airport does get corrected.
