I believe it is not really a patch, just a description on how to rename some .bgl's to get the mesh right. I think I have this description saved in a file somewhere on my computer. I'll take a look when I come back from work.

If you are speaking about the terrain elevation issues around the Seattle airport when you have Portland installed, the only way I have found to "fix" that was to disable a few files in the FlightZone02_LC\scenery folder.The files in question are:915150meshl06.bgl915150meshl07.bgl915150meshl08.bgl915150meshl08.bgl915150meshl10.bglI renamed these 5 files with an OUT extension (example: 915150meshl06.bgl-OUT) and the SEATAC airport now displays properly for me.As far as I know there never was an official patch for this problem for non-UT users (i.e. default terrain).Hope that helps.

Hi "Opa"I want to give this a go but just a couple of questions. Does disabling those bgl's have any noticable effect on the Portland scenery itself and I have GE Pro not UT so will it work for that do you think?Best regardsMalcolm "Rooster" Hancock

I run FSScene and if there is any effect around the Portland area, for me it is barely noticeable.I did a flight a few days ago from Eugene (KEUG) to KPDX and thought I saw a slight difference in the terrain colors as I approached KPDX from the Southeast. It was minimal however. There was no noticeable effect for the airport property.All I can say is try it and judge for yourself.Hope that helps.
