How to change FSX terrain?

Recommended Posts

There is an airport in FSX which has unrealistic cliffs covering it on all three sides. The airport is basically carved into a mountain, when in real life it is much different. I'd like to lower the terrain surrounding the airport so it doesn't look so cheesy.

 

Does anyone know of an easy way that I can raise and lower terrain in FSX for just a small area?

ADE (Airport Design Editor) can  flatten terrain, but at some point, you are still going to have to go back to the FSX terrain that is beyond that area...

 

Try it, and see if it makes it look better.

In general the method is to use sloped flattens to make the transition.  It can be very dependent on mesh resolution slider setting so experiment with that during testing.
