FSX terrain covering airport

Recommended Posts

So I have just found out that the terrain at some of the airports is covering the runway, making it had to taxi and takeoff:

Need more info. Are you using terrain products ? Example, UTX, GEX, MSE, FTX Global, Vector, Mesh addons.

 

Have you checked your layering in your scenery cfg ?

I do use GEX and that's about it. How can I check layering in my scenery cfg?

In C:\Programdata\microsoft\fsx you will find your working scenery.cfg. You can also check in the scenery lib of fsx.

 

Make sure any addon airports you have that come with seperate terrain additions are below airports.

 

As an example,  T2G MMMX comes with terrain as well as the airport.

 

So in the lib it would look like this

 

MMMX-airport

MMMX -City

MMMX -Terrain

 

Looking at your screen shots, it looks like you are using an addon of some description, but you don't state what airport or addon you are using.

This is Whiteman Airport (KWHP) in Los Angeles. I don't think I'm using any particular dado for this region but I'm not too sure. Sorry if I'm not giving enough information I just found out about this problem today and I'm trying to figure out what is causing it.

well, you've got some kind of photoreal scenery on there it looks like. 

not sure if those include a mesh or not, or why the airport flatten doesn't override it there. it could just be a matter of the layering as suggested by badfinger..

here's what it looks like on my setup with no addons for that area (other than utx usa which maybe put that road there)

I have found out the problem. Apparently I did have a photorealistic scenery installed that was messing with the mesh. Deleting it from the scenery lib worked. I did like that scenery though. Anyway, thanks for all your support!
