Mesh, autogen & coastlines

Recommended Posts

Hi,I have used autoasm and landclass assistant to correct a coastline near the airport I am modelling. After doing this I made a terrain mesh for the area. The 'land' that I made with autoasm and landclass assistant is actually a 100m hill, but I'm sure the mesh is not affecting the new 'land', also the autogen scenery is floating in places and the default coasts and rivers seem to drag the mesh to sea level. Is there a way around these problems?David

Hi David.ReMeshing ReWorked CoastsThe bad news is, once an area is flattened, it can never be meshed by a TMF/DEM mesh again.But there are ways to remesh with invisible TDF 'flattens'. It is tedious work, and I'm playing with some macros to make it easier.Read the above post, and search the AVSIM forums for 'remesh'.Dick

the default flattened areas can also be overwritten by old style "SCASM" flatten areas witch can be created by the AIRPORT or SCC program, so it should not be a big problem to correct flattened areas like lakes and coastlines.

And the old style "SCASM" flatten areas can never be meshed by a TMF/DEM mesh again, either. Both methods destroy mesh... and both could be used to "remesh".But, if you use the old FS2000-style flattens, your framerates will crawl to near zero. With TDF invisible 'flattens', framerates are basically unaffected.Dick
