Hello Francis,I believe that you have the correct procedure. There is no need for anything else as far as I know.If you create a new airport layout with AFCAD, modify the original altitude with JABBGL, and create a new flatten with Ground2K4, then everything should be fine.What exactly is the problem?Best regards.Luis

I think though if the default flatten is the wrong size or shape, it is necessary to edit the FL9xxyy0.bgl, probably removing the flattens for the default and adding your own flatten file. Using LWMViewer to locate the correct FL file and flatten areas, then use the LWMViewer disassembler to create the source file and hand edit out the LWMPoly3 calls for those areas.This creates the problem of how best to distribute the modified default files, though (same as with the JABBGL modified AP file ).scott s..
