It is difficult to know the reason for your problem.Would you please indicate step-by-step everything you did to make the island, e.g.:1. drew Water Mask;2. drew Land Mask for island,etc.Thank you.Best regards.Luis

Flight Simulator is a work in progress, and sometimes there are features that do not yet work as expected.In FS 9, it seems that the Area modification functions were not yet completed, so some aspects of it are not working.Christian Fumey, the creator of Ground2K, thoroughly investigated all the possibilities of FS and included them in his program even if they did not work quite right. He mentions this repeatedly in his notes.So, please do not make an island in that way. Instead, 1. draw a Water Mask that is larger than the island you wish to create.2. draw a Land Mask over it with the correct shape of your island.3. assign Land Class to the island, remembering to extend the coverage beyond the coasts of the island, but within the limits of the new Water Mask.Please let us know if that works.Best regards.Luis
