JJ,This recent thread covers the entire "coastline/runway/taxiway" issue: http://ftp.avsim.com/cgi-bin/dcforum/dcboa...rum=DCForumID19Download Colin's TerraShape program and use it with TerraScene to resolve your land/water/taxiway issues.For elevations, you should probably download GTOPO30 data - it is available from USGS and other sites. Converters are available from Asrux and the Avsim Fly! file library to prepare and import the elevation data into Fly!If there are other flattening issues, download the Flattenator program (advanced version) - there is some info on this in the FAQ area of the General Forum.
