I'm using Airport 2.60 and FS2k Pro to make some scenery. In airport, I have
selected to make they scenery I am making to exclude everything in it's box,
and to flatten it to the specific altitiude (I checked before loading the new
scenery) -0.3 like the help file suggests. I made the scenery altitiude in the
general tab equal to the hight I checked. The thing is that my scenery doesn't
flatten, going down the paved runway is really bumpy, and in some parts, I fallthrough the runway about two feet. The runway is sitting about 2 feet above thespecified alt. Any ideas on how to fix this and to make my runway flat? thanks.
Use the Cessna to check the altitude of the default scenery without a local
addon loaded at that place. Then subtract 3 feet from it. That will do.
To fix the bumpy runway, use the macro below.
With this macro, you won´t need a flatten switch any more because the
macro will set a square flatten polygon and will place an unvisible
runway which fixes the bouncing problem.

;this macro smoothes the terrain surface and prevents aircraft bouncing.
;it also flattens the terrain.
;around original MS-airfields, use the original terrain altitude with this
;Macrodesc Terrain surface smoothing macro. Set elevation with %6!! Scalable.

;now we add a new FS2K type runway with surface type -1 to make it unvisible.
;This runway will not be visible in FS, but generates smooth terrain!!!
