    This is more than likely a mesh issue, or this airport has been "upgraded" and its elevation is not correct?

    So two questions:

    1) Do you have third-party mesh installed?

    2) Is this airport upgraded from the stock FSX airport?

    Beyond these two points I really don't know what else is going on except to say maybe some kind of third-party scenery add-on. Did you do anything to the Sim just prior to seeing the swamp at this airport? It may in fact help to retrace your steps.

    Mesh changes elevation. It does not turn land into water.

    For starters, what airport is this?
    And is it an addon airport? (Which addon did you download for that?)

    Is it an airport you edited yourself?

    I've had mesh sink parts of Honolulu in FS2004. Mesh can raise or lower the airport elevation so I'm assuming if it's lowered too much water will appear.

    Perhaps I'm still thinking of Sim City 4. LOL

    Thank you all It was Honolulu - just the version that comes with FSX I did nothing with it.
    Thanks for the advice.

    actually I just checked my notes and I did change mesh to 5..... should I change it back and if so to what.

    PHNL is an airport on the coast.
    Some of it's runways are right next to water. That's perfectly normal.

    Here's a link that gives you a view of the airport from above in the satellite view of google maps.
    (I hope this type of link works. In case it does not work: I googled PHNL then clicked Maps view, then clicked Sattelite, and zoomed out and moved the view a bit.)

    PHNL actually has a water Runway as well. (for sea-planes to land on.)

    Yeah, it's normal for where the runways are at, but not to have a swamp at the airport.



    thoroughbredoils, what I would do is change mesh at different levels until it looks like things are back to normal. Perhaps one number of an increase to raise the elevation. I'm sure right now if you fly over Honolulu most of the city is also under water. I had this exact same problem after I installed world-wide mesh, and the mesh I installed for the Hawaiian islands was even more defined.

    I don't mess with mesh anymore because I was having to edit airport elevation after airport elevation and then some airports sat on a plateau which looked like crap. I would only use scenery and what have you to make landclass, etc better and just not mess with the mesh stuff. It's just been my experience that all my airport elevations were all messed up and I got sick of it. Plus, mesh will take up even more gigabytes of storage space.

    I doubt it's a mesh issue. If you lower the mesh near the edge of water, it does not run into it like real water would. There are some spots in FSX where the water appears to run up the side of a cliff!

    FSX has many airports placed erroneously on bodies of water.
