    Question Scenery in water

    I wanted to include a picture and resized the picture to the size of a postage stamp but when I attempted to upload it kept telling me it was too BIG, Huh??? My question is, is there a corrective action for scenery that appears in water, in this case some trees and houses appear in a river next to a runway. Tried Vector elevation didn't apply to this airport.

    Just repeat the steps you took when you managed to include pictures in some of your previous posts.....
    If the 'water scenery' is default stock FSX, try replace the airport with some kind of add-on.

    There are some anomalies in FSX scenery, including flying cars, floating (in the air) buildings, and scenery that is somewhat offset from where it should be. The "water problem" is often exacerbated by some add-ons, such as a 3rd party mesh or landclass. With ADE (Airport Design Editor) you can modify offending scenery, though if you've not used it there will be time and effort to learn it. Perhaps an add-on scenery that covers the area would change it too, though that's not a guarantee.

    There also might be add-ons that can help, such as roads, rivers, and lakes from ORBX or Ultimate Terrain USA.

    It sounds indicative of a mesh issue. That, or hurricane season is upon us... Look for an Air Force One fly over...

    Glad you got it fixed. It helps us help the next person if you share what the final solution was.

    What I did and not just for the scenery in the water issue, I completely uninstalled FSX and went through the arduous task of reinstalling everything. The net result for the water issue was then to do a clean reinstall of that particular add-on scenery. Hence the roundabout to fix this and many other issues.
