Strange "grass box" issue around airport

Post by Rhett » Sun Jul 09, 2017 7:57 am

Hi there,

I noticed the following strange looking "grass box" issue around the taxiways and runways. I have confirmed it is present in both my P3Dv4 and FSX-SE installations (on separate drives).

It is as if there is a "double" or "boxed" ground surface or grass layer.

Is this correct or is there something I am missing?

Kind regards,

Rhett

this is normal; it's here to give some 3D 'depth' to the grass pad.
It's not supposed to be seen from such close distance though-it looks a bit weird :D

Thanks Emilios for the quick reply.

Ok. No problem. It is true that I only noticed it from a light GA aircraft up close and not from 747!

Kind regards,

Rhett.

You can use the attached .bgl if you want and switch between the default grass, and a flat grass model. I doubt you will like the flat more, but in case it gets annoying when flying lower aircraft.

to make this work you will need to

1. navigate to \flytampa\Amsterdam\scenery
2. rename 'grd_grass.bgl' to 'grd_grass.off'
3. drop the extracted file into that folder

when you want back the default file, switch back the extensions (ie grd_grass.bgl and grd_grass_flat.off)
