Problem with roads glitching/disappearing

I'm (still) working on updating a fs2004 airport for FSX, and my current problem is that some roads that border the airport keep, well, disappearing, and gliching from being visible to not. It often occurs when the aircraft moves that whole sections disappear. The pictures at the bottom should illus...

Re: Joining polys not working, no idea why.

I finally figured it out. Apparently they have to share a side, not overlap, and you have to select the first one you have to join, then click on the other one. It was the last two that tripped me up. It's also possible to join over more then one side at once, apparently.

Re: Landclass change not working - what am I doing wrong?

Ok, so no overlapping polygons. I can't seem to get them to join, but that's another thread. Another stupid question - how do you exclude the existing landclass? And how does an airport boundary fit into all this? I really don't know what an airport boundary does. Would an fs2004 airport have an air...

Joining polys not working, no idea why.

I've been trying to join some polygons, and despite following the instructions in this http://www.ptsim.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=2278#p7671 post, neither polys nor lines will join. AutoLinePolyJoin, DisplayJoin, DirJoin, and NameJoin have all been set to true, and name join on it's own and in ...

Landclass change not working - what am I doing wrong?

I've been trying to change the landclass from grass to Airport2 at an airport I'm updating to FSX. And it's not working. I wind up with different areas having different textures, despite having a landclass poly over the whole area. Or more accurately, a bunch of polys over a couple of .bgl files, al...

Re: Really stupid question - adding points to/joining polys

Ok, I just now did what you said (I haven't needed to join any polys until now), and nothing happened. Overlapping with the same name (a couple of them), and name join and auto join set to true, and nothing happened. Tried every method you posted, and I still couldn't get the polys to join. No idea ...

Really stupid question - adding points to/joining polys

Ok, this is really basic, but I have no idea what to do. How do you add a point to an existing polygon? I right click, but there's no option to do it. And is it possible to join two polygons? I would assume yes of course, but I don't have the slightest clue how to do it.

Re: Anybody got a tutorial on how to turn water into land?

Is method 2 from scott967's post at this link possible? Because if it is, then it would be a lot less work. Thing is, I tried it, and it didn't work, but that could well just be me doing something wrong.

Anybody got a tutorial on how to turn water into land?

I'm trying to update some coastal fs2004 airports to FSX, and one problem in a few of them is that the runway is in the water, which is raised up to runway level by the flatten. Editing the flatten won't help, since the runway itself is in it. Does anybody have a tutorial on how to turn water along ...
