LDRC is a cabin not an airport. I used LDRC to represent Lower Dangerous River USFS Cabin and that cabin falls within the FTX SAK (Southern Alaska) Region so you need SAK.  If you have mesh active, turn if off and try it. (There is no vector adjustment for this cabin).

""" elevation for LDRC is sunken """
Not quite sur what you mean? A screenshot would be helpful.

Just checked the scenery. All is well displayed and no elevation problems.
- Have you got Orbx SAK installed?
- Did you choose the Orbx recommended settings in Option-World-Terrain?
- Do you use a high resolution mesh like Pilot's Ultimate?
Many greetings

Hi,
Yes I have SAK, and Yes I have Pilots Ultimate Global.
I have my terrain set at 5 M, if that is what you mean?
As I flew towards the cabin, which was on my left, there is what appeared to be a large trench running alongside it, which I mistaken for a Runway.
I'm guessing the Terrain mesh has messed it up.

Thanks

Brian
P.S. Not sure on how to Screen shot

I guess this is the problem: Pilots Ultimate Global
Try the airport again after you disabled the North America part of this mesh.

Thanks Dieter,

I’ll surely give that a shot next time I’m on.
Certainly thought it was a Runway, until I hit the end of the trough, had have a laugh 😆.

This is the airstrip Dangerous River/A70.

Well I must say, Your Airstrip looks a damn sight more functional than mine was. LOL

Kind Regards

Disabled North America, Pilots Terrain, No trench, but for some reason it had all this blurriness and wouldn't render.
So Ill stick with the Trench, or go on PILOTs site as I believe they have a flattening tool?

Thanks for your help Dieter
