Hi @MaxCloud13 ,

You said 'after last update not working'.
Do you mean to say that ground merging option for Grass surface was working before the SU8 update?
We will investigate on this

I'm not sure I understood correctly so please, feel free to correct me:
- It was working in SU7 even for the aprons with grass material

- Only aprons with a "grass" surface (like Grass07, Grass02... etc.) have this problem.

- 'Only when just flight' -> When you put your scenery in the community folder and start a flight, the 'ground merging' works ?

Hello @MaxCloud13 ,


We have done some testing and suggest that you use the Ground Merging option in the Airport properties.

As indicated in the documentation :

Basically, these sliders define how much aerial map detail will remain visible by changing the transparency of the lighter (transfer bright) and darker (transfer dark) areas of the element individually.


Regards,

Boris

Hello @MaxCloud13 ,
The ground merging option is working fine but the only thing is since you use coloration on your aprons, you really need to play with the color and the ground merging option in the airport element.
I could play with it and this is the result I got :

Of course it will depend of the apron coloration and the details behind it and the settings in the ground merging values

Boris
