I used to be aware of one or two airfields with the escarpment problem but all the airfields I've been visiting recently appear to have cliffs all the way round. Every airfield appears to be on a plateau.

I take it this problem exists in FS2004 as well as FS2002?

It's caused by the fact that Gary flattens his airfields. Since the surrounding areas are, often, not flat, then the airfield forces the formation of an escarpment. Nothing, as far as I'm aware, can be done to remedy the problem. Hope I'm wrong.

I have become more aware lately of "cliffs" round the perimeter of Gary Summons' UK2000 airfields where they meet the surrounding VFGM photographic scenery - I don't think it's my imagination. But I haven't made any changes to my scenery setup AFAICR.

Can any of the scenery experts tell me whether I can tweak any settings, or scenery layering, to reduce this apparent discrepancy.
