Not quite finished but it should be out by the end of the week, as part of Farm Strips Vol 3.
Have to check whether there are any objects not issued in the first two vols.

haveBumpy and sloping runways are quite common. Bent runways? I've just finished Stoke Airfield, on the banks of, if not in, the Medway. The runway is a gentle continuous curve. That's in line with the description in Lockyears and the field's own website. Can't wait to try it!

Until MS give us the ability to create sloping runways we are going to
worseto live with this.
Airfields have to be flattened so that the runways and taxiways don't produce bouncing. The flatten produces a hardened surface. You can ignore flattens for grass runways as these are naturally bouncy and this is what Gerry has emulated so successfully in his private strip work.
Very few airfields are really flat so creating a flatten command is a
horrible necessity. The result is a plateau or a trough - this being
side,for airfields with a large vertical variation. Hopefully MS might start looking at this in FS2006 - it's well overdue now.

Most of MS airfields seem to be on a plateau, with at least 3 escarpments
around, I know for a fact that EGTO (Rochester) only drops away on one
dropbut then it is on the top of one side of a deep valley, and it does not
away on the north and east side as in the MS scenery. Frank
