    True that.

    I never could discipline myself to do that, though. I always end up laying track for a monstrosity that I'll never finish. I have several such monstrosities on my hard drive. Want one?...

    You may be onto something in that it's an aging problem with DEMEX: The data has passed its "legacy" ability to read/apply.

    Have you tried using VT Builder since the USGS has again changed their tif format? I have read VT can on longer convert current USGS tif's into a DEMEX usable format.

    Found it/fixed it.

    It was in the tile ceiling/floor depth menu. Adjusted the tile to a lower floor and all is well. Haven't a clue why this particular tile had a different floor setting.
