The surface base marker (F9 key) is shown, not at the base elevation, but at sea level.

Thanks. This is a known problem.

In fact, I am planning an extensive overhaul of the surface marker mechanism. I want to implement them as another quadtree layer, so that level-of-detail issues are automatically taken care of. I.e. a label is only displayed when the tile it is associated with is active. Once I get around doing this I will also take care of the elevation problem.

Martins, please don't change it into something that makes adding new markers too complicated

As it is, it's simple to get a marker list from http://planetarynames.wr.usgs.gov/Se...s?target=CERES and export it to Orbiter.

If you need to split the data into layers (makes sense for zooming), may I suggest that you do it by feature diameter ? USGS lists have that info.
