Meshsmooth "Classic" method - erronous smoothing on surface

Hey folks,

I can't get my poly-surface to turn out smooth, using the meshsmooth modifier

I'm using classic method cause I want to keep the vertex-points fixed to the other terrain-objects to avoid any air-holes being created

I'm not to familiar with the Meshsmooth modifier but I tried to change the relax and smooth parameters, no luck there.

Also tried a "smooth" parameter on top of the meshsmooth modifier with a different "smooth-angle" from 45 to 60 to 90 to 120, no luck either

It's a good idea to keep your geometry to Quads when using subdivision smoothing. I can see the is a Tri and a Pent in the geom shown.

tnx, I know this, but moving to quads is something I do at the end, anyway, making a 100% quad model out of it doesn't aid in solving the smoothing issue :)
