The problem is caused by the inner region marked in the picture. It seems the algorithm that computes the inverted falloff, doesn't work well with excluding regions. We'll check it.

As workaround, delete that region in the @cur_grass_border spline. If you need a nice edge in that area, create a separated Forest object with their own spline.

Just curious to know if there has been any movement on this. We are running Forest Pro 4.1.5 and I just ran into a similar issue with the inverted falloff.

Thank you

Yes, this bug is fixed in Forest Pro 4.2.0 beta:

- Inverted fallof curves can be used at same time with including and excluding areas.
