Missing ground shadows on some aircraft.

Postby cpt bambi » Thu May 17, 2018 4:34 pm

I'm getting missing shadows on some of my aircraft, doesn't matter which one i use either my pmdg 737 or my just flight fokker friendship.

What happens is the shadow that is cast on the ground from the aircraft, the fuselage shadow will be missing but the wings, tail and nose of the aircraft ect will cast a shadow, just the fuselage shadow will be missing.

Hello,

Are you seeing this with any default aircraft? Also what are your current shadow settings and does changing any of these settings make a difference in what you're seeing? If you can post screenshots too that will help. This topic details how to post screenshots to the forums: viewtopic.php?f=6313&t=122277

I've tested various stock aircraft but the problem seems to be with addon aircraft, these pics were also taken at a default airport.

If you're only seeing the issue with add-on aircraft I recommend reporting this issue to these developers as well. There may be an issue with the aircraft model.
