Cloud shadows on customs ground plane

Recommended Posts

HI

The cloud shadows do not appear on airport custom ground planes, but I do not see it listed as a known issue? Should they be visible over custom airport ground?

They only appear on terrain, so they will not appear on airport overlays.

edit they also appear in water of course!

To elaborate a little, shaders draw triangles and don't have a great idea what they are drawing.  If the shader is the water or terrain shader then you have a good idea that it's  Sea/river or land.  The problem is that the general shader is used for almost everything else, so ai aircraft, clouds (in some circumstances) buildings trees, plyons and custom airport ground. Showing shadows on custom airport polygons would actually work fine if I could distinguish them from other objects which would work badly.  Sadly I cannot tell them apart so I cannot show cloud shadows on airport polygons.
