Tested and all fixed with the drop-in file, many thanks. The Chicago skyline is back!

While I'm on a roll finding issues, unfortunately I have a further problem around KORD. A couple of things -
- I have several missing road segments compared to default, mainly to the east, but also to the south-west.
- The industrial area immediately to the west has been replaced by a smaller warehouse industrial auto-gen (admittedly this is only a minor issue).

Any chance you can work your magic again?!

HI - Enjoying the new KORD scenery! I was wondering if there are supposed to be wet surfaces when it is raining? I did not notice any on my last flight but wasn't sure if I it was implemented or it was for some reason not showing up for me. If not, is this something that might be implemented in the future? Thanks!

Eric

Hello, love the new scenery. The only problem I've had so far is that some of my AI traffic seems to be parked at the wrong gates (I.e. CRJs at Terminal 5 M gates). I use Ultimate Traffic Live and had fsdrea's ORD but have it disabled. Is there something I am doing wrong.

Are you absolutely sure that you don't have any other active afcads in your sim?

Hmm, interesting as I am not getting that effect. I just tested again with default P3D rainy WX scenario. I had FSDT KORD but removed that so no other AFCAD in place.

Do you have "Dynamic Reflections" enabled in your P3Dv4?
Do you see it in any other sceneries?
Sometimes it's necessary to have more rain and look a little bit closer... :roll:

Hi. Yes, they are there but
a) only in P3Dv4
b) they depend on the amount of rain. Generally water should not stay on aprons so we tried to keep it somehow realistic. With the maximum rain amount you actually get wuite a lot of reflection but with the little precipitation the effect is hardly seen indeed.
c) you might make sure that you have dynamic reflections enabled and the reflection quality is somewhere at the right side of the slider.

Thanks, maybe it was not enough rain (I am using P3D v4.5) as you said. It was definitely very light and intermittent the first time I noticed the lack of wetness and then maybe I did not wait long enough with my default WX rain test. I do see the effect in some other sceneries but it sounds like yours is more realistic in that you won't see it immediately. My dynamic reflections are set at lowest setting so that could be it also. Thanks for the info!!

At certain angles, the default runway shows through. At least for 10C.

Could this have to do with my disappearing roads problem?

I am having an issue where no SODE's are showing up at ORD, but I have the most recent version installed. Any ideas how to fix this?

Also, the gate numbers are sligthly incorrect. For instance, Terminal Lima has gates that go from L1 to L24, and L24 shows up as L16 in the simulator....

I am also seeing the same thing at gate K12 on PMDG 748. I am a beta tester for PMDG. Happy to assist if needed.

Has anyone noticed a bit of shimmering like an issue related to AA. I have noticed it at DD KORD recently.

Thanks
Randy
