Can you post the screenshot please?

Unfortunately our scenerys do not support "runways follow terrain" option due to the flatten mesh.

@DD Stanislaw,

Regarding installing airports separately, if each DD airport was in its own folder, then we users could manually use whatever 3 Chicago airports we wanted very easily.

Torbin,

That occurred on the Taxiway A bridge! Also, any progress on an update for the night lighting?

Interesting rcastrig, so it seems to be bridge related, because even though mine occurred on 28C, it was right over the bridge. Fast forward to 1 minute into the video on the link...

Hello,

Can you please consider putting the tower views (shift-5) of ORD, MDW, and PWK just above the control tower? Hitting shift-5 places the camera view on the ground at the base of these towers. It's fun to watch landing replays from the tower! Thank you for your consideration.

Thanks for suggestion. Maybe it's not the most hot point that we are already working on in case of this project, but will be taken under consideration.

FYI: My colleague confirmed that it will be done in the next update.

Torbin, I also have an issue with the bridge on 28C. Was just taking off and as I passed over the bridge the plane dipped real fast! Hopefully this will be addressed in the update! Still a great product though

Agreed rcastrig, the airports are very nicely done. I look forward to the fixes.

I noticed this white line that goes through the scenery in rain and low visibility only. I think it has something to do with the wet runway textures. Tried everything for a fix. Anyone else notice this?

This seems to be strange. Maybe a puddle layer... Are puddels being shown correctly? Are they not flying in the air the scenery?!

From my experience - the same effect is visible with some add-on shader at dawn/dusk. It seems to be more related to the sim engine itself.
