• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

FSXA Volume Shadows

I was wondering if anyone has had trouble with volume shadows with models exported from 3ds Max?

In the attached picture, the building in the foreground was exported from 3ds Max, and the background building from GMax.

You will notice that the shadows are flashing on the sunny side of the building, and yes my model is Manifold.

Hope someone has an answer on this problem.

P.S Forgot to mention, I see this behavour with default FSX objects as well.

This happened to me for like 2 years. Just recently with new graphics drivers it went away on most buildings....

Thanks, updating my drivers didn't help, just caused problems with other programs, :(

Can't understand why the shadows are OK on GMax models.
