• 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.

FSX SCASM Runway eliminating World of AI Traffic, only during day

Hi guys,

A very interesting issue at hand here I would like to get your opinion on.

Here's the SCASM code.

This is the runway at Kelowna Airport, and the code at all my other airports is similar. For some reason though, the SCASM code is responsible for the disappearance of World of AI aircraft, and that while only during the day. As far as I know the problem is only in FSX.

I'm thinking of going to ask World of AI to weigh in on this as well, A SCASM runway is not that uncommon. Please note that I tried changing the coordinates to see if that gave a different result.

If there's anyone who is using World of AI and has a working SCASM runway, can you pleae post it here? Also, any input on this strange issue is of course welcome ;)
This is a common FSX bug. A sure way to get rid of it on user side is to disable "Aircraft casts ground shadows".
