[RESOLVED - SU8] Snow problem on third party scenery

Hi MS/Asobo.

Since the SU5 update, the snow does not cover anymore the totality of my third addon sceneries.

Here are some screenshots of the problem:

What can be the problem ? Is it a preview of the vertices quota intended to be added in 2022, or do i miss something in my scenery (before Su5, snow covering worked on the whole scenery, regardless of the LODs) ?

Best regards

Hello.

Can you tel us a bit more about what your package contains and how it's configured?
Ideally, put a link to package sources as a private comment so we can have a look directly. :)
Regards,
Sylvain

Hi Sylvain. Could you please shed some light on whether at some point in time we will have some control over snow? Current implementation is very unrealistic in the airports.

Still no news from Asobo ?
- The snow on building is only available when the model doesn't have any lods

Hello.

The devs have pushed a fix on this but I need to test it before I can come back to you and say it's solved.
