Doubled windsock (bug?)

Hi.

Some customers report doubled windsocks in our products however during our tests only one was visible. We are sure that in the project there is only one windsock placed. Can this be a sim bug?

This effect occurs during the (strong) wind.


Here: https://forums.flightsimulator.com/t/sim-update-6-flight-live-come-here-for-updates/459829/2 the following fix is mentioned:

"-Fixed windsocks bad orientation on some bespoke airports "

Is this related to the bug in the screenshot?

Hello.
That's not something we saw yet but looking for it on forums, it seems you're not the only one to encounter the exact same problem.
- The package is built with SU5 and users are testing with SU5?
- Do both windsocks disappear if the user removes your package?
- Can he take the same screenshot with devmode "Sim Object" option enabled and "Show animatables" checked?

Dunno if this does help but I experienced the same issue in my previous package (LN Design - EGLK Blackbushe).

All my customers where complaining about a double windsock even tho I managed to remove that (I had a custom made windsock closer to the real counterpart).

After that, I saw that even tho it was not appearing in DevMode, it was popping out when loading in the game without DevMode enabled and loading the compiled scenery, no matter the exclusion rectangles placed.
