Hmm, this seems like a quite showstopper. Anyone else able to reproduce? At least I know that I’m alone.

I’ve a feeling this is a once off rendering bug. If it keeps persisting try restarting your device completely by following these instructions:

Hey, to help the developers would you be able to give your graphics information?

Most specifically, what is your 3D Object Density? I haven’t experienced this issue myself yet.

For those who can reproduce, can you tell me:

  • How long was your flight
  • Where did you start from/go to, etc…
  • Is there a simple way to reproduce it? (with as little steps as possible)

At LAX after a 11 hour flight from LHR. De spawned and re-spawned and that helped. B787-9 dreamliner.

  • My Flight was 12 hours.
  • I took off from Denver and flew to RJTT.
  • Will try and see easy ways to reproduce.

I’m finishing off a long haul at FACT now so i will see if the issue happens again.

Does it happen with other aircraft too, or just the 787?

Not entirely sure. The 787 was my first and only long haul.

I’m about to land into FACT from EGLL in the 747, will see if the issue reoccurs.

Just landed at FACT with no issues.

I have done multiple flights ranging from short hops to medium-haul and long-haul flights with the out come being the same, no buildings. Out of the probably 15 flights I’ve done from 3D airports to 3D airports, non 3D airport to 3D airports only 3 have I seen buildings on arrival. Airports have been KSFO, KJFK, RJTT, EGLL, LFPG, OMDB, KLAX. As stated before, I will land with no buildings, despawn and respawn and the buildings are there.

@Laura I have found an easier way to reproduce.

If you go onto Solo, takeoff at FALW, put 5X on and fly to FACT, you can see there are no buildings. At least i couldn’t see any.

Just landed there, no vehicles or gate ramps. Using android phone
