It is great to see you back! I use Xith3d in my flight simulator and I am one happy user. The lack of shades (or the existence of broken shades) somewhat bugs me. I am out of my league in Xith and can't really fix it. Will you please take a look at the shadows and see if you can make them work again. It will be just awesome if you do that. And, again, as Xith3d user, I am happy to wellcome you back !
