Realised this online a couple of days ago,
If you get shot up and one of your elevators or ailerons is shot up, but no COMPLETLY destroyed. And you look at your shadow you will realise that it appers in the shadow as if the WHOLE aileron or elvator has been shot off.

Not a major bug though.

That is not a bug -- they just didn't bother wasting time programming for this.

Computer programmers know what bugs are.

It is not a bug, but an error in the model (which you could very well call a bug if you wanted to).

For each damage model, there is a corresponding shadow model.

For example, if you destroy the mast on a ship and it tips over, the shadow model will also change to correspond to the new shape.

Simply in this case, either there is no shadow model for the damaged elevator part, or it is misnamed.

In any case, don't expect to see it fixed. Minor errors are present in many objects in IL2-PF (mainly smoothing or UVW errors), but they are seldom corrected unless they are critical problems.
