[0.16.51] Train preview only shows some shadows

How it looks in real:

How the train preview shows it:
Missing shadows for radars and robotport, probably some more.

Thanks for the report.

I can't remember if this was intentional or not.

It should theoretically be consistent, and either show all or nothing.

Most shadows are baked into sprites so if the intention was to not show shadows it's not possible to *not* show shadows currently.

In that case, my vote would be to leave things how they currently are, since it means less is being rendered in the viewport.

As far as I can tell all animated shadows of some sort do not render.

Ok, I changed it for 0.17 so it will render shadows as well. It's not a perfect copy of how normal shadows are done but it's close enough.

Why would the shadows in the train preview be any different from other shadows?

I would guess it using a custom renderer that didn't implement this.
