That looks like a terrain reflection. Assuming that you have them turned on try turning them off and see what occurs.

My guess is, it occurs at the border of a scenery add-on. If the add-on has a slightly lower/higher elevation in the water, then this issue comes up. It's terrain reflection or shadow. It happens with quiet a few add-ons.

I expressed because there is not terrain or object close to match with this shadow.

My question this should be fixed by P3d or Orbx?

The water itself is the terrain since it's elevated from the rest of the water. P3D sees this as terrain I guess.
ORBX could smooth that elevation out but maybe LM could identify the water elevation and not rendering a shadow? Just a thought.

It's an issue which comes up on the boards (LM and ORBX) now and then. I don't know who needs to take action. If vanilla P3D doesn't have these anomalies then I guess it's up to the scenery developers.

The strange line was solved with Orbx Vector 5.

Good you got it solved using Vector. Those terrain reflection bugs are present in P3D since v3, were mentioned several times by me and others both here and in the forums of the scenery developers and are just constantly ignored, no idea why. Probably because so many do not use terrain reflections anyway? I do not know. As a matter of fact, even with using Vector, there are still many sceneries around where you see this bug and it is really annoying...

I have had the time to report some things about version 5 because at the moment I am working at home. Is our responsibility, report and follow up this things and it is the seller's responsibility to correct them.
