Please be aware:

Applies to Issue Workaround
FS9 Car Spinning on Bumper: The standard Rwy12 libraries contain three demo files named ExtraObjects_demo.bgl, ExtraObjects_demo_A16N.bgl  and ExtraObjects_demo_FS9.bgl  which display a large number of vehicles (including one car spinning on its front bumper) and other objects in the area just east of the CYYJ main terminal. CYYJ (2014) excludes all these objects. However, certain add-ons including, reportedly, VOZ and Southern California Scenery Enhancements v2.0, incorporate/call these library files. Ensure CYYJ (2014) has higher priority in the Scenery Library than any addon that calls these libraries. Alternately, locate and delete these troublesome files from those libraries. (They do not appear to serve any useful purpose.)

CYYJ (2017) is "freeware". As such, support is limited. However, I will respond to your queries/problem reports - at least with an acknowledgement - and make a reasonable attempt to resolve any problems reported. Please do not report problems/issues in other than the latest release.

Should you wish to report a problem or other issue in CYYJ (2017), please use THIS LINK. But, before doing so, please confirm that CYYJ (2017) really is at fault by selectively enabling/disabling other add-ons in your Scenery Library that may interact with CYYJ (2017) to see if the symptoms change. And, remember, a picture is often worth 1000 words. So, don't be shy about attaching one or more screenshots.
