Are the windmills supposed to be spinning?

As the topic suggests, are the windmills lined up in the water north-west of the airport supposed to be spinning?

Did my first flight into this airport in X-Plane 11 yesterday and noticed how none of them were spinning and looked a bit strange when they all looked like static objects.

Winds were probably less than 2-3 knots at the time. The wind turbines are wind-responsive.

Wow, that is so cool!

However, as I recall it the wind was actually like 17 knots or so. Maybe it's also dependent on the direction of the wind?

Will keep my eyes open for this on future flights.

Yeah check it out, we have coded the animation to react with wind via the SAM functionality. So while SAM is working (i assume?), the wind turbines should animate accordingly

Yep, I can confirm they were spinning now. Really cool!
