X-Plane 11 scenery question

Dear PC Pilot

I am unable to get any airport buildings to show in X-Plane 11. For example, at Heathrow the runways are visible with taxiway lights, baggage carts and parked aircraft around the airport, but there are no terminal buildings.

I have the ‘number of world objects’ turned up to maximum and ‘draw parked aircraft’ ticked. I also tried shuffling the scenery_packs. ini file inside my Custom Scenery folder but it didn’t seem to make any difference. If you can think of anything that may help I would be very grateful as I’m not sure where I’m going wrong. I also run the UK VFR photographic scenery.
