If I apply alpha blending (in editor, for example on tree), then the object wont cast shadow. Is it somehow possible, to use alpha blending and still have objects cast shadow?

if you have a look at our default trees for example you willl notice that the 'leaves' are not fully opaque.
There is some light shininh through them ... so they support transparency but also cast a shadow.

Please check your settings and especially the material attributes.

I can confirm if alphaBlending="true" is in a <material> tag the texture will NOT cast a shadow. I have to explicitly make the chainlink fences materials not have alpha blending so the chainlink texture can actually cast a shadow.
