Here is my screenshot of the issue in Alaska, USA after the latest USA world update.
I am in Online mode, rolling cache disabled, I even tried setting terrain data to 200 but it didn’t affect the issue.
Please upvote if you’re seeing the same, and perhaps screenshots/locations too.
This is not new to 220.127.116.11, and it is pretty ugly. I think it happens in most places (so it’s not specific) and seems to be related to LOD. It “fixes” as you get closer, but agree it should not be happening.
It is new to this latest patch, I’ve never seen it before and it seems no one was talking about it until this update. Yes it does seem to eventually draw in when right on top of the area, but not always 100%. As for LOD, I’ve had the same manual settings set in the config file and it still occurs. They also somehow messed up the water masking as now there is none anywhere I’ve flown that had some beautiful water masking prior to this update (Bahamas, Turks and Caicos, Hawaii, etc). That’s on a separate thread.
Maybe I just assumed it was this terrible before (since there are many LOD related scenery issues). Well, chalk this up to another 1 bug fixed 1+ bugs introduced (or mostly, 1 bug fixed, 2 slightly related but more nuanced bugs introduced).
Yeah it’s unfortunate . Hopefully it will get fixed soon, I really love flying around tropical islands and such. Look at this thread, I posted some pics in there too. Go to the locations mentioned and see what it looks like since the update for yourself:
The issue resolves itself when you get closer to the coast, but returns when you fly farther away. I have only observed it in the USA so far, but other users see it in other locations. I think it is related to the mesh LOD. It is caused by the terrain having no texture on it near the water, not by the water creeping up the side, so the title of this thread is perhaps inaccurate.
That isn’t at all what we are reporting. There is water riding up the sides of cliffs along coastlines. I experienced it too, just take a flight along the northern coast of Molokai Hawaii. I took screenshots but attached them in a Zendesk ticket, I don’t believe I posted them here on the forum. And they are sometimes simply sharp water colored triangles running up the cliff face. Never saw it before this update.
I already posted a screenshot with the VFR map open earlier in this topic Coastline glitch - water creeping up coasts/cliffs . Notice the island closer to the plane on the left does not have the issue, it is only the islands in the distance. As I flew closer to them the white areas along the transition between water and land disappeared. My settings are predominately on High with the odd one set to Ultra or Medium. LOD was 200.
