Grass LOD pop-in problem
Reviewed, NormalPublic


Hi there, since Tanoa's release I noticed some quite jarring problems with grass LOD's due to the new system for phasing the LOD changes which only was a big problem on Tanoa for me and pretty much everyone else. E.g. the grass would change in very close proximity to you in a very noticeable manner.

Also happens on terrains such as Altis as can be seen in the video linked below:

I believe this is not intended.

Video of issue:


Operating System
Windows 10 x64
Steps To Reproduce
  1. Launch vanilla ARMA
  2. Go into the editor and place a unit
  3. Preview and run in any direction while observing grass.
Additional Information

Another example.

I have done clean uninstall and reinstalls on both SSD and HDD and neither have solved the problem.

This is NOT a hardware issue.

This issue still persists, especially on the latest NVidia driver 375.63.

According to my friends this issue apparently isn't just on 970's and someone on the BI forums informed me that it is apparently an engine issue and is out of player control.

Also having the issue on GTX 1060 and had it on RX 270 oc, so its not hardware related.

As @Tsnfdsnkjsdn it is definitely NOT a hardware problem, it is engine related and came in with Apex. I presume it's part of Apex's new LOD rendering system. (Which I think was a step in the wrong direction as to me it's incredibly immersion breaking and distracting.)

Please fix this or at least give the option to change it. It completely kills immersion during gameplay.
