Terrain does not cast shadow on anything.
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Terrain simply does not cast a shadow on any object. This becomes a problem when the sun or moon sets or rises making rocks, players, and common objects pop out when they should be shadowed by a hill that is blocking light. {F19515}

More a dupe of #2477 than #313, but a dupe nonetheless.
