chequerwise displacement pattern on sattelite image textures of community maps
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When loading certain Arma2CO custom terrains into Arma3 via All in Arma,
there occurs a strange pattern of sattelite image texture distortion on some terrains.

The error looks as follows, on the example of the usermade terrain "Esbekistan" (see link for download).

some more examples, apparently the error affects more than half of the available community terrains.

nope - we cannot modify X number of community made terrains.
even more the author is often not longer around

BI just has to fix the source itself/ensure backwards compatibility

I can confirm that I tried MANY setups for my 4096 x 5 terrain, none of them solved this bug.

This is actually a major problem and I really hope BI is going to look into this.

At the moment, it's preventing me from releasing my terrain.

I can confirm that Schulzit and I tried many setups. If there are no plans to fix this short-term, would it be possible that we get some information on how to avoid it?

I've been able to workaround it by using 10m/px rasters instead of the previous 1m/px resolution.

That is just a workaround, because the loss of resolution is not acceptable.

still no fix, its really sad!

Ran into this myself the other day! BI, please, look into this.
