Lines in Trees?

Recommended Posts

I am running Andras UHD mesh here along with Mister X trees.  Has anyone seen these lines in the forests at all?

This is an artifact due to the calculations Laminar uses for the forests.

Andras explained it somewhere.

Yes, thats a long known bug to Laminar/Ben Supnik. Effectively the forest polygons are "sliced up" to make them easier to handle by the scenery engine. But there is some slight offset along the polygon borders when they get filled in by trees. So, in the end you see the "border" of those forest chunks ... There is not much that can be done about this (other then Ben fixing the issue at some point ... but he - obviously - didn't have time to do so for a few years).

(and yes, I am still lurking around here at some times .... which doesn't means that I changed my mind ... just old "habits" 😉 )
