5.2HF1 "squiggly lines" water reflection issue

Recommended Posts

Does anyone else have this issue that I can only describe as "squiggly lines" being formed in a straight pattern across water? Video - https://streamable.com/y92vzq

Doesn't seem to matter if I use medium/high/ultra water reflections.

Is it only in one place or everywhere? That looked like it was in a constant physical location as you flew closer, is there an add-on airport close by? First thought was a terrain flatten anomaly??

Hi,

I also did experience that - but very seldom and at different locations. I had no chance to reproduce it constantly. So hard to track down.

I too see them at certain locations. I see them near Aerosoft PANC and, if I remember correctly, Orbx PAVD. I have a feeling it's related to reflections.

I think it is a height difference there causing a shadow. You can remove it adding a big flatten there or disable shadows from terrain.

I had the same problem. As blaunarwal points out, it is a shadow issue..

Yes agree with Blunarwhal - had it now and then not everywhere but always where the land meets the water, until I disable terrain shadowing then it dissappeared. I do not notice the lack of terrain shadowing anyway.
