[Rectangles with elevation profile] Rendering problem from far

Hi,

we face this problem with Tenerife. Doesn't matter where the rectangle is placed it happens. Maybe near the airport or far from it.

As you get closer to the airport these anomalies will disappear and mesh is displayed correctly.

Further investigation with default terrain titles.

This happens only in the southern part of the island. It seems like rectangles on the north aren't affected.

Hello @MKMatt

That's something we haven't witnessed yet.
Can you provide us with the packages sources producing the problem please?

Regards,
Sylvain

Hello @MKMatt

We were able to reproduce the issue.
The good news is we already have an improvement of the terraforming in the pipe that solves this problem.
However, as it's tricky to push such a modification without impacting existing product, we're looking for a way to release this properly so I don't have an ETA yet.

There is no workaround in the meantime I'm afraid.
Stay tuned.

Regards,
Sylvain

Hi,


Any idea on how we could overcome or minimalize this? We have an addon waiting for release now.

Thanks.

Hello.

No workaround that I am aware of.
Can you try using a power of 2 res (256x256) instead of 250x253. I'm curious to see if it plays a role in the issue.

Regards,
Sylvain
