terrain anomalies noted
« on: December 05, 2017, 12:53:28 pm »

I'm guessing this section is for users to point out things they've discovered which might not be getting generated realistically. You probably already know about everything that could possibly be noted, but just in case, here are a few observations:

1) sometimes streams flow uphill.

2) in places where the terrain is steep, trees often appear to float beside or slightly above the ground

looks like this one particular type of tree is more likely to "float" than are other types of trees on the same slope:

Yeah, those are just imperfections of the current river and (sprite) tree systems. They have been around for ages and weren't really bothering anyone since Outerra is a continued WIP and we just know that all of that will get fixed at some point :)
