Overall the latest build is really good. Performance is much better. Really like the new Outerra build. It would be really nice if they update sea water and patterns. Good job Outerra team

A few thoughts on the new version(mainly on visuals): Congratulations to the devs, this is quite an achievement and performance is also good!
3d trees are a welcome addition and when set to max distance they generate a nice forest. I got the feeling that terrain shading for trees makes the ground a bit too dark up in the air and down between the trees as well.
 Overall the trees seem to be too blueish and do not fit so well with the terrain as their 2d predecessors. They also could have some specular highlights to make them more vivid; atm they look a little dull. The shading/ appearance of far distant (2d) trees looks like dull blobs, maybe this is a mipmap problem. The predecessors had a nicer lighting/shading.
MSAA does not work for me.
Water: I like the surf, it's definitely improved but the foam could last longer. The wave patterns are still too regular.
The environmental reflection kicks in only at short distances making water bodies often too bright.
Clouds: have too much bloom power, (depending on time and weather).
Place holder buildings: often too bright and do not look integrated in world. Some are very ugly.
All I want is to see a pretty Outerra! :D

It's a driver crash. Try updating your AMD OpenGL drivers.

My hardward is kind of old ,the latest drive version was released on 2015, and I have pass the compatibility check before the installing.Also,the previous version 17.1.0.11105 is totally work on the same hardware and graphic drivers.So, is any other possible problem to this issue?

New OT version requires a newer OpenGL version (OpenGL 4.2+extensions compared to 3.3 for the old one), and AMD drivers are notoriously buggy there. Even if they claim to support the features that the new build requires, and therefore pass the test in the installer, the drivers often simply crash when the feature is used. That's what seems to be happening here, a crash in the drivers and we have no way of working around that.

Unfortunately, AMD doesn't support the hardware anymore, hence there's no chance for us to support it either; you may only try disabling some features like 3D trees in world.cfg or eng.cfg. We can't even tell what feature is causing it to crash because AMD doesn't even support the driver binaries on their debug server anymore ...

We are going through the crash reports and fixing what we can. There's a considerable number of out-of-memory errors though, both for system and GPU memory. Likely not your case here.

The new update is really great.  :)

I like the lighting when it's raining but is it possible to deactivate the raindrops?

The old OT version 17 had better lighting for trees compared to 20.0.0 2d trees.
