Huh.... I've only played some while at night, but still haven't actually seen the moon.  Wasn't it something that needed to be turned on manually before? idk


There's this one building model with green awnings where the building itself likes to disappear while you're around it, leaving just the green awnings.
(I'm not talking about green gas station / toll roofs.)

What is the building model selection based on?  There's some tight cities/villages where the roads are impassable, and I'm not sure if it's due to just poor placement, or if the models are just oversized - with the front steps perhaps also frequently making it tougher.  All of the above, maybe.


I also never knew so many garages existed in the world.  :))  Kind of jealous of the guy who lived in a shack attached to 5 garages.  :P
Though maybe it was an auto repair shop or something, I wasn't gonna bother to go confirm.

Hi, thanks for the update. Looks nice when it works.
Unfortunately I've got weird graphics artefacts appearing instead of normal tiles. They seem to be mirroring some existing patches of land. Mostly duplication of road tiles that make no sense or patches of water where there should be none. Always a full quadtratic tile.
They seem to take longer to appear when I dial down the resolution to 1280x800 and set all settings to their lowest. So it seems a problem handling my 4GB VRAM.
I've got a MacBook Pro 2018 Corei9 6 Core 2,8 GHz 32GB RAM 4GB vega20 (mobile version, not the "real" vega20) with windows 10 latest build (not fast ring or something like that)
Any clues? Installer told me my drivers where good enough (AMD Radeon 20.10.36.01)

Installer checks only the basic requirements, it's always good to update to the latest drivers.

It seems to be a driver problem. If you are running out of memory, the drivers should be able to swap some with the main memory at the price of some performance. Unfortunately, we have a bad experience with AMD OpenGL drivers and their newer GPUs. Not only the performance isn't as expected, but each architecture has weird bugs of its own ...

There's no trees at all in Outerra's Iceland, not even in the spots where there are some IRL.  :(  Many of the lakes are missing, too.  It's got most of the rivers, I believe, though not every single one.

But I highly recommend checking out Route 1 West of Akureyri, Iceland.  That entire valley that Route 1 takes is ridiculous!  (you might want to set it to a realistic FOV)
I was there on Jan 15, I think around mid-day? (it might snow/rain sometimes, but I got a ridiculously amazing view of the sun coming through a hole in the clouds down the valley)

Unfortunately, I failed at taking what were going to be my best screenshots.  Either I accidentally hit Share on my controller, instead of my Steam Screenshot key, out of habit from console, or I actually didn't do anything at the moment I turned the best corner because I was really stunned by it


I got some additional info and can keep trying, but man I just could not figure out how to get Steam screenshotting bound to my controller today (or actually how it works by default).  Supposedly by default, with it enabled, you have to press 2 buttons, not just 1 as I have it set on my PS4. idk

Also, am I an idiot? (probably).  Why does Outerra show the day getting shorter in Iceland between Jan 15 and 16th?

In order not to deviate from the thread, I added a video comment about the lack of vegetation in Iceland.
