Author Topic: Object (truck) casts shadow on mountain wall, terrain under truck does not?  (Read 3642 times)

Standing on the edge of a cliff with the sun behind me, looking west, the truck (object) casts a clear shadow on the opposite cliff face. The terrain underneath me - Mt. Rainier - does not seem to have a shadow. The shadow of the truck seems to hang in midair.
Is it in the settings?
I used default settings in this screenshot, did not touch any of the graphics/terrain settings.
Moving sliders has no effect so far.

If not, this basic terrain shading issue is something for the to-do-list, perhaps?

It is in the TODO list - terrain doesn't cast shadows yet. We need to make a couple of changes to the rendering system before we can enable it.

The change it is going to make to the look of the whole engine will be substantial. I can't wait.

Sounds great, can't wait for the teaser shots to show. I purchased my GTX 680 today and I have officially christened it in Outerra. Turned up all settings (that I could understand) and wow, really can't wait to see the next significant advancement with OT engine.

Wow! I didn't even notice that was missing. That's surely going to add a lot of more immersion.
