Known Issues in RiverPreview1

The follow issues are currently present and known about in riverpreview1:

River Issues

  • River paths with significant curvature suffer from self-intersection artefacts that are beyond the current approach's ability to fix. This manifests in noisy spikes/cliffs/linear artifacts, especially at the valley edges farthest from the river. Research is ongoing on ways to solve this that are both efficient and effective.

  • The endcaps of rivers don't properly "merge" the left and right profile shapes together at the ends yet.

  • Under some scene geometries, "corrugations" are visible in the river floodplain. This will be fixed in the next version.

All other Issues

  • Having "Use Seam Fixing" checked in Graphic Options causes an odd blanking of the Layout View on some video card/driver combinations. Uncheck if this happens to you.

  • "Linear Ridged" Erosion does not respect active masking in some circumstances

  • Full-scene erosion is slower than before, even when not using an active mask. This will be fixed.

  • When viewing Curves, the graph doesn't indicate vertical scale currently

  • Scene View doesn't show water surface if the 3D view is showing a reduced-resolution version of a high res terrain
