Landscape glitch

Post by DVAted on Tue Apr 15, 2014 11:34 pm

Hello, fellow VGUnians and friends

I have this bug strictly limited to the mountain area around Jacobstown:


sometimes the colored squares don't appear but the black parts are still there.
this appears with and without ENB.

I don't have a land texture replacer. Only mod affecting this could be the grass mod (increasing grass density) and nothing else.

Weird, right?

Wow, that's the first time I've ever seen anything like that. Have you tried checking to see if that bug occurs without the grass mod?

Other than that the only things I can think of that might cause something like this are video card issues or a problem with the BSA file.

Edit: I had a similar problem with the grass in KOTOR II on a specific planet. Turns out the problem was rooted in my ATI card.

I did but it seems like the jacobstown ground textures are missing because now they're flickering (green grass at first look, if I move a little it's brown dirt, move a bit more and it's snow xD )
then it's all got black holes here and there... well... just look:

I have no idea what could cause this >.>
I have some map mods but most of them are in other cells (like dry canyon, the city, dead crater, etc.). I have no significant mods on that mountain. I have Nevada Skies... does it change the snow on the mountain? the grass?

I had the URWLified version but I don't remember it altering the landscape at all. Are you by any chance using a R9 card, I heard of problems similar to this in BF4 with that series.

What's happening appears to be some kind of GPU problem unless the BSA for the textures is corrupted but I'm not sure if that's even possible.

The fact that the problem is isolated to one area though makes the possibility of it being a driver problem unlikely.

Putting in a mod that alters the textures that appear missing might be worth a shot. If that problem still occurs after that then the possibility of the default textures being corrupt/missing is at least eliminated.

This is the first time I've seen a texture glitch like that. The flickering between nearby textures is normal if it's missing the texture, but the squares with normal map are not.

If you haven't already, I'd use Steam to verify your game cache. If something is borked in a BSA, that'll fix it. Failing that, completely deactivate your grass mod using whatever mod manager you use - there's always the possibility of a corrupted texture file included in the pack not playing nice.

I couldn't find a mod that replaces those textures. Don't really know what they're called...
as far as I could tell it's not the grass mod.
The grass mod doesn't add textures or models
it just uses some ingame settings to increase density and size of vanilla grass...
I guess I can just avoid that mountain...

I'm sorry I couldn't be of any help.  Crying or Very sad 

In all my years of playing Fallout, I've never came across anything like that before. So I have little knowledge on problems like that.

At least it's limited to Jacobstown though, and not the entire wasteland.

Even if you don't have a land texture replacer, it really seems from the pictures that something replaces vanilla textures with a missing file... in the first pictures, aren't these normal maps? Smile

is there any way I can find out what those textures are named?
I looked for snow, jacobstown, mount charleston... didn't come up with anything but a thin ground seam cover

hard to check it, I mean what exactly is the texture, there are many all mixed. Anyway the snow textures are under texture\landscape\dlcanch, like DLCAnch_snow_RockCanyon01.dds
