[READ] Shadow movement bug

Post by SwoopGB » Thu Jan 10, 2019 11:11 pm

Sort of a bug anyway, looks more like a design fault to me but anyway:

- PC/Mac/PS4/XB1: PC
- Vehicle/Tool/Model/Object: N/A
- Issue: Shadow movement when time not set to 1:1.
- Single- or Multiplayer: Both
- Steps to reproduce:

Put yourself in the shadow of a tree from around 4pm onwards, just so there's a nice long shadow to watch.
Turn time advance up to 15x.
Look at the trees, gently swaying in the breeze at 60fps.
Now look at the shadow. It's got an fps of about 0.5.....except it's not the fps, it's the update time of the shadow, it's not a smooth transition between jumps. Looks awful. Total immersion killer.

- Does it happen on a standard map without mods yes/no: Yes.
