View Full Version : Voxel meshing of natural terrain featurs obscuring bird nests & other loot containers

This is a minor issue, but one I've felt is important enough to document and have been for a while. The octahedral voxel meshing that gives the smooth terrain look to the voxels is having collision issues with loot containers, particularly birds nests but also rotten trash and a couple other containers that spawn regularly on natural terrain. For an experienced player the outline of the birds nest is still obvious even if it's half buried - but for newer players this may be the difference in them finding enough feathers to defend themselves or not.

Yeah this is quite annoying, it makes finding these things much more difficult, perhaps they like it that way though?

Some Birds can and do nest on the ground.

also... I assume the birds that do nest on the ground go some way towards hiding them, unless the pimps could find a way to hide them naturally I find that the partially hidden ones just take that role.

the rubbish piles and others though are another thing

Edit: Sometimes I do find it hard to find nest's but not so much I cant protect myself, although I can understand anyone new having a hard time.

Turning grass distance to lowest helps in seeing nests.
