    That wall of terrain in the first picture looks like what happens when 2 versions of the game get mixed together.
    The RWG has created a new terrain level and when mixed with the old terrain level it creates those sheer cliffs.

    It can happen when a player uses the same name for a game from a previous alpha that was not deleted, or, also
    when a game from a previous alpha is played in a newer alpha.

    This isn't the case - these cliffs don't exist. Once you walk towards them they vanish and reveal the right terrain and the 'wall' jumps outwards a chunk. This does not happen on the pre-generated maps when playing straight from the client. Only when I have the dedicated server running on the host machine. All clients have the wall problem on non-pre packaged maps.

    Then the distant terrain function is showing the old map info. Still the problem is mixing in map data from an old world.

    This is also happening to me. I have no other maps in the folders. Installed a clean A18 with the newest update and still I too am having this issue on our Server.

    All clients see it too and this is pretty much also making the game unplayable to everyone.

    Please Help and let us know if we can do anything to fix this. All servers do not have this issue it seems like there is something we maybe missing?

    This world did not exist in a17 on top of the fresh install with a18. New regen, new seed name, new install - weird problem though.

    Ya, sorry Ladarian, I've seen other posts with that terrain wall and players also saying they have not had previous games. Dunno.
    I would manually go in and delete the saved games folder and let it re-download the map from the server to see if it's any better.

    Thats the first thing we tried. Appreciate the help though.
