# 1 Flickering Shadows
04-27-2010, 10:12 AM
There were one or two threads on this, but i cant find them, never got bumped.

On the ground shadows are fine. However in space, when my ship is in motion, the shadows on it move like a flickering image. Looks like as if im flying beside a giant grating. This is encountered only on High and Med shadow settings, which i assume means that its an issue with dynamic shadowing, since Low is 'simple' shadowing.

Its been this way ever since launch, so I tink it might be just the game engine's limitation, but either way it looks pretty jarring when i watch. The shadows do not represent any object blocking the light source.

At the very least, I'd like to know if its meant to be like this, so i dont have to worry that there's some problem with my computer.
