Merry Christmas Cmdrs. Here is an important message for those excitedly upgrading to AMD RX 6600 and RX 6800 cards, and potentially others…

There is a bug in one of the graphics options for the game, the "Terrain Material Quality"- the option should be set to Medium IF you see ugly moiré patterns and terrain surface colour flashing close to or on the surfaces (see the examples) until FDev find out what is wrong with it.

This seems to be largely affecting the AMD card types mentioned in the subject line. Mine is a RX 6800 (not the XT variant), changing this setting has vastly improved the overall exploration experience for me. See the examples in the following post.

I was hoping for an official heads up notification of the workaround from Fdev, but this will have to do.

Happy exploring cmdrs! o7
