[PORTIMAO] [VISUAL] Red/White kerbs appear very dark (flipped Normals?)


Recommended Posts

  • Description

    The red & white kerbs in Portimao appear very dark during many times of day. All other track surfaces are unaffected.

    Potential cause of the issue: It looks like the Normal Map, or one of the channels in the Normal map texture is flipped, or potentially the vertex normals are facing the wrong way. I think it is more likely to be an issue with the material/texture rather than the geometry as every surface that uses the "red and white kerb" material is affected (more noticeable on certain parts of the track due to the direction of the sun light). Pay special attention to the shading of the white concrete end piece of the kerbs which display correct shading and compare to the shading on the red & white kerbs.
     
  • This is noticeable in most weather conditions except for "Official" as the lighting is mostly flat in that one. It is also very noticeable during cloudy weather.

  • Platform PC
  • Game Mode Any
  • DXDiag see attachment
  • Troubleshooting attempts Tried different game modes, different daytime and weather settings
  • How to reproduce:

    1) Enter any game mode and select the Portimao circuit
    2) Select a time-of-day other than "Official", for example sunrise or morning
    3) Observe how red & white kerbs are much darker compared to other track surfaces. Pay special attention to the shading of the white concrete "end pieces" of the kerbs which utilize a different material and which display correct shading and compare to the shading on the red & white kerbs.
