Hi mokilok,

Thanks for going to the trouble to share footage of this.

I have a few questions for you that will enable me to submit a bug report on your behalf:
(Some of these you have already provided answers for)

What is the game version?
The number at the bottom left of the main menu is the game version.**

Please provide your specs including OS, CPU, RAM and GPU model.
Need OS here please

When you restart the game and your PC do you still encounter this issue?

What is the game Seed of your session?
On PC this number can be found at the top right of the Cartographer (the Cartographer is on the main menu).

What graphics settings are you using in game, a screenshot of your settings page might best illustrate this.
You mentioned it’s the same on all settings.

Were any settings changed from the default? Have you added any custom islands?

Are you using any Mods or have you modified the game in anyway?

Hello, thanks for your response.

I have exectly the same problem, game was fine for a long time (24hrs playing) suddenly shadows are filckering. I have tried all graphical setups. For me this is unplayable now :frowning:

Game version: 0,76,01

o mods and not create custom island.
this is the free Epic Game version as well.


I’m also running the Epic version, everything was running fine until day or so ago when I started to get crazy shadow flicker and FPS tanking. I’m running RTX 3090 at 1440p and it’s near unplayable now, even with most graphics settings low!


Same thing for me but I’m on steam — worked fine for 40+ hrs but shadows started flickering last time I turned it on… so intense that it’s hard to even look at the screen with literally every shadow dancing and flickering. Cycling through the different antialiasing options helped slightly (I’d been playing with fxaa with no issues; txaa seems to have the most affect on the shadows).

Playing on a decent setup —i7, gtx 1660… just bizarre that it happened so many hours in.
