Shadow Flickering and banding
Upon the suggestion of the Private Division tech support team I'm reporting this bug. Apologies if it's already been reported.
at certain angles at ground level on Kerbin, severe shadow flickering occurs. At it's worst, dark bands cross the entire scene at various distances from the camera. This problem subsides as the focused craft launches and ascends higher into the atmosphere.
the tech support team report they've seen this issue on Nvidia cards before but don't have a fix for it. There are also posts on the KSP forum reporting the same thing but no solutions have been found. The only common denominator is Nvidia cards but no particular generation - the problem persists on both GTX and RTX series GPUs. I've encouraged those forum posters to report here too in the hope of providing enough info to find what the problem is.
My game is a fresh install and new game start. I also have a 'clean' install of the latest Nvidia drivers.
Although I can't change the severity of this bug to 'severe'' I could definitely describe it that way as it is totally immersion breaking.
