I get something very similar in the ps4 version at different times of the day only . I do believe they know there is a issue and a fix is possibly in the next patch , I'm not totally sure about PC , I can only assume it must a similar issue .

Yep, this is the "waffle" look I got once and tried to explain. It's in very particular lighting circumstances... for me it was only track surfaces, not the edges...

I think it has something to do with the shadow settings... try different settings for shadows and see if that helps.

I tried all different shadow levels with no difference. Here is a picture of my current settings. My graphics card won't let me run any higher than this, but if something is far off i can switch some things around to retain 60 fps with vsync on. Game runs horribly with vsync off for some reason. Thanks

Set particle level ab=]nd density to high and it helped, but still pesent. Wish i would have never noticed them because it's killing the experience. :( @sms staff any ideas?

EDIT: I mean look at this.

I have the same issue and it looks like a shadow depth bias issue. There are several games plagued by this problem (like skyrim).

It is more pronounced when you set shadows to low.

For me it looks like this:

It's even worse on the ps4 version it seems.

Hmm, it that just that "grid like" graphical error which I suffer with pc-version. Seems that there's net-like grid on top of picture, especially can be seen from cockpit against tarmac and
other darker surfaces. I don't have that problem in PS4-version, or in any other racing sim&game. I use 50" Sony lcd-tv as screen and distance to tv is around 1.50m.
