Carpet and that twitchy look

PostAuthor: Katroine » Tue Jun 14, 2005 2:47 am

There's a light carpet in the CEP floor coverings. I used it as a full length floor covering but it keeps doing that look like it is laid over sand or something.
I know EDGE in Elysia has a similar carpet, if not the same, and it does not do that. Anyone wanna give me a pointer on how to remove it or fix it?
Thanks in advance.

I am thinking you're talking about "flickering"?

Check the Z axis of it and bump it up by .01 (so instead of being .00 or .01 make it .02 and see if that fixes it)

If there is a covering that is below it, it should be above it so they don't share the same space... Also if you lay carpets down to "tile" them make sure they don't overlap. just zoom in and adjust the X and Y until they meet but don't overlap by even a pixel line otherwise you'll get a visible seam...

They are all bumped up to .01 or .02 as someone told me to alternate to get rid of it, but I still have it.
Yeah, flickering like.

With many of those carpets (and other things with the shimmer effect) you can go -0.01 (or even lower) and it fixes them without losing the carpet in the floor. Just watch if you are trying to cover something else that it doesn't poke through.

Make sure to alternate the height like a chessboard when covering a large area:

0X0X0
X0X0X
0X0X0
X0X0X

0 = on floor
X= 0.01.

OXOX to you all for the good advice. :)

I got it now, I was doing alternating sides but forgot the tops and bottoms.

Danke.
