    I'm trying to use grass_field.dds to add some variety to the groundcover, yet when I use the same looking grass as BNGGrass uses, the grass changes it's shade of green. I doubt this is because of lighting, It looks too odd to feel that way.

    I did also hear in another thread that this isn't meant for Groundcover. What else should I be using to add more variety to the groundcover?

    this could be caused by visual mods, if your sun is not directly overhead it could be a overexaggerated shadow effect.

    It's likely that they are doubled up. If the grid size is set too low/high and your vegetation count is too high, they will double/triple up in the same spot. First thing to try would be to lower the total amount, or just change the grid size. Good luck =)

    I messed around with the gridsize and the grass was still changing colors. I didn't change the MaxElements, but it's at 100500.

    Does this happen to other vegetation items on your map, or just this ONE? If so, just. . recreate it again from scratch and see if it still happens. (posted here instead of PM so other's may learn)

    Also, change the max elements to something like 12,000.

    Utah_plants_bb.dds don't have any problem, yet it doesn't fit the map.

    Also, without changing the billboards, these are the differences
    screenshot_2019-02-28_22-51-06.jpg screenshot_2019-02-28_22-50-32.jpg
    And nothing changed to it when MaxElements are 12,000

    What do you mean by recreate it from scratch? You mean make a totally new file for it?

    That's so strange - I'm no expert with vegetation but I've made it enough to know that it hasn't happened to me yet.

    As far as "create it from scratch" I mean, just click add new ground cover, and set it up from the basics and see if it still happens.

    Right. I've done that a few times already, but nothing was fixed all those times.

    Well I'll try to replicate this for you shortly - working on sound issues atm, but will get to this asap =)

    It's simply the lighting. There doesn't appear to be any obvious settings to turn it off. But attached is an image showing facing the sun (so you see the shaded side) and facing away from the sun, so you see the lit side.
