I'm going to re-use this post for all cars that have weird shadows (like the snow issues in Del Sol Valley.

I'm tagging it as needs input so we can collect data where there are cars like that.

Will add some pictures to this myself later

List of cars with the issue

- Pickup in Cavalier Cove in Brindleton Bay

- Pickup and two cars in Del Sol Valley

★★ Guide

The shadow on that truck looks really strange! I will check that in my game, because although the shadows look kind of too blocky and opaque to me on that truck, I don't think it looks like that bad, but I'll need to check.

 

I edited all the cars in the game to be available in Buy Mode, and I use them quite bit for lots in my game, but I'll have a look around at the parked cars in the world when I play again. Sometimes I think maybe it's not the vehicles themselves with the problem, but just maybe where they're placed that the shadows don't fall correctly. It's kind of hard to explain.

 

But the truck is the one that has stood out to me for awhile now that the shadow underneath isn't right, like something about it was changed at some point. I know overall though there has been issues with shadows and objects since Cats and Dogs, because of some kind of alteration to how SSAO works in the game.

I see this in my game as well.
