Re: Outside Windows missing its Glass

★★★ Novice

As already mentioned here, this is unrelated to the problem in FH (which in my case was fixed only by purchasing seasons). I also have all my graphic settings on ultra.

I hope if they eventually do fix them in forgotten hollow, that they would fix it in low view distance option as well. I want to turn that down, as I find a very noticeable lag in game since seasons patch and that was why I had put view distance down lately to begin with.

@tsukuri_8 , as NeutralSupply mentioned above, and me as well on page 1. I said "it's fixed" by Season Ep....as of today not seeing any problems with the glass being missing in any of the neighborhoods, especially Forgotten Hollow. everything was fixed after Season was installed. not too sure about those who don't have "Season"

I have the same problem, in Forgotten Hollow no glass texture.
Game cleaned up and repaired over Origin.
Tested in a vanilla game.

I have Seasons, and yet the problem is there.

Now I have the phenomenon in Willow Creek but only when I moved to the building mode during a storm. It can not be due to the CC, I've already extensively tested it in a vanilla game.Now I wait until the storm stops, if nothing changes then, I can probably forget this game stand, which unfortunately belongs to a story.

This thread looks dead, but I was wondering if a solution was ever found. The glass issue only seems to apply to doors and not windows. I tried the suggested distance fix, and it didn't work. The issue for me is in Forgotten Hollow. The glass shows up when you are inside of a room, but not when you are looking from the outside.

@Nazgune this is an issue in Forgotten Hollow - see original report here.  I am merging this with the original thread.

Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Check exterior facing of glass pane doors in Forgotten Hollow.
What happens when the bug occurs? The exterior facing of any door with glass panes is invisible, so you see right through the frame of the door to the inside of the building. It doesn't happen on the interior facing.
What do you expect to see? Glass pane texture on both sides of door.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

I have no idea when this started to occur because I only seem to experience it in Forgotten Hollow, and I've had the issue with multiple glass doors from various packs.
