Default Map Preview

Map Preview Problem.png

hello folks,

i have a problem with the editor thats driving me crazy ... hoping to get help here

im working on a rather simple map, its a 4 player 4 corner fastest map, texture set is ulnar (xel naga world ship), so it is supposed to be a platform, the 'water' being just the transparent area looking into space.

the image i uploaded shows the problem: the cliffs are not clean but there is that rim where there is a cliff, but it is not transparent. now IN GAME all is well, there is platform and then a clean drop into space, the problem just concerns the MAP PREVIEW, where it shows those rims and its just really ugly (the preview should look like it does in the 'editor minimap' with that clear contrast between land and water)

when i first started working on the map, the cliffs all worked well, the problem just sort of suddenly appeared, so i figure i must have changed something and now i cannot get rid of them...

i am really hoping that this is a total noob question with a simple fix ... somebody help plz, would be much appreciated

are you using hide terrain? if i understand you correctly you're saying that those edges don't appear in game but they do on the mini map in-game.

That's a (harmless) bug that happens rather often, I don't know if there's anything you can do to prevent it from happening.

If you don't want to see them in the editor you can press "V" to activate the game view settings, that'll hide the weird edges.

EDIT: agh, too tired, didn't read the post properly. :3
Afaik the only way to get completely rid of them is to use the hide terrain cells tool to hide the terrain on the cliff edges.
