Major graphics bug: strange ripple effect on the ground...

    late model 2013 iMac having same issue with same graphics bug here. Only happened after Clockwork City update. Periodic. I also get a weird small square graphic tag that seems attached to my cursor. If I move my cursor off game window and onto my computer desktop, it will temporarily go away but soon returns. Very annoying!
    Mac user here too, logged in after patch and found weird animation patterns on the ground, I assume would have normally looked like rain drops splashing etc.
    Might be a issue related to Mac only. Probably. Fingers and toes crossed it gets sorted. Time to recover my gaming pc I'd 'lent' to my daughter some time ago.

    Definitely appears to be connected to the animation of rain fall. The ground resembles a 1970's disco dance floor! Saturday night fever is live and kicking in Tamriel. Currently in Cyrodiil, was fine until it began to rain, inside a tower it's fine, looking out... the ground surface is as previously described. Horrible.

    Has there been any word on when this will be fixed? It gives me a headache between this and my neighbor putting in a pool (jackhammer goes all day), I can’t hardly play ESO.

    Lets hope this gets fixed with todays patch.

    Why no one at ZOS can be bothered to post a response to, or even just acknowledge, this major issue clearly affecting significant numbers of players is beyond me :(

    This thread was posted and populated in advance of the bug-report thread and is it seriously too much trouble for ZOS to acknowledge and reassure their player base here ? c'mon.

    Probably because we are about less than 5% of the player base ._.

    Did this get fixed with today's patch? It's really disorienting to do basically anything outside when it's raining.

    Reporting back post patch 13th November to say sadly the problem is still present. Patch didn't fix this ongoing issue.
    Disco Rain November continues.

    Has ZOS even acknowledged the reports of this issue? Have they even made a statement to the effect of "We're aware of the issue, and we're working on it"? I'd be happy if they'd even do that much. It's the Complete Radio Silence on the issue that's so bothersome.

    Wait, this seriously has not been fixed yet?

    Should we be writing direct e-mails for the bugs? Is not reporting them in this forum sufficient?

    I've reported via the in-game form and they have not so much as acknowledged my input other than the auto reply. I finally fixed it myself:

    Either use Votan's Adaptive Settings use Votan's Advanced Settings. Under the section Graphics toggle Rain Wetness to Off.

    - OR -

    In the UserSettings.txt file - SET RAIN_WETNESS "0"

    Look I get this fix. Basically it is "Turn the rain splashes off". I just don't understand why it isn't fixed yet. One of the things I love about this game is how good it looks.

    I don't want to hobble the graphics as a work around to an obvious bug/glitch, I just want the bug fixed.

    I'm glad there's a work around (in case it got very bad or strained my eyes... luckily it dosen't, it just looks goofy and obnoxious) but ZoS should still (and i'm sure will) actually patch this out, even if it's effecting a minority of their player base.

    I am having this issue on my iMac as well. It's disorienting and bit nauseating - makes it very hard to play, and way less enjoyable.. I will try the Votan advanced settings addon. Thanks for the tip guys.

    Anyone have an update on this - it appears to have dropped off of the radar.

    @ZOS_GinaBruno has this been logged as an issue - can't see anything on it on the Dev Tracker?

    Please fix..... it's blimmin' irritating.

    Add me and my daughter to the list.

    She tried to play for a bit (it doesn't seem to affect gameplay) but had to quit after a bit because it made her nauseous.

    Yeah it actually was giving a serious eyestrain/headache as well. I downloaded the mod mentioned above and I turned off water effects.

    But I really like the water effects, I love how this game looks! It annoys me that this problem has not been even acknowledged yet.
