    Hey guys,
    I am trying to make a map with a displaced path. It has small hills around it, then a lower portion that makes the trail for people to walk on. the only problem is that Im getting what looks like a shadow in that path. It is darker than a shadow and more pixelated though. Below is a picture of the problem. Anyone know why that is happening and how I can fix it?
    Thanks and God Bless,
    ArK

    Do you, by any chance, have a nodraw brush visible though the displacement? by this I mean did you sink those dark bits into the nodraw brush sealing the world behind it?

    damn, I was hoping it was a sign from the aliens, it sure looked like one.
