Howdy y'all! Happy new year!
Okay, now to get on track here. On Mareth last night, I was riding around in my crusader when someone managed to spot out the marder for me just outside the mareth flag. So I get into position and take a peek.... but there's nothing there! So I back up, then try again. And low and behold, the nice, juicy target that is the marder, but WAIT! I can see why I didn't see it now! The texture of the road overlapped the tank! So at first, I was like KILL IT! Then my brain light flickered for a bit, as it never really comes on. It said "take a screenie!", so I did, and low and behold, the road marder.
I know, it's hard to see, but the other view wasn't much better :P
it's a super secret new german camouflage tactic :P
old bug, possibly engine limitation

Don't worried about it, BF2 engine was build using MS-DOS...
The road textures seem to be difficult to be implemented correctly.
this seems new in 2.15 right ? i didnt notice this before
No it's not new. It's happened at Toujane more often, that one road leading into it, before the patch :P Though can't say I've seen it yet since the new patch, but im sure its there. I think it may happen at the top of the hill to the west of Miteriya ridge in el al. I've seen it happen there, making it hard to see tanks, but I can only recall one time.
so, where should i aim at? a little bit above the tank or just normal?
Normal, it's just the road graphic overlapping the vehicle :P The perspective and dimensions remain the same.
yup, this was in 2.15.
And aim normally, the tank hasn't sank into the ground.... it's only a Mirage :P
