Sandstorm Issue

Online official

After every login, a sandstorm appears after a minute or two; however, there is no initial streaks that indicate a sandstorm is coming, and the graphics of the sandstorm look off, like it’s still sunny (or whatever the weather is at that time) and the sandstorm is superimposed on normal weather making it look very out of place. There is also no sandstorm damaging effect. It’s almost like the Sandstorm isn’t actually on the server; however, it is clearly happening for the client.

Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. The more details you provide us with the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:

  1. Login (Near Sepermeru)
  2. Do things for about a minute
  3. Watch screen go dark with a weird ghost sandstorm come through
  4. Log out
  5. Log back in
  6. Do things for about a minute
  7. Watch another ghost sandstorm come through

I have the same issue, just like the way Disco7 mentioned.

I play only on official servers without any mod.

  1. every time i loging in or reloging (does not really matter where i am, it happens on everyvhere on the map where i can get the real sandstorm effect like on desert, jungle or starter area)
  2. does not matter what im doing (i tested: running, climbing, building, fighting, swimming, riding etc.)
  3. on the screen i see the blure effect of the sandstorm and the ghost of the storm but i still can see quite far.
    4-6 I tried to log out and back in a lot of times. I tried to log into other servers but still have the bug on those. I even tried to check file intergrity on steam.
    7 It seems to me the real sandstorm and the effect works with different timing/delay or whatever
