Also the new grass is looking very good but impossible to place because of the low lod. The grass disappears at a few meters!
This bit is actually done intentional.
The grass looks so good because it's mesh based.
Downside of this approach is fillrate on your GPU.
It lods out almost instantaneous so you can use it for rendered footage,
have tons and tons of it, and not be limited by bad FPS in buildmode.
As for placing it, takes a bit of fiddling about before you get the hang of it
and I'm sure this will get improved in a future update
It shouldn't dissapaer altogether though.
See the attached screen for the best placing method.
Hope this helps.
