Description

COOP 08 Payback GPS COORDS 016013-017013

Reproduce:
•set Options->Video Options->Advanced->Shadows detail:->Very High
•go to Multiplayer->New->Create Game->OK-Shapur->COOP 08 Payback->Resume->OK
•move few meters southwest from start location and move your men with you (to get other shadows too than just yourself)

Observe:
See shadows showing incorrectly in the fence located between GPS COORDS 016013-017013 even when you are not even close and shadows are not touching ground.

Expected:
Even when sun is low and behind your back, this is not how shadows are showing.

hard to tell if it's engine or dlc content, for now upcoming version

Easy workaround might be to set sun high to the sky and not to that kind of sunset position or remove visible sun completely.

When you try Shapur map (same map that is used in this mission) and go to the same position when playing through editor there is no sun at all and because of that these buggy shadows will not exist.
