Glad you sorted the shadow issue out. I never figured out what sorting bias was supposed to mean/do. Really coming along now. Start to look at the lighting maybe.

"sorting BIAS" is sorting big instability at shadowlevel...  ;D

Sorting bias  has influence on what renders first and last, afaik. So water areas I tend to set at -100000, to render them last (and hopefully not render water that is hidden anyway).

Interesting ... so does that avoid having to mask water areas? I tend to mask out areas that are hidden to speed up render time.
EDIT: and err where is sorting Bias anyway? and found it lol

It's in the sphere object or lake object, even the planet I think. I also mask, because that takes out all water underground, which IMO is even better.
