Does this happen with the latest version of the mod? Last version should have fixed many of those issues. The 15 secs you are talking about is when the mod is creating the terrain transition ring I think. This is working as intended
Yeah I definitely have the latest version and the crashes are still happening - tried turning the terrain transition off, but this did not help.

I'd like to report another issue that I discovered while testing something unrelated.
It happens with only Distant Terrain 2.4.2 installed (everything enabled, as default) but not with plain (#139 or dev version of) DFU; I could trigger it with different saves, so I hope it can be easily reproduced.
If I go to Shrine of Q'Olwen, Dragontail Mountains (way down south), then to The Laughing Gnome Hostel, Glenumbra Moors (on NW coast, at the opposite side of the map), travel days count down to 0 and stay there. If I exit the travel map, it looks like I arrived at destination, but I only see the village while I open the options menu, otherwise I get a black screen with just the compass moving.
Log contains, usually several times:

Code: Select all

It doesn't happen if I travel directly to The Laughing Gnome Hostel.
(by the way mod options screen displays version 2.4.1, not 2.4.2)

yeah, mod 2.4.2 incorrectly shows 2.4.1 in the info text.

I will try to reproduce the problem

update: yes I can reproduce, I will take a look into it - thanks for reporting

update2: will be fixed in next version of the mod

an updated version 2.4.3 is available in the first post of this thread - it fixes the bug with near map border locations as well as the terrain transition ring issues when real grass mod is active

I am working on enhancing the ImprovedTerrainSampler in the mod to generate more interesting terrain in close range to player. It is less flat and similar to what Mountains and Hill mod does, it also takes climates into account - so more hills and spiky terrain nuances are generated in mountain regions for example.
Here are some screenshots of work in progress:
