I posted the image on my website at . I should have tried magnifying the image, unfortunately, I just thought of that now, and I at home away from my laptop.

It looks like that this is the border of the textures that form the landscape. If it doesn't appear when you switch to a single-texture landscape, for example "Mars", then this most certainly is the case.

You can try updating your graphics card's driver to the latest version available - either on its manufacturer's website, or on your laptop's manufacturer's website.

What is your graphics card model?

Hi Bogdan,

I updated the drivers as you suggested thus; it works fine now. My laptop is using the Intel processor (sigh) to provide the graphics. But again, your suggestion did the trick -- thank you!
