I'm not sure but I think this is an issue...

The fog no longer moves with the player.. I will let the video demonstrate the problem..

In 4.1 (and below), fog is handled by saying "Hey Direct3D9, fog goes from X to Y distance and is this color". There is no control for a "fog location", it's *always* based off distance to the viewer.

However, I do remember adding in a "floor" to the skybox. You may be seeing that instead if the terrain is becoming transparent. It's always the fog color.

I think what your seeing is caused by the size of the vertices in your terrain, try increasing the poly count and see if it goes away, in Renegade the fog is shaded across polies depending on your distance from the center of them, so if the center of the poly below you is greater than the start distance of the fog away from you it will get the fog shader applied (Probably actually done by the edges of each poly but w/e).

Thank god, no more stupid sky color below you were the sky box ends.

Yeah it most likely the way the polys where extended that made the fog react that way

Yep that'd be it, needs more polys on that final chuck (if you want to do it the lazy way use the mesh select modifier, and apply tessellation to that big block with a 0.0 tension, will waste more polys than doing it by hand however).
