Touching Objects Light Up

Title: Objects touching other light up

Summary: I believe something similar to this has been mentioned in a thread for logs, but no report. Basically it seems that when two separate entities touch/overlap, they are much lighter than normal. There is no z-fighting, however it occurs where I suspect z-fighting would have before it was fixed.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. One example is beds. Build multiple beds side by side

  2. Rotate around and notice how they glow where two beds touch. Oddly this didn’t seem to occur from all angles.

  3. Another is trees. Zoom out and survey the landscape and you should be able to spot two overlapping trees.

Expected Results: The items to touch but have no alteration than if there were no object touching it.

Actual Results: It lights up where the two objects overlap.

Notes: This may not be a bug, but if it’s deliberate design, it’s perhaps too obvious at the least.
