Irregular Z-buffer

With a normal Z-buffer, a grid like approach is used, whereby every point on the grid refers to an integer value in the scene. This showcases itself in positioning limits in worlds that allow user building. If a world only allows centimetre by centimetre or meter by meter placement, it?s a good clue that the buffer is snapping to a grid: objects at the same distance will overlap and z-fight, guaranteed.

An irregular z-buffer is a bit more complex, but whilst the grid is still there, the irregular z-buffer allows real numbers to be used instead of integers, so that objects can be offset to the grid, and placed between nodes. Often, if two objects are sharing the same distance, the irregular buffer will offset one very slightly, so that no z-fighting can occur.
