On my game I noticed the clearcoat/art starts to wrinkle around
those starposts as well. I didn't touch it yet. Looks like it will
start to flake off pretty soon.

It's not that easily noticable, so not the biggest issue for me.
However, I'd like to prevent the flaking from getting more serious.
Bigger starposts just do more damage, from what I read...
