Hi, the ground plane in this world file appears to be not visible:

   <ambient>0.5 0.5 0.5 0.5</ambient>

<!-- ground plane -->
   <model:physical name="gplane">
      <xyz>0 0 0</xyz>    
      <rpy>0 0 0</rpy>

      <body:plane name="plane">
         <geom:plane name="plane">
            <normal>0 0 1</normal>
            <size>100 100</size>
            <segments>10 10</segments>
            <uvTile>100 100</uvTile>

Might this be because it is transparant? How can this be resolved?

I'm using version 1.0.2. How do I set the material correct? Is GreyGrid the correct material name? Because if I change it from Gray to Grey the problem is still present...

Is that version 1.0.2 as reported by ROS? The string "Gazebo/GrayGrid" refers to a material script in a file called gazebo.material (or Gazebo.material depending on your version). This file should exist in your GAZEBO_RESOURCE_PATH. You can also check ~/.gazebo/orgre.log for errors.

Indeed GrayGrid or GreyGrid was not present in the Gazebo.material file. I finally solved by setting it to Grey and by defining the material as visual:

It looks like your using a world file that dates from pre-gazebo 1.0. Are you also using a version of gazebo from that era?

If so, I would make sure the GreyGrid material is correct.
