Amaizing water but need little hint... (PIC)

Recommended Posts

I just downloaded Ed Truthan Ocean Texture installed it and I have to say they are amaizing to the power of X. Sure deserve the gold medal.I installed them on random kind of, well what I would like to know what combination is the best to achive the best looking water you would find in Tropic, cuba bahamas etc... I kind of don't understand the instruction he wrote which would be the best combo for Tropic.I know I used MODERETE WINDS PACKAGE NE and NE SW SWELLS, but it says that one package gives you more of RAFFS effect or does it matter? I kind of don't get the way he wrote it.... :-roll I don't care which way the waves go really just so it looks best.ThanksAndy

I will try the strongest winds, I used the moderate for that same reason to be able to see the movement from higher altitude as I myself i am more of a Big Jet person and not small props. so when I fly high wouldn't see a whole lot.Andy

Also, make sure your water effect slider is all the way up to 'eleven'! (that would be a ten if you haven't seen the movie Spinal Tap)Boone

Hi Andy,There exists also a utility written by Johan de Vries which allows you to load the different wave strengths and directions and surface effects, based on parameters filled in in a form. The file is named: ofx10sa.ziphm
