There is such a wide range of water textures, that I find it tough to just say it looks like---------- :)So I'm also wondering about your settings, etc.A few examples, and there are still many other variations.

I found the water to look like ice unless I put it down to the lowest setting. I like the water sorta blue.

Stian:According to rumours, the water textures has nothing to do with DX9. some people with GF3 cards has no problems with the effect, so i guess there are some cards with problems, but not with DX issues.RegardsBj

Hi, "After what i know, people with videocard that don't support DirctX 9, "It's not that's, the only problem can occur with reflection are the gforce2 and the gforce4Mx, all others should works, there is some performance advantage from card that's supports DX9, like Nforce card but nothing more than that's.

I have yet to see water that looks anything like the #3 and 4 pics - the really light blue wavey version. Mine looks more or less like waterperfect from fs2002...I seriously hope that a GeForce 4 Ti4600 is able to show these otherwise allow me to feel cheated by screenshots posted :(

I have an NVIDA 440MX card. I didn't have any reflections for chrome surfaces or for water reflections even when I had oceanstx & oceansfx installed. I had to download gf4mxdsp and put it into my main FS 2002 root folder. This is a display.cfg file by Scott Jelinek, it turns on the reflections for the MX cards. I am interested to see if I will have to do this for FS2004.
