Milky White night water is back

Recommended Posts

hey again everyone 

 

looking for yet more guidance 

 

i installed the trial version of ASN and after doing so my perfect night water has turned milky white again 

i have steve's DX10 Fixer 

and i tried deleting the water shaders and don't really see a difference

 

i'm missing something here ?

 

like i said i noticed it after in installed the ASN 

 

anyone have any ideas

did i miss something in steves fix? should i run his water fix again or FSwater 

yes i take my night water very seriously 

 

 

thanks everyone 

JHo

ok everyone here are some photos 

 

the first one is of the great salt lake, this is how i think it should look. this is taken at the same time with the same settings as the second one of lake mead 

 

however lake mead has the ugly white wash over. 

my textures are working fine. and i know this has something to do with the moon. however how come the water in the great salt lake looks awesome with normal reflections and no white wash,  while lake mead looks like crap 

 

i've tried everything i can think of

i've deleted my shader folders

i've reinstalled the textures from Rex

i've set my water settings to low in FSX and this just blacks it out 

i've installed the fswater config lite dx10 shaders 

 

i know its working cause the water in utah looks awesome and prior to my installing ASN lake mead at the same appearance 

and it bums me out cause las vegas is one of my favorite places to fly 

 

 

thanks in advance for any ideas

What are the altitudes that you're hovering at, JHo? Salt Lake looks as if taken from a couple of thousand feet perhaps, with Lake mead appearing to be taken for nine or ten thousand feet...

 

The only other reason (that I can think of) is that Google Earth shows Salt Lake as a greenish color, and Lake Mead as pretty much black. If the texture is based upon downloaded satellite images, and processed automatically - then something in that process could, I suppose - cause an issue like this, and deleting the Shaders will solve nothing - else how could either DX9 or 10 change it's water configuration on the fly? It doesn't happen. 

 

You said

 

 water in utah looks awesome and prior to my installing ASN lake mead at had? the same appearance

 

This sounds like a pretty good reason to me - but - again, no expert here - I don't think ASN installs any new textures - it loads what's there. Have you tried returning the (REX) textures back to default and then testing it? Did you return the (REX) textures to default before you ran FSWCLite? Do you have a backup of the default FSX Texture folder?

It's most probably the effect of the Moon or cloud layers, or both, and it has been there since FSX...

 

You didn't have it before because there was no Moon in the skies or it's iluminated area was minimal, last week for instance...

that's what i was thinking as well 

 

however 

when i load up Utah there is less reflection 

 

could it really be that different from one state to another ?

 

can someone post up a picture of lake Mead with yesterdays date so i can compare 

 

Thanks

I have personally seen the real San Francisco bay illuminated by a full moon on a clear night and its entire surface appeared 'milky white' at the elevated aspect from which I was viewing.  I'm actually quite impressed now that FSX gets this right, for I thought  "something is messed up here" when I first saw this same phenomenon in FSX.

really! 

 

that's kinda what i was thinking, and because ive seen the dreaded FSX show looking water. i know all my textures and whatnot are working cause the water looks good. it just has that covering glow. 

 

i just thought it weird that utah didnt have the same effect in the same amount

 

sucks being a perfectionist 

 

Thanks for the input

There is nothing at all unusual about these images.  Moon, star, and cloud reflections on the water is a normal FSX effect.

yea that's what i'm starting to think, however the second photo doesn't seem odd to you with the light colored water body ?

 

that's what is tripping me out 

 

Thanks for the input
