Realistic Effects in FSX

Recommended Posts

Over the past several years, there's been fantastic improvement (thanks to payware and freeware developers) towards realism in FSX when it comes to animation and visual rendering of clouds/weather, as well as overall water textures, and most definitely in sceneries and aircrafts of all types. But there is one visual/animation effect in FSX that has not received as much attention for improvement compared with other aspects of FSX, and that is the beach/surf wave animation. As far as I know, I've not come across any freeware or payware that shows significant, "jaw-dropping" beach/surf wave animation. I don't have the technical know-how, and therefore don't know how difficult it may be to create a realistic beach/surf animation with the today's computer technology and FSX limitations. Any thoughts anyone?

FSX with the DX10 fixer adds waves on the beaches. Am pretty sure the strength of the wind plays a role in the animation.

 

For proper surf - I leave the house and take a walk to the beach.  This is a flight sim after all.

There's waves on the beach in DX9 as well.
