Just checked and I have animated waves till above 11.000ft  without having edited any files.

( did not have the time to test any higher )

Haven't had time to install the update yet, but what water settings are required to have less static water at altitude? Hopefully not "ultra" because this is way too hard on the frames when flying tubeliners.

On my pc I only have animated water when set to Ultra...

 

You can try both 32 bit and DXT1 water textures and see if it helps ( The texture size is 1024 )

In Rex Essential + OD you can choose the water texture resolution : 1024 / 512 / 256

 

I am wondering what looks better : 32 bit 512 or  DXT1 1024 ?

Water's still frozen on my system (v2.3).  I tried 32-bit and DXT1.  Water is set to Ultra.

Did you reinstall a wave animation set after installing SP2?

Yes...I installed water textures and animations.  Tried various combinations of things and changed various settings in P3D.  Still frozen.

Don't forget to delete the shader file. I believe that is necesssary.

Does that fix the detached water reflections in Prepar3D 2.4?

 

Afaik this is a P3D bug, but they mush have done something for sure. This update made wonders at least for my water reflections!

Last thing I read on the matter in the Prepar3D forums is that the detached reflections only occured with REX4 water textures. Are the reflections fine for you now?

If you install water animations again, and delete the shaders folder, the reflections are fine again. At least that's what I did.

Yes, after updating to SP2 and installing new textures, water reflections seems back to normal.

 

Edit: Yes, like figgios, updated animations and deleted shaders too.

Tried that.  Still frozen in 2.3.  Maybe it's just a 2.3 issue.

If I understood it right I believe you HAVE to have v2.4 in order to get the fix.  The expect people to have the latest and great running (whether the latest and greatest is good or not).   This is what I am guessing based upon the update options from within REX itself.   I updated to SP2 via the Unpdater in the program and when it was done there was a new menu option that said Add Waves Animation for v2.4+    Maybe that is it?

Could be.  I'm in no rush.  Maybe when 2.5 comes out and the new Orbx Central.  A lot of work maintaining 2 sims.
