water texture

Recommended Posts

In due time hopefully I can share this scenery but I need your suggestions as to the acceptable or appropriate water texture/color for a scenery. Here some pix of Hongkong and I marked the color of the water "A", "B", & "C". Your suggestions will be appreciated.Chris Salviejorpll

>>But, Michael, is this original Fly Scenery? Nope. FS2002. But not its original water - this is a replacement water texture developed for the whole world by an oceanographer from the University of Hawaii. The tropics look fantastic.Michael J.

I discovered that making the 'default' jet black water mask for Fly!2 produces water that,whilst it varies with 'lighting conditions', is rather bland. Try making the water mask a mid-gray color and putting some 'texture' into it so that it looks more realistic and 'alive'. Alas you have to put it into Fly! each time to see the results but that can be done without slicing the whole scenery. The 'light reflection effects' only work with 'Water Effects' menu selected and 'High Detail Textures' ticked on startup of course.DaveT
