yeah it reduces fps slightly but still i get around 75-90 depending on how many custom planes people are using. 1280x resolution

Fb on perfect settings i get 30-40s in 1042x with this pos ge4 ti4200 with aa and af off I use to get 60-70with the ati radeon 9700 on 1280 with aa 4 and aa8 but the card burnt out bought it refurbished for 99 bucks and lasted a year. I definatly plan to buy a ati 9800 256 soon

No FR hit here. Looks nice from a distance. Swell action a little too rapid for my liking. Changes in sprites apparent up close. But will probably keep it installed as I am not a fan of the default water effects.

Yea, I've got that water installed right now. It's ok, it has some nice looks from time to time. I took this pic a day or two ago.

I noticed a fps increase on my rig. Looks spectacular until landing on it with floats. I am confident Mr. Lyons will figure out how to fix it though.

Well on my 9700 PRO there was no bigger fps hit then with the original water effects. And this look much better. Can look quite weird sometimes at low altitutes but overall they are much better and not at all disturbing as the old ones.
