View Full Version : WAC / GWX water

Hey everyone, I just have a little question regarding the water density and color in WAC and GWX. First of all, I have not tryed WAC yet, I think I will download it tonight and give it a try, BUT I do have a question or two.

Let me just say that I love this game, and not just for the realism factor. I love subs in general (mom never could figure that one out heh) I don't know... Subs and trains for some reason... go figure http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Anyway I'm getting off topic again... The Only thing I did not really like in GWX was the water. Underwater to be exact, I loved looking at the U-boat when I would dive, and I loved watching the depth charges falling from above at me. I liked the idea that I could turn the game into my own personal movie almost. But with GWX I cannot see anything Underwater, its so dark that at night there is no point in looking at the sub from external view underwater.

Now before I get blasted about that being realistic and how you could not see anything underwater at night IRL. I agree, but I fell in love with the look of the original game.

So, I guess my question is..... Does WAC have the same DARK water? and if so is there anyway to change this back to the look of the original game?

I need my eye candy http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
Thanks in advance everyone!
Good Hunting to you!

Water clarity in GWX actually depends on lighting and weather conditions above the waves, as well as water depth. During a storm or on a very dark night it will be hard to see anything, at other times it will be more like stock.
If you are using SH3 Commander, there is a water quality setting under options.

And to answer the question, yes, WAC does have dark water. I liked the mod, but couldn't run it unfortunately.... But yes, Commander can change water clarity back to "normal"

Here is another mod to satisfy your craving for eye candy Sober's 3D Waves (http://files.filefront.com/Sobers+3D+waveszip/;6541349;;/fileinfo.html) , made for GWX, but also compatible with WAC.
