I just finshed a scrap, saved the track went to play it back, and rather absent-mindedly clicked on the wrong button.

What I saw was this; notice the water and the frame-rate.

Now, without changing any settings, this is what I get when I play, and when I run a track I've created:

What is happening? what is being enabled in the stock tracks to get the effect of waves?


Help?

The difference is your hight. you have to be pretty low before that new watter kicks in.

It's not the height, it's the time.

The new "excellent" water in the top picture doesn't show up if the mission time is within a couple of hours of 12:00. Possibly it isn't implemented near midday because the new effetc is meant to represent shadows of waves from a lower elevation Sun.

Try it in the QMB.

RocketDog.

Not only has your water changed but I would be more concerned about your plane changing. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Once I got my setting the way I wanted it I went into the folder and made the config a read only file. This way I could not mess it up playing around with it. But as stated 12 noon is the water problem...but the plane, I have no idea.

Don't panic, it's a new skin disguise to confuse Johnny Sushi-Scoffer.
