    First attempt at real water!

    Post by Soarfly on Mon Jul 25, 2016 9:56 pm

    So I thought it was about time to give it a real go. My first attempt was the lakes and ditches surrounding Orlando airport, let me know how I did and if I could get some tips on improvements that would be great Smile

    The water effects seem good from the pictures and look typical of FSX. I wonder if there is some way of changing the colours and amount of light reflection to make it look more realistic? Thanks for sharing them. Cheers Mike.

    Nice work, Mark. If you are trying water masks, are you using Maurizio's 'photo water' colour (red)? I find that this makes the water surface look rather oceanic. The 'dirty rivers' mask colour (green) might be better for reservoirs? Not sure about the drinking quality, though!!

    Found this free software which manipulates the water effects in FSX, I'm sure you all know about it anyway. Here is the web site link http://www.strikingsoftware.com/fswc.shtml cheers Mike.
