Recommended Posts

BTW trying to get some photoshop experience I tried to make my own water texture..It`s pretty easy make a texture and replace more_anim 1,2,3,4,5,6,7..Only problem is that I don`t have the slightest clue of how to animate it  sad_o.gif ..Guess this is a problem with my phtoshop skill..But I like the result..Here are some ingame pics:

To give you an idea of what Blackdog's never-publicly released Hi Water addon looks like, here's a pic taken in the CSLA campaign's starting cutscenes, with Kegetys' Hi Sky and BlackDog's Hi Water addons installed.

IMO, this color variation goes perfectly with Llaumas Hi Res Sky.

(For forum posting purposes, the above pic's resolution has been drastically reduced from the original JPG file's in order to conform with forum rules).

mmm...i use either Kegs HiSky or this beautiful new Llauma's sky (i like variety biggrin_o.gif ) but i always use Wilco's retextured water, and it looks very similar to that deep blue u got there Avon, but those pics by quiKsanD are amazing for tropical islands, great work there!

OFP just cycles those textures in the following order:

1,2,3,4,5,6,7,6,5,4,3,2

with 1 and 7 appearing for the longest period of time. Its not a great animation cycle for water sad_o.gif

Well I`ll stop with this post since I wouldn`t want to hi-jack this thread that about LLauma wonderfull work..But guys I`m glad you like it..The idea was to fit with the tropical islands,so I`m happy you noticed it..I could realese a BETA now but it would be useless as it looks pretty dull to look at the static water.

@Leone thanx for your tip.After I looked at the old textures in Texview I suspected that they were cycling,all I have to do is make a texture in a different position and I`m ready for realese..Hope it will be soon...

hi all,

i over heard, or is that over read.... the thing about the water,

its very easy to change the color,

open moreanim1 for example, (after you change it to a tga)  

change the Hue in photoshop  to whatever color you like best,

( edit - oops, to do that, you go to image/hue-saturation, and move the sliders, the hue is to change the actuall color, and the saturation is how you controll how vibrant the color is, everything in OFP has quite low saturation, so best to stay away from too high, or vibrant tones... i even think that one of blackdogs is a little too saturated - maybe why it was "unreleased"

crazy_o.gif no offence intended of course, much respect, he was prolly one of the first ones to figure it out)

then just save.

Do that to all 7 of the more_anim files.

PM me if it doesnt make sence, i plan to include like 4-5 different water colors in our sky pack, so the user can just choose which ones they want to put in (if any) before they run the sky install.

Later

Drow

This will definitely be in use all the time it can be, so what I was looking for. Especially the dark blue sky, with only a few clouds here and there. Could be even darker. But I hope you will do something about the horizon, it's seriously not eyecandy when flying and having a short VD. The clouds, well what can I say, superior to certain water painted ones wink_o.gif

Also the rain textures hinder the view too much, I've always though that these things would create an unfair advantage to someone else, but now it's friggin gona make me a blind goose. The opposite is ofcourse those who edit the nvg optics and such, I don't know if they gain anything else than a rejection from equalmod servers? I sure wouldn't let even one pass...

And lastly, there's this expression of the moment after sunset, roughly translated "blue moment". I can't remember if it happens only at a certain time of year, but it casts a blue hue to all. Imagine the rain without the rain but with that blue transparency, that's the moment. But instead it's just the red sunshine faded to black in OFP. The red sunset just seems so dreamy, happening each time, always so friggin beautiful... Rarely that good weather to make it possible here ever tounge_o.gif

I do get an error ingame. I have w2k, wasn't that supposed to work? The error says I'm missing 'plot_rust_cihlsloup.p3d (magic)', a white brick fence corner... I can however find it ingame, so perhaps it's no biggie.

Blackdog's spirit said "use Wilco's".

I confirmed this message with my Ouija Board. biggrin_o.gif

Will a new version be coming out this week?

Can we expect any new enhancements, other than making the installer Win98 compatible?

im jsut wondering where either or not the graphics engine works in such a way that as soon as something is below the water it no longer exists, ie blowing up a boat thats 20 feet high in ten feet of water and then watching it compeletly disappear rock.gif

It doesn't.

Some Russian team supposedly came up with a library that allowed for pixel shaded water, though. Haven't heard anything about it in months.

that was the orcs team mate there not going to release it as they supposedly sold the tech behind it, the thing im wondering is how they managed to implelment pixel shaders as you would need to mod the source-code for that and as we all know bis anit for releaseing it rock.gif

Looks fantastic by now. Still it´s beta so not representing final quality.
