I think everybody knows Urre´s and Zombie´s beautiful "DP Pretty Water
". Their latest version is V0.2.
My-Key made an update (V0.21) in august 2009.
From time to time I worked on it as well to get the best visuals, and causing the smallest FPS drop when using it.
Today I want to release V0.51 (this replaces several prior versions which I had released).
Updated to V0.55
This is the revision history:
Update 16/5/2008: Updated to use the latest shader parameters in DP, so the pack works again!
Update 12/8/2009: Now you can see differences between water, muddy water and slime
Update 15/6/2010: My-Key´s water looked a bit like plastic, without movement. So I mixed Urres Textures
with My-Keys Shader to get the best out of both: Water movement + different color between water,
muddy water and slime !
Update 16/7/2010: Modified the "water.shader" so that "slime0" and "slime1" look more green. Now its easier to separate it.
Update 24/10/2010: Modified textures "water0", "water1" and "water2" so that different colours are again easier to separate and less transparent
Update 10/07/2011: Modified texture "water0", corrected shader to be able to work with DarkPlaces versions from may/june 2011 and newer (but still works for older version too !).
Update 24/05/2012: Modified shader (mainly increased texture/wave scale, and increased transparency). Thank you Smith for the tip.
I made screenshots for you to compare V0.2 with my V0.51:
(as always: dynamic effects are hard to catch in screenshots)
I think the difference is good to see.
I hope you have fun with it just the way I have.
Special thanks and Credits of course to: Urre, Zombie and My-Key !!
To have less FPS drop use the cvar: "r_water_resolutionmultiplier"
(default is 0.5)
I highly recommend: "0.4" (or even less)
