I'm not exactly sure if someone already posted this... I can't seem to find it via the search function so oh well xD

 

What I'm trying to say is, do you guys think the current wave/wakes effect should be reworked?

I ran into a few early alpha gameplay and the wakes effect looked a lot more better than the one right now.

 

I heard the old one was only soft particle but the current one we're using is 3D wakes... 

But, what if they reworked the current effects used and make it a little bit more similar to the one back in early alpha?

 

Here are some screenshots...

Granted, the resolution on the effects texture(?) looks really low... I hope if it gets implemented in the future, it'll be a lot more high quality.

To me, the soft particles looked "cheap". It looks like someone used a preset brush in PS and painted along the surface. 3D waves looks better, but downside is its LOD kicks in very early so it doesn't render as detailed or at all at mid to long range.

But don't you think the 3D waves still feels a little... underwhelming? It'll be awesome if they can improve the 3D waves a little so it looks more detailed and realistic.
