Well... here it is then... I hope you can survive.

I was playing with the weather and I decided to put some random numbers at 5:40 AM, the period where I'm more of a "thinker" haha...

So, here it is just how powerful this thing is, and, an example on what you people can do for FUN :P
Oh, those wakes are just perfect, they dont float around like a certain sim I know, congratulations to the DEVS!

Oh remember, this is just random numbers I created to test if this works, so, here is the crude test for your enjoyment... hehe
Copy and paste this in ur weatherpresets.xml located in ur ss08 main folder, make the usual backup and just put before "</Weatherpresets>" and in <Preset id="7"> change the 7 to the next number available... (i dont know if it will work without any order, but if it doesnt, just do that :P)


PS: I hope this not a repeated topic

The first pic is a bit ugly because all the waves look the same.


BUT....


That last one :D Got to try this tonight for sure. Than take the arie visser and just see how it works out ;D

I think the frequenzy is a little bit to short. A longer wave is more realistic at 10 meter high I think....

Was looking at the file yesterday and was wondering if you could produce higher waves but it was too late to tinker with it. But now I know that it is possible. and I agree with the one above me, "widther" waves are more realistic.

hehehe I did this in a minute, I never actually thought much about frequency of the waves, because I was mostly interested in the amplitude,  but now that I have the time... I'll think more of a "realistic" set of waves hehe...

If you then reinstall the game to it's original state will there be support for that install? Or if you break it you break that support permenently?

Ok, no joy so far in decreasing the frequency of the waves, it doesn't matter if you change the frequency to any number, even negative... the spacing between them is the same, and they will still look "repeated" or in "rows" but you can decrease the "impact" on "prettiness" by increasing the fog to a suitable level, if someone comes up with anything tell me! I've ran out of ideas.

ps: I tried to put the next sequence Wave_frequency3 and so forth, but no diference either...plus, if u tinker with the weather inside the sim, it will disappear.

Dear Wout,

Modding is a part of Gamers culture, so please don´t be sad when anybody changes some waves in the script.
In other Games I have changed a lot more. In Mafia I changed the skins of the cars and the houses partly. In Gta1-3 and all parts of 3 (LC, VC, SA) I changed and modded completely all cars and make partly my own cars.
In the contract of every Game ist the warning don´t to  modify it, because they cannot give any warranty for modded games. But if my modded game not runs, I reinstall.
If you not sell your modified copy as your own Game, I think nobody has a problem with changing waves.

hope you understand my english

Hi,

I think it was not the intention of VSTEP to manipulate the game in a way, as it had been done by drakonwulf.
Of course each user could do with the copy what he wants, but please do not animate others with this stuff.

Wout had been explained that you will have no longer a warrenty on your copy, if you change parameters of the game.

Furthermore I feel that the forum should present the game with all the facts and features, as well as bugs which belongs to the game.

But imagine, you are new here in the forum and you read stuff like this. You would be animated to buy this game?

We should concentrate on the real features, problems and facts and discuss them constructive.

cheers

The only thing I do is tell you the consequences. We support additions to the game like missions, new boats or boat skins, scenery, extra functionality etcetera. However, we don't support modifications to the hardware. We can't forbid it either, that's why I've kept this topic open but with a warning. No support after tempering with the basics of the game.

I think you can edit that, its an xml file, not encrypted, and you can open it up using notepad. It is basically the same thing when you edit the environment in Strike fighters/Wings over Europe/Wings over Vietnam/First Eagles,. For example in the config.xml, there are some instructions for "manual" edit of the file. I havent edited anything in the core... just a basic uncrypted file

here it is the link for the movie if anyone is interested, btw, this sim is so well done, that no water will get inside of the cockpit/helm...So one more point for realism and competence for VSTEP dev team :P
Congratulations VSTEP!

Very impressive. The best looking wave physics I have ever seen.

Thank you, I did read that part but I'm not a lawyer so I did not know if it was permanent in the sense. Now I know!

If you set the </Wave_Amplitude1> to 8.0 you will get 16m high waves ;)
I prefer ti set it to about 5 ;) thats more realitic when it is bad weather :P

Yep thats pretty much what i did in the latest edit, which u can see in my video...
Unfortunately, I still cant figure out how to make more "space" between them, I tried to put any random number in frequency, negative and positive, but so far... I saw no difference, if theres a difference... I'm blind hahahaha
