Please dont implement this in ESF.
Sure its good. But itll jack up the requirements. A lot of peopl still play in software mode, you know.

That would completely ruin ESF. I get 23 FPS in Mechmod, in ESF I get 200+. Long story short, gameplay > eyecandy

It was a testbed type thing. As a former Beta-Tester of MM back in the day, I knew it was pushing the engine to the limit. I forget exactly WHY they did it...

I forget alot of things.

Can't the ESF team implant that and set the high quality water as an option? With "Low Quality" as default? Sorry, but I just love this water.. My FPS was quite normal when I played on that map with that high quality water.

Listen if my ancient god forbidden card would run it normal.........(geforce 4 MX)
Then i see no problem in implementing it in ESF as an option XP

I have also expressed interest in this water also awhile ago, And agree there should be an option to enable it.
And there should also be a bloom effect also, I think Geforce 2's and 4's are capable of that.

Yea, it was a cool mod to beta test :p. For a brief time it even had more users idling in its chat channel than ESF.

The guy who implemented that water is named Jason. Needless to say, he's not on the ESF team.

With that being said, I'd rather them do something that actually matters, like melee. Yeah, Mechmod looked beautiful, but there's a reason no one plays it - It's gameplay is lacking. Let's not do that to ESF....

I honestly don't understand what that has to do with ESF.. ESF already has a good game play, and will also have a good game play when v1.3 gets finished. I highly doubt this feature would effect that.

I would love to see this as an option. I wouldn't mind if this gets added to the game as long as it doesn't take the team too much work to implement it.

You could try to be more wrong, but I don't think you'd succeed.

I don't see the harm in having crazy-looking water as an option, but what would be the point? How many maps do we have with tons of water? Once people get over the initial shock of seeing uber water, it isn't even going to matter. It's just going to be there, killing everyone's fps. Again, I don't have a problem with it being an option, but I don't see the point in using the time, energy and resources it would require to add it.

Sorry to crush your hope and dreams, but not happening :-( In mechmod Jason was our dedicated graphics coder (he of course did many other things, but he mainly did the graphical stuff). It worked out pretty well since I did most of the main server side programming, and he worked out a lot of the client side effects. Unfortunetely, ESF is a bit more complex of a game, and we don't have such a luxury (or a programmer who loves working with shaders).
