things like the very good looking water (first TT teaser) and such, are those for the final version only?

The water shader was dropped from 4.0 because of the need to, ya know, actually RELEASE something Smile

Why not include it as Saberhawk had it written already?

Because the water shader as shown in the previews was not complete.

will it be in the final or maybe 4.1 ?

because from my point of view it would be the only visible thing what brings some feeling of a modern game...

It wasn't finished. It could only work on one map at a time (ever) and couldn't be cleanly turned off (which would break the game completely on older computers.)

i don't mind, it's just water
sure the water and the fire look neat but that's just it - they look neat
go look at the pretty water and fire while i kill your base, that's fine with me

It actually works with all point emitters, not just fire.

it would give renegade abit of renewal, which IMO it needs after this many years of the same things over and over again

not that it would make a difference in the outcome or anything, but hey

i mean justg imagine you could at first use it very good for the APB Gap Generator. Instead of this blue rotating shit, having this Reflective thing maybe without the water effect. so the enemy cant look through but sees himself on a mirror

I'll match your disagreement and raise the ante with a compiled shader package to be used with scripts 4.0 builds dated 20111106 and newer.

Unlikely. Having plane reflections (ie a lake) reflecting everything is one thing, but having an arbitrary shape (like the gap bubble) reflecting everything is another. If it can't be done in UDK, it certainly can't be done in Renegade.

It's the shader that goes with my screenshot hidden earlier in this thread. It doesn't work with the currently released TT versions, but will with the next and can be considered done.

But I think that once beta3 is released, putting it in data will be the way to get it.

Ah shame to hear that your shaders has limits that can't be overcome Sad

What about light rays like in this:

I mean if Oblivion Engine (lol) can do it with little plugins you'd think we could as well?

What if TT included the firstperson weaponmodels as thirdperson models and backmodels?

I think Blacky has already made them so it wouldn't be hard to implement them.

Don't think the first person models have LOD, and often used more draw calls. Last thing you want to do is make the base game have higher requirements right?
