For some reason the list that was being shown under textures was the “keywords search”  list.  The store page is showing the correct listing only half the time, when I’ve visited the page. 

http://www.daz3d.com/shop/breaking-waves

The What’s Included tab should read and show this.  (image below)

And as with everyone of my products so far,  it is POSER and DAZ STUDIO compatible.  The morph was built first in Poser so it works there for sure.

The Breaking Waves also works as a ground prop that can generate an interesting visual, when rendered with a ground texture instead of water.

I too was taken in by the listing of ‘textures’, and have been frantically searching for them in my download….well! ..this explains why I haven’t found them…It’s a pity it doesn’t come with more preset textures; and perhaps explanation of how best to use the ‘light apron’, and ‘darkdepths’ to alter the looks of the water ...otherwise it’s a nice product!

As I had mentioned in another thread,  that list is actually the “keywords search” list.  How it got mixed up under what’s included is a big mystery. But since I do believe the buck stops here,  I do apologize for any confusion.  The Breaking waves prop is UV mapped and will accept any texture or ds shader or ps material.  The hovertank image above is using the old waterhole ground texture tiled for example.

Thanks.

And I could see that the error was not your fault.

I can’t wait for the Fisty & Marieah stone shaders to come out. I see these waves and can’t help but imagine some alien planets with landscapes/seas of opal, etc. Crystalline landscapes like in Alan D. Foster’s book “Sentenced to Prism”.

Ah yes, this is going to be a fun summer!

Cheers

...a few months ago I did the opposite where i applied a seawater surface map to Rolling Plains in the pic below.  Breaking Waves would have made things a lot simpler if it was out back then.


Wishlisted for now until the store is more stable.

...it’s five minutes to midnight…

I’d rather have a blue sky above me than a blue screen in front of me.

I am going to be providing a small update for Breaking Waves.  This is an example of the updated DS mats that will be available in your accounts soon.  The update will also include an ambiance balanced lightset to enhance the look of the waves.

Could you let us know in this forum when the DAZ materials have been put in our downloads? Sometimes I don’t see things like that. I hope it is soon as I am unhappy with the product as is - I’ve tried a lot of water materials and they don’t look too good, partly because the waves loose their whitecaps. Anyway I will return it in the 30-day period if there are no DS materials as it is kind of useless to me otherwise. confused

There are updated installers available now. Reset your downloads in Itemized order history.  The textures have also been updated so both DS and Poser (PS) users should get their respective update 1.1 .  In DS, the DS mats and the ambiance balanced lightset for DS work best when the waves model mesh is converted to Sub-D.
