Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Good looking water (jungle water)

Hey guys, can someone direct me to a water shader that looks decent? I can't seem to get good looking water somehow. It doesn't need to be super physical accurate. For reference I'm looking for water that kind of looks like in this link. http://randomwallpapers.net/jungle-water-clear-waterfall-1920x1200-wallpaper36818.jpg

It can be muddy looking as well don't really mind.

Anyone knows something?

The best thing I would say would be to download the water plane examples that can be found by clicking on the learn tab of the launcher. Within them you can change color and ripple settings pretty easily using the supplied blueprints. The Lake water would be best unless it has to be translucent. If you want to add anything like mud or algae, I would blend the two materials and using something like perlin noise for the blend alpha.

There are some water shaders that you can copy or use as starting points in this sample project and a few others. There are also a lot of great tutorials on YouTube that will walk you through making water step by step if you want to do that.
