Syria preview

Recommended Posts

@MAESTR0 Is Ugra planning to improvethe look of water in Syria? As shown by many users in this thread (as well as the bug threads in the bug sectio, and wishlist) the current implementation of water does not do the map justice, and makes the otherwise really well crafted terrain look very unrealistic.
It would be very reassuring to hear that Ugra is planning to change the water shaders so rivers/lakes are no longer filled with crystal clear water, where we can always see the ground texture beneath the water and also causing artefacts such as the water changing colour from blue to brown when flying over a body of water.
Thank you for reading and hope the team will work on improving this, it would really pull the map together having this adressed given the many areas of water features on the map, including the Sea of Galilee, the Mediterrainian coast, and the Euphrates river, among many smaller bodies of water.

@MAESTR0I note you keep posting and updating however please could you answer the questions that people are posting about the water and the concerns people have raised.  It's good to post content but Ugra do need to start answering questions on this vital topic.

 

It is a genuine issue with the map - i have posted a topic on this August last year and awaiting a plan of action?

The bug section has some reports. This one will give you an idea.

 

Ah right. Can't say this bothers me as much. Would be nice to have it fixed of course. However huge fps drops over populated areas do bother me.

Hello ,

you are busy posting pictures from Cyprus. Thanks for that .
Is currently being worked on the mainland at all. For example, there is still a lot missing in the east or south.?

Though, I don't want to be "that guy", but can you give us an ETA on a bug fix for the million Normandy 1944 billboards and all the corrupted helipads?

  This map will surely be incredible, thank you very much for the hard work, I imagine that Cyprus is getting a lot of attention, but I wanted to ask about a couple of important places that are still missing such as Afrin and Kobani, for now there is nothing in those places, will they be added in the new update? I hope so, as they have been very relevant during the past years.
  It would also be incredible some more details in the city of Raqqa to make it more similar to the real one, in general give more love from Raqqa to Kobani, @MAESTR0 it would be great if you inform us if these places will be added or not (so as not to get my hopes up) thank you very much for all.

I‘ve never seen a direct answer to proposed issues - at least not in this thread.

I guess we‘ll have to wait for the next releases and release notes.

The water transparency is a limitation of the engine currently which was touched on in another thread by an ED member.  I have not seen a direct comment that its fixed in the marianas, but the screenshots they are posting indicate that it either is fixed or they are purposefully positioned to avoid the issue.

It is not an issue with the engine though, I don't understand why this incorrect information gets repeated so much.

See here for comparison to Caucasus, where this issue is not present: 

 

 

This issue is unique to Syria, and does not happen on other maps including Caucasus and PG. It is not an engine limitation.

it happens in PG so not sure what you're referring to there. I cant say I fly Caucaus enough to say for certain, but that is a much older map so would expect there is far more chance behaves differently.  As mentioned in several other forums, the issue relates to transparency and the lack of sediment modelling.

This is not correct. Please watch and compare the following two video demonstrations, one on PG and one on Syria, clearly showing this issue is ONLY present on Syria. Please stop the misinformation with "it's an engine issue etc".

Persian Gulf: No water transparency issue:

 

 

Syria: Water transparency issue present:
