Default Waves too big

Is it just me or seem the waves too big? I was flying at about 150 metres high and the freighters look like toy ships on a pond.

Looking over my right wing to the sea I could believe that I'm just 20 metres high.

Don't get me wrong, I really like the look of the waves very much, it's looking really fantastic. I just think that the waves texture has to be scaled down about 5 times smaller to make the look perfect.

What dou you think folks?

Just as an example I've added some images wich should pretty much represent the same weather/wave conditions wich we have in CloD atm. See the difference between the scale of the waves compared to the ship's size:

Watch the following experiment:

For better understanding what I mean I did a quick photoshopping. As I'm not able to scale the wave's texture down properly I've pasted a ship into the image and scaled it up so that its size perfectly fits to the size of the waves - at least in my eyes.

Note the difference sizes of the pasted ship compared to the original ingame ship. It's about 5 times bigger.

I really would like to hear your opinions.

I wish the waves were bigger, I want to see them smash down on the beaches of Dover

I am not sure if that's the waves size but it may be the answer to the question that I have from beginning of this game: why if I am low over the water I have a feeling that I am kind of too high and if I am right over the water like 5-10 meters I can't get rid of that feeling?

For some reason perception of flying right over water was much better in 46 even if it was kind of flat...

cheesehawk beat me to it:


Surf's up.


I'd wait till the game can run smoothly on a monster machine w/out the issue's we're having before worrying about the surf.

I also think that waves are too big, and commented about that several times. I also think waves move too fast.

I sort of go the other way, I spend a good deal of my time in a 110 at deck height of the freighters, I don't know if it is due to the representation of speed, but to me there needs to be more of a swell running! Apart from the visual representation of water movement horizontally, there seems to be no rise and fall to it! This could very well just be due to the limitations of our hardware and if so fair enough!

Cheers
Craig

The waves are too big. The waves, especially along the beach, look much better in IL-2 Classic.
