Hey there Doom Universe peeps, here's the thing.

I am making Plutonia's first level in Doom3 for fun, because I want to try making a jungle-like environment.

The problem is, Plutonia has water. There are ONLY 2 ways I can make water, and both don't look complete, I have to choose method.

Method1 lets you see the ground, and warps the ground texture like water does:

Method2 has no ground, so it kinda can look like you're just standing on a huge wet mirror. This method, however, shows reflection, like water is supposed to:

NO, there is no way I know of to make water both transparent and see through, as this is no effect, it is three effects that make the water "effect."

I was thinking maybe I should use Method1 for shallow areas, and Method2 for really deep areas where the player would sink so you wouldn't need to see the ground.

That's what you should do. The first being for shallow places, and the second being deep. The first actually kinda looks like HL2's shallow water, so anyone who's played that should realize it's water without second guessing it.

I am doing so much for this, you guys have no idea how awesome it's gonna look :twisted:

Also, I don't think I'll remake the game, no way, this 1 level is gonna take a long time because I'm actually modelling stuff instead of just using brushes/vectors, in other words, I want it to look professional, or close.

I've also thought it might be cool to do a classic remix, 5 levels of each classic Doom! So 5 of Doom1, 5 of Doom2, 5 of Plutonia, and 5 of TNT!

Of course that's a long term plan, I think first I'll focus on getting this 1 map done :lol:

You have to see it in action, it doesn't show it in a still screenshot.

When it's in action, you see the water moving and making ripples like water does. The only thing that it's missing is reflection.

The second effect looks better in screenshot form, but worse in realtime, because the water isn't even deep so you should be able to see the ground, alot!
