Realistic Flowing Water

This is a reskin of the water texture.

It is a realistic 350x350 flowing water texture. If you complain about the size, let me note that there is no way you can use this in Multiplayer maps, as the water texture consists of 45 separate files. It gives you pretty neat quality even when you zoom in.

To use, import all files in your map, and change the path to:

ReplaceableTextures/Water/Water00.blp
ReplaceableTextures/Water/Water01.blp
ReplaceableTextures/Water/Water02.blp
...
ReplaceableTextures/Water/Water43.blp
ReplaceableTextures/Water/Water44.blp

I'm sure you'll figure it out.

Works on almost all tilesets, except for Outland (obviously) - it screws up the void there. I'd recommend using Icecrown, Dungeon, Black Citadel and Barrens (especially Barrens!), as the game renders the texture much more desaturated and it can be tinted easily.

Shown above is the Cityscape render without any tinting, and a version with slight tinting.

I'd most likely create a non-flowing version, as it currently looks funny and odd when the water is flowing from the shore inwards. Won't happen soon, though, cause I have more work to do - even here, for the Hive projects.

Made with Genetica.

You can redistribute, modify or change this texture any way you like, but I'd be happy if you leave credits for the original work.

PS: I cannot find a way to upload this as a pack. It seems that I must first upload the resources one by one, in order to get them approved. However, I do believe that nobody wants the skin section flooded with 45 similar 350x350 water textures.

Therefore, I upload this as a map, and delete the pack resource I've created earlier. I'd still prefer this to be uploaded as a pack, or as a skin archive (also impossible at the moment).

    Impressive result!
    As you said a non-flowing version would be better.
    4/5

    This is a reskin of the water model, so I can't post it as a model.

    As for a skin - it is not possible to upload a zip archive in the skins section. And I guess nobody wants to see it flooded with 45 350x350 similar textures.

    I tried as a pack, but it doesn't work as well.

    It looks more like quick silver than like water. Water should be blue.

    I left it that way intentionally so that it could be easily tinted. Also, try different tilesets, water is rendered in different ways.

    Very nice and useful.
    Although, might be nitpicking, but too bad it doesn't turn green for the Felwood tileset or red for the Dungeon one. Otherwise, it's pretty kickass.

    As much as i would love to like this, i have to agree with Animalpower - even with color tinting there is something about the texture that makes it look very metallic.
    Good job at making it so fluent and looping though, did you use some kind of generator for this?

    This is simply amazing! This is very useful in high quality maps. I too have done the same thing, but my texture is from frozen throne main menu ;) +rep
