Default Water reflections

November 7th, 2006, 14:11
I could be mis-remembering, but didn't the a movie and preview screenshots of Gothic 3 show some fantastic looking water with reflections?

In game I currently have transparent water, with an animated ripple image, and underwater refractions. But there's no reflections of anything above the water.

Is there a way of enabling reflections anywhere?

EDIT: for example this screenshot http://worldofgothic.de/screenshots/…3/screen07.jpg looks nothing like my game

I don't see a setting in any ini file, odd.

probably had to be removed because of technical difficulty or no time to properly implement it.
My Current System:

Intel Centrino Duo (2x 1.66 Ghz)
1 GB System Memory
512 MB GeForce Go 7400 (256 MB Dedicated, 256 MB Shared)

Water reflections were left out because of performance and texture memory issues.

Thatīs not a screenshot, itīs a rendered image to illustrate what the developers wanted to achieve at that time. Looks like they couldnīt implement everything.
