Nice water! I think there is a reflection, but I can't tell.. if their isn't, it would be cool to have a littl bit reflective water. I like the fog!

I agree about the water. It looks tropical and reflective.
The fog adds lots of atmosphere and feeling to the whole scene.

Do you have a running demo of that level? I'd like to see it in action. See if those far away mountains are really part of the geometry or part of the skybox. ;)

at least theres no dispute about this one its definitly a computer grafix image of a pond with trees. and no u can't have a running demo casue flat polygons don't look that great when the cameras moving :)

He has a demo. being optimized. and other shots I have seen look phenominal as well.

Hope to be using this one myself.

Did you post a screen shot of the editor a while back? Looks fantastic by the way.

Nevermind, this is the image I was thinking of which I guess was submitted by someone different.

It looks nice.The water looks pretty cool. The setting has a 'Lion King' feel to it, at least to me. Nice and atmospheric. Now release that engine. And brush up on your english a lil =)
Keep up the nice work.

I like it. Looks a bit like Dagoth Moore, or whatever that demo is that comes with the GeForce. Kinda cartoony, very sureal, not at all an "attempt" to look real. One of my favorite things in art is good use of soft colors and good color contrasts.

Very nice. Ground and fog look particularly good. For scenery, I susupect that if you alpha blend the very edges of leaves to transparent (just one or two pixels, don't overdo it) they will integrate into the scene much better.

I can't say I've ever seen water that colour when there is a sky like that above it.

Might not be a problem though. I've seen this effect in too many engines to be really bothered by it any more.

Oh well
