I modified the daytime water environment files that affect the appearance of water when using the 1X mid and 1X high settings, as I find the defaults result in a too bright and intense blue water colour. These will tone it down to what I feel is a more realistic shade. These will not alter the effects when using 2X water settings, but if you find your system will not handle the 2X settings or you prefer the 1X settings, you may prefer these.

Please backup the env_highnoon.bmp, env_lowsun.bmp, and env_midsun.bmp files located in your FSX\Scenery\World\Texture folder in case you wish to revert back to the defaults.

To install just copy the files in the Modified 1X Water Environment folder into your FSX\Scenery\World\Texture folder and overwrite.
