Zinertek is pleased to officially announce Ultimate Water FX for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004. If there's one thing that has always kept FS2004 from taking that next step towards realism, it is water effects.
Over the years we have seen many wonderful scenery, mesh and texture enhancements bring realism in FS2004 to a new level when flying over land. Unfortunately, the water effects have always left much to be desired. After trying just about every freeware and payware water enhancement out there, we came to the conclusion that FS2004 sorely needed to take that next step towards realism.
After many months of development, we can proudly say that you will soon be able to experience the most realistic water effects ever created for FS2004.
With this new product all bodies of water including rivers, lakes, seas and oceans come to life like never before.
Included in the package will be two different types of water effects. You can choose between realistic or reflective water effects. Choose whichever suits your taste! Either way, water in FS2004 will come to life before your eyes!
By now you are probably thinking if your system will be able to run these water effects smoothly. The answer, is yes! These water effects were designed within the confines and limitations of FS9's graphics engine. It wasn't easy, folks. After all, we are dealing with graphics technology that is almost 5 years old.
These new water effects were created from scratch with performance in mind to give you the best possible quality and frame rate. To run these new water effects all you need is a Microsoft® DirectX® 9.0 compliant video card. In fact, chances are that you already have one installed in your PC or laptop so you are pretty much set! Aside from that, there are no additional system requirements or processing power in order to run these water effects at max detail.
