..........in the map shots of Midway and Kure in the dev update.
Question: will the ocean in the final release be more azure as in the Pacific online map or greenish as in FB?

Chris455, would the color of the water as it appears in the PF forum masthead be OK (at the top of this page) ?

I also wonder if different shades of water color would be used. Like the water directly above shoals would be a lighter blue color, but deep water will be a darker blue (like over the Marianas Trench, for instance). That would help in navigation, IMO.

Yes Capt. I agree.
I hope the water is "blue", not the greenish looking water we have in FB.
I was concerned about the Midway island map screenshot but I'm sure Luthier knows what he's doing-

Before (when vector grafic was the law for the simulations) green was the standard color of the water. It is a bit weird now.
GET IT "BLUE" THIS TIME! We will be flying over the ocean and not over some small lake that reflecs the green suronding!

Agreed - good one.

If the water can be deep blue overall with the shoal effect along shorelines and near atolls that would be a good thing..

It does say "work in progress". Since they got the blues just fine in the pacific online map, there's no reason to fear it won't be blue in PF. I'm not worried.

zoomar -

your right W-I-P ... and the pacific water in the online map in FB is blue.. I think the question is more "why is it green in the update"?.. but I will be happy either way, I've got a cheap pair of Buddy Holly shades with decidedly blue lenses..I'll just wear 'em when I fly... no probs. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

Bunch of flight sim tourists reading too many vacation brochures. I bet real life Pacific water looked FB~esque. You do know that Oleg put those palm trees in FB map to satisfy the lust of western flight sim tourist mentality and look what happened to fps LOL.

Luthier1, FB water works fine just make sure you get Ki~27 in. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Hold your horses Lexx.
I've lived in San Diego, California my entire life. The Pacific Ocean is NOT green-and FB water will NOT work "just fine".
Just wanted to clear that up.
You may have your Nate now. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

They didn't have a Jug last time. But I went on Sunday. And the advert doesn't mention a Jug.
But I'm going anyway- http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Saturday is best - planes are still arriving on friday and on saturday night a few guys leave early - by sunday its an exodus.. especially late Sunday..

I missed last years show.. but Saturday is the best day to go.. and the Jugs have been there everytime I've been so far.. I hope they still are.

Was that big ol'Antonov biplane there last year?... and the B17 Texas Raiders?..

And did you see the Wildcat fly?.. sounds like a tractor that big radial does.

No but I saw The bearcat and the Yak 3 dogfight. I couldn't get over how frickin' small the Yak is, smaller than the F8F, which is tiny.
The P-51 is pretty healthy looking next to it too.
All I can say is, if there is a Jug there, I want a pix with me in the pit!
