    Are those screenshots taken under identical weather, settings etc?
    Is that second shot 'Water =4' ?

    If not can someone post a pictures of the difference between water=3 and water=4. Thanks.

    I was going to ask this very question after the patch hysteria and new-plane frenzy had died down a bit.

    Water=4 looks really really good... its a huge FPS hog though... like another 50% off Water=3.

    Even with the second 7800gtx in the box I had to go back to Water=3 to get better than 40fps

    I'm beginning to suspect that FB/PF is really a lot more CPU dependent than newer titles... I only get around a 15-20fps increase with SLI, whereas the fps in FEAR and DoD:S have doubled.

    I didn't notice the water "looked" so much betteer in =3 mode with the new patch, but my system seems to handle it better

    Too bad about the sli setup. I was thinking of upgrading someday to improve speed enought to use =4....

    oh well

    None the less, I'm not able to gain gret benefit when palying il2PF, when compared to most recent games.....
    We can just hope that the new BoB engine will provide better performance.....
    On the other side, if so Merged installation will not be compatible !!!!

    I`m on Water=2 which is really nice and even had ship reflection. FPS slowdown is unnoticable. It looks really nice if a little plastiky (though this is a quibble as the water is great). I did try water 4 which did cause slowdown, but not as bad as expected. It wasn`t worth keeping since I`m still fighting over the Eastern Front.

    But i`m seriously considering going to water=3 if the FPS doesn`t fall much.

    I`ve got to really thank Oleg and his team for such a great job on optimising the water to work so well!
