    Need Advice on Waterfall.

    Hey!

    I'm a newbie and this is a map I'm working on. I need some advice on what to put in the slot (on the sides and back of the slot) where the waterfalls come out off. The picture below doesn't show the waterfall because I am yet to find a tutorial on it so I've just used the model from sawmill but it's basicly the same thing. Should I just box it in and put a black texture on the far back part?

    Here is a picture.

    Thanks to the help on this site I have fixed the top part!, Now I've made a waterfall from two displacements, Using the textures from the sawmill model. It looks pretty sexy. The only thing wrong is the texture needs to scroll faster and I need to add particles. So I guess the next question is!!

    How do I edit a texture to scroll faster?

    Cheers again

    Well, if you plan on texturing the map, put the textures of the walls that will surround the waterfall on the sides and tools/black on the brush behind the water.

    You need to make a model, for example with blender or xsi mod tool.

    I used the Black texture for behind my waterfall too, and just shaped my displacements around the waterfall so it looked fitting.

    Just make sure the origin of the waterfall model is within the map or you will get a leak.

    I can't help you but it might be worth asking in the request thread.

    I've changed the main topic of this threat to avoid starting a new topic, New question is "How do I edit a texture to scroll faster?"

    Can you make a displacement with scrolling texture?
