RE: My water reflections are gone
I'm at a loss, Capt'n, to understand why I had water reflections in FS 2002 but get none at all in FS9, especially since I still get them in 2002 even with FS9 textures copied over into that sim.
I've tried the various solutions offered here the past month or so but to no avail. This has been the case from the get-go, right out of the box with no tweaking.
Is this problem (and I do consider the lack of these reflections a problem, while others might not give a fig) a function of my lowly cpu, my "leaves-much-to-be desired" graphic card or, as I would suspect, the sim's coding?
I'd be very interested in your opinion, Capt'n. Having just paid the first semester tuition for my freshman son along with opening my wallet for the asssociated costs of furnishing a dorm room, it will be a bit before an upgrade is possible. Consequently, I doggedly continue the search for the heretofore elusive solution to my dilemma.
Intuitively, at least, it just seems to me that if I had 'em before in the prior version, I should have 'em now in the new and improved edition.
Just as an aside - since it could be relevant - no matter what I set Terrain-Land Only at, if I set Water Effects to the far right, the setting reverts back to the middle on its own if I go back into settings to check it after hitting OK.
