    Question Where Are the Waves???

    In graphics, my waves are set to High, yet everywhere in the world the sea is plateglass flat, with cloud reflections.

    I have some water texture in some lakes, but the ocean is completely featureless. Screenshots I have seen indicate actual waves, and certainly not dead calm.

    Am I missing some setting?

    Thanks all,

    I think they temporarily turned the water textures down in the last patch, but plan to bring them back soon.

    Yes, they definitely need to turn up the water effects! We know it can be done!

    OK, glad to hear it, but the last patch was within the past week. My problem with no waves has been there since Day One, 08/26. Here's my first screenshot in MSFS2020. That would be an unusual day in the Bay Area!

    I would think the waves will only come to life when you apply wind to the simulation.... I've not got that far as the sim keeps crashing...............

    All the effects are disabled at the moment, they're still under development.

    they are not disabled.
    If you put wind in the drop down menu weather at 60 kts you will get a beautiful sea with moving waves and white foam crests

    the problem is the logic relation with wind speed.
    In real life wind will cause the sea to be wavy just at 15 kts
    Some good soul need to find out which sim file we must tweak to show rough sea at slower wind speeds

    Sorry I meant engine startup, exhaust smoke, wingtip vortices and contrails effects.

    Amen! 60 knots is a bit breeezy, I think, for most of the prop planes.

    indeed, but sea only gets lively at that surface speed
    I made a video

    we need someone to find the file that tweak wind speed to activate waves at lower speeds
    and we are all set
