How do I change water colour?
Posted by N3V Games (Paul) on 27 July 2015 01:14 PM

Water colour is changed on a per route basis by following these steps:
Edit Environment > Time Tab
Click on Water Colour Preview
Adjust the R,G,B colour dials

Tip: set the dials to between 7 o'clock and 11 o'clock for best results

To adjust the water effect, go to the Environment Tab and click the left and right arrows below the Water heading to cycle through the various options.


  • If you do not select the water colour preview window, you will not be able to adjust the dials
  • Changes are currently saved in the Route Layer. We will be moving this to the Session Layer in the future, but for now this means that built-in routes cannot be edited
