2k Water (Now with 4k version) 1.6

I always hated the way some of the textures for the water looked and saw someone post it but he literally resized it, so i took obligation to find my own textures and remodel it to my needs. I had alot of different options, but the one i decided to finally settle on looks extremely beautiful and alot more realistic. I'm not going to say photo because we can't get it that perfect yet :P.

Simply make the clear water such as pools,dams, small ponds with a realistic looking texture. It add's a nice actual sewer affect to the water by the sewers etc. Also adds a beautiful fucking texture towards the shore shallow parts in oceans

How to install?
Simply open up open iv, Enable edit mode then navigate to x64a.rpf > textures > and simply drag and drop the water.ytd and the graphics.ytd. ( If you get a autoupdate make a mods folder right click and press copy and then paste the original x64a.rpf into your newly created "mods" folder. Follow the instructions above and make sure you have open iv's asi plugins( Open up open iv and click tools-Asi manager) loaded so you can launch via that modded rpf. )

I used this enb mod to make the water look alot better.


Changelog: 1.0- replaced water texture to make it seem alot more realistic in shallow parts
Changelog 1.2 Replaced foam how water moves, Areas with closed bodied water;dams and sewer actually look like sewer water now, Shallow parts of the ocean have it replaced so it actually looks like the California water. Fountains have it as well. Closed bodies of water actually look like closed bodies of water.Changed caustic(Custom texture)

Changelog 1.3 What's new?

Replaced a couple textures. There are 2 options 2 choose from. Option one: simulating waves with a windy vibe. (Realistic ocean and constant moving waters.)
Option two is for calmer waves but alot dreamier look(Simulates how the ocean really feels alot better) It's up for you to decide which you like more.

Fixed the bug for some users that were experiencing random jolting on the reflection of water when it rained (heavy/thunder etc etc)
Pools look beautiful and simulates a stimulant for the "jets" that run like in real life. (Waves move back and forth)

Deeper parts of the ocean/ small bodies of water have different texture looks such as (when i was younger i went on a cruise. The water was bluer then i've ever seen but so gorgeous and looked really shallow but the captain said it was about 30-40 ft deep) It looks like that from the eye but when you get in the water it gets dark simulating realistically. Actual deep parts get really dark while more shallow looks shallow and see through. Towards the shore or rocks etc etc you can actually see down there!! Looks beyond gorgeous.

Sewers are murky but still clear as it's running slowly so doesn't simulate extremely green water if you know what i mean.

Changelog 1.4: Urgent update!!!
Super shitty update. Water was messing up. It was the water bump and caustic that was causing it. Changed water to a new 4k custom texture. Looks quite beautiful. When you look at the dreamy blue water you can't see fully through it unless you're by the shore so changed it to do that. Caustic is less intense so it looks quite stunning i must say.

Fixed the reflection bugs including the outline and water during rain is fixed. Looks gorgeous.

Quick fix. i'll include a option 2 later on tonight. Just wanted to fix the bugs.

Removed images so I can update with the new versions screenshots, so to those who disliked because i assume from screenshots they don't look like that.

Changelog 1.5 Made the water texture more of a dreamier blue.

Blends in just right at least to me.

That's about it. Enjoy

Changelog 1.6 Maybe final version unless i wanna clean shit up and add something which i most likely will

Added a 4k version of it. This was made from scratch instead of going and stretching the previous one to a 4k resolution. This is true

4k water. If you have 4k then please feel free to make a vid of it to let others see.

    @Quixoticed probably outdated by now last updated in july 19! or you need a new installation path for it

    @ayoody3yeq Last update is still the newest version as I saw nothing needed to be changed except maybe the foam a little. At times it seems to have too much coming out which gives it a unrealistic look.

    @Quixoticed I haven't been on here much in awhile nor playing gta until that gta redux came out.

    Did you copy and paste the x64a.rpf into your mods folder, click edit, go into the rpf, textures, drag and drop the graphics.ytd and water.ytd into it? Don't run open iv as admin as well because it will cause issues with dragging and dropping. If you did do it correctly then the water.ytd file should be around 1.2mb-2.7 depending on which you installed and the graphics should be around 2.8mb. Please feel free to let me know if you have any issues.

    @juiceproductions Hmmm... The water.ytd checks out with around 2.6MBs, my graphics.ytd however seems to be wayyy smaller than what it's supposed to be. I copied graphics.ytd that was in the zip(in a folder you named "You don't need this if you already installed the previous one") you uploaded though.. http://imgur.com/6IfUfNF

    Isn't there a massive controversy behind the "modder" for Redux, like Pinnacle of V where they found the same codes from GTA Realism and VisualV?

    @Quixoticed yea, Redux uses this same wayer.ytd

    @Quixoticed @Weirdoutworld Yes I gave her perms to use it on redux as well as PIV. Anyways. It should change to that file size. Open it up and if it's a really light blue and in either the 4k version or the one that you see when you open the archive which is I believe 2k. Some people forget so I'm not calling you dumb but don't run openiv as admin. Just do it regularly and then click edit mode and redrag it. It should look like this http://imgur.com/a/8Njl8

    Depending on the water settings the higher it goes the more you'll see a difference.

    Really sorry I don't get on as much as irl stuff is going on but i'll try and help when I can.

    @juiceproductions I have never opened OpenIV as admin, so that's a meh.

    And yes it's the 2K version, http://imgur.com/a/pK1d3. But my problem isn't with water.ytd. I just copy paste the water.ytd as I don't have any other water mods installed.
    It's with graphics.ytd(I only found one which is in this folder, http://imgur.com/a/sBI1D) which is weird as I've tried both ways, changing the six textures(caustic, foam, etc) and also just straight up copy pasting the graphics.ytd.

    I'm gonna try again with the latest update as I haven't been playing games since I'm having exams :(

    Thanks for your reply, good luck with whatever you're doing irl though!

    @Quixoticed It might have compressed it. graphics.ytd is 1.225mb stock. If you have something that uses it already. Export the textures then reimport them into that graphics.ytd. there will be a file change since it's another modded graphics but it should work as intended.

    If you have trouble feel free to upload the graphics.ytd you use on sendspace or mediafire and i'll do everything for you. I sent you a pm on here so just send it through there and i'll resend it back.

    Also a small update might be released. Testing it out now to see if it's good.

    @juiceproductions is this mod compatible with New Underwater Experience from tall70?
    please reply, it will be awesome if both of them can be installed.

    Work with VisualV patch ?

    February 19, 2017
  • Tubeguy

    @HECTOR1911 It should unless it modifies the graphics.ytd in which then you just replace the following files which I have included in the readme I believe. If not please reply and I will be more than happy to walk you through it.
