..more shores and beaches..

im using the black sand mod for its inshore textures but i use ploppable sand to create variations. i also use Peg's PPond kit to carve the shorelines and its ploppable water to create the illusion of depth. if any one would like a tutorial on this shoreline method i would be more then happy to make one.

also i will be making update to this journal although i am not continuing the original idea or premise of it. if this is inappropriate or you find it annoying i can hold off making updates until my next journal has been prepared.

..lastly, a note on color correction...the original color graphics of SC4 can seem quite dull and faded sometimes. so if you use ifranview try experimenting with the color correction option, you can get some really great effects. i wish i had known this when i made my first journal. heres a pic of my default color correction tab which i now use for all of my pics.


and now my progress on the shoreline:

I for one would love to see your tutorial, that's a great beach effect there!
I use GIMP to change my colour settings for screenshots, as it also has some other useful tools for preparing shots.
