Both are outstanding. I cannot wait to see what else you do with this. Your work is wonderful!

If only we had Water Works to get that great edge of the iceburg effects...Guess Jo's busy on the mac stuff...he created that plug in IIRC...

I just love your images but I have to say that the old one is far better in some ways. The water model in TG 0.9 has better foam solutions. TG was so artistically oriented those days. We could do the things in a very easy way but now we have to graduate in mathematics.

This is probably some of the best ice I've seen in TG, good work!

The ice is in fact better in TG4 but I also like the water effects of the 0.9 Version.

A little bit I agree with Marcos. Not a reason to give up but sometimes it's a really hard way to find solutions. On the other side there are possibilities now in TG I didn't even dream about in 1999. But the little bulldozer function do digg into the terrain was quite cool :)

Great image, Luc! Nevertheless somehow I like the Classic one better too. The water is fantastic.

Hi

I did not try to clone the original one, but to rework a scene I did with first Terragen and see what I could do with T4.

But that's true if we compare both I would say also that I prefer the classic... I guess we can do better with T4 than what I achieved here, specially on water. But I would say also that most of pictures I saw of iceberg there is no foam and wave scale looks small compare to iceberg size. So maybe original one was less realistic

Yes small waves and occasionally big ones when in this example of the video of the fresh water inside an iceberg vat leaves it creating several waves foams and eddies, or when part of the iceberg disaggregates and falls into the water.

check at 5min 58sec.

So pack/water works plug-in were the best that's for sure.
