As we all know water in AoM will be realistic, but in all the screenshots and movies we've seen there are waves that come towards the beach now this is great for a seas or oceans but what about streams and rivers where the water flows downhill rather then waves hitting the shoreline. I was just wondering will ES give an option for water being sea water or river water,I think this would be a good idea, altho not vital to gameplay

Good idea, although it seems ES already considered it, and made rivers have "calm waters" for rivers.

Ya, what Last_Knight said. I can't remember if I read it or someone from ES said it, but at one time they had waves on rivers and such, and them mentioned that they needed to change that because it wasn't right. Presto, they changed it.

Attention to detail...you can be sure most, if not all members of ES are looking over, critiquing, and scrutinizing every bit of art in the game.

Oooooooooooh i love the river screenshot.
Aha !!! Now i have seen something special on the SS.
The little building on the right side looks like a "Market outpost". Can anyone tell me what it is?
I think it is not an house but maybe i'am wrong.
Aha ! another thing is coming into my head.
There is a trade cart (ahum, a half trade cart) and there is no market!!!!!!!! Maybe the trading cart is trading with the "Market outpost"!

Aha ! another special thing!
There are 4 units carrying a wooden thing or something ( i can't see what it is).

I think rivers don't have waves.

A way for them to add flowing water (in scenarios) is to have a tile set for "water rapids" When you go to put down the water tile you would hold left-click and a little arrow would appear (the way the arrow is facing is the way the water would flow) and then you would move the arrow to the way to would want the water rapids to flow...

one thing i hope they have (if they have water rapid tile set) is if you have a surfaced rock in the rapids you would see the water go around the rock and splash up against it...

Rivers have their own "currents", not as much waves.

Waterfalls also create "ripples"

adding on to my post.

You could also (using the "arrows") make eye candy. Like make whirl pools by making the arrows form a circle, then you could add triggers that if any unit goes ontop of it they die.

WoW!
Good Idea WhoAskedU!

adding to my post...

Waterfall
you can see the ripples the waterfall makes, but before the waterfall you can see the lake/river has ripples.

River Current

In that one even the blood of the dead is carried by the current.

Check out the newest SS and you will see that there are waves on the ocean but not washing up on the banks of the river.
