Just a few minutes ago I was thinking about how awesome the water looks and I begin to think about slow computers (luckily I just got a new computer, but I’m thinking about how my old computer) and how they would handle the water.

It would probably slow down their computers and force some of them to play "Arabia" type maps (which btw would suck if you were Poseidon and got Arabia in Random map...).

But what if they had options to say "turn off waves" and all the water eye candy to make all the water "standing still" like in EE? This would help those slow computers out tremendously.

And of course, if you want the waves, you can have them...its just an option to help out the slow computers.

Good Idea, assuming the water would significantly slow down machines( which is probably true ) and it is possible to do the proposed transistion.

and the water in EE is ok (the terrain the use under the water sucks) but that is the type of water im talking about...where all the water is flat...

Well if they go true to the mythology Poseidon will also be a cavalry civ, since he invented the horse.

could be similar to AoK's high detail low detail graphics option.

We wouldn't force players with older machines to do without some of the coolest features in the game. We won't keep you from using GPs for example, so we won't limit the types of maps you play on either.

We might limit the size or maybe the number of players, but most likely we would just let you do whatever you want and just suggest a recommended setup for your system.

DeathShrimp, does that mean you can lower the Water Detail if you have a slow computer? Because even if having the high detail is playable on slow comps, lowing the detail WILL make the game run faster...which for people like me, i will sacrafice graphics for playablity.
