Override ocean

Doesn't this looks beautiful?

I don't think so, either. But I'm sure you can come up with a use for replacing the default ocean so here I present a way to do so. However, as you my notice coastlines are a problem. To solve it (depending on the color of your water) you might have to override the ground, too. Another thing is that water will always be blue in the minimap.

So let's start with the needed graphics:
water_orig.png
sparkle_orig.png
Both are divided into 8 frames which are then used for the animation. The latter image is use for the water sparkle effect (which can be turned off). If the latter image is just white for you that's normal as it just uses white and transparency.

So let's replace these graphics by applying some color shift:
water.png
sparkle.png
Now the important part :json

Code: Select all

[
  {
    "override":true,
    "id":"$anim_ocean00",
    "type":"animation",
    "frames":[{"bmp":"water.png","w":128,"h":128,"count":8,"offset x":1024,"offset y":3072,"target height":64}]
  },
  {
    "override":true,
    "id":"$anim_ocean01",
    "type":"animation",
    "frames":[{"bmp":"sparkle.png","w":128,"h":128,"count":8,"offset x":1024,"offset y":3072,"target height":64}]
  }
]

But I'm sure that <KoalaGuy> will soon come up with a very funny and weird way to use this feature, like he always does.
