I created a python script that can create some fairly good-looking waves. you can find it here: ftp://ftp.fireengine51.org/pub/water.zip. However, You’ll have to make your own material for the white caps. I have a pretty realistic ocean shader in the .zip though. You should search for the marbleterrain plugin which can give you different materials on an object based on slope and height. I tried this, but the results weren’t that good. I could have taken more time with it though. Good luck!

that’s a really nice script, quite useful…

But what I would need know is…

How to create a WAVE, a wave where I can put my little 3D characters so that they can surf on it… and… how can i make waves that get to the shore and… you know how waves behave… BIG WAVES…

Hope you understood…
PLEASE HELP ME!
