FS Water Configurator, developed for Microsoft Flight Simulator X, is a free utility that allows you to edit the in-game water texture. Flight Simulator X has a very poor shader model for water, reflection intensity, glow effect, etc. Using this program you can replace default shader files of the Flight Simulator X and create your own ones. It contains a lot of options to suit any taste. You can make the water look more realistic according to the weather conditions, time of the day and others.
The program enables you to control the water textures in many different ways - for example, you can change the horizontal/vertical reflection intensity, reflection blend curve intensity, base-texture color intensity, sun and moon specular reflection intensity, moon glow reflection intensity, surface wave effects and so on. FS Water Configurator comes with various presets, including special effects, such as extreme waves, night and glass water, etc. Note, that this aplication just enhances water look, but doesn’t change base texture and animations. It supports all FSX add-ons, including Flight Environment X.
