Wow, awesomeness! Shall check that out right now!

Added: Cradle to Grave doesn't have them... Odd. Well, I've noticed something with Cradle to Grave... It's really buggy. INSANELY buggy. Practically any usable object crashes my game, so at some point I think I might try making a full list of them. :P In the meantime, which maps DO have them?

BB1 has it (albeit miss placed) though it has a flame stuck to the top of it wich kinda screws up the color anyway. Look around.

For what it's worth, Cru, I think the green makes more sense in 2 ways:

1) Water does turn copper green, so the blue does look silly, authentic to Blood or not.

2) The water is not included in the model and therefore is 'invisible', leaving only the metal vase to be skinned.


Either way, I think you're right.

Water is nearly transparent, and through large quantities of water, a blue tinge is seen. But you already knew that, humans who live on Earth! Well, I agree with Frightfan. I think the BLUE water looks stupid. :) That was intended as constructive. ;)

Clearly, water has no color, it only takes color from its surrounds and of course from light.

Water appears blue from reflections of the sky. In most situations (rivers, natural bodies of water, etc..) it takes a darker form of brown from the silt and soil withing and below it.

In the case of being in a fountain, Cruaich is spot on in the fact that water would be in no way blue... it would be transparent, or, as he stated, having sat in a copper/brass object long enough, it would start to corrode into a light-greenish oxide.

Great! :D
The model could look more like a tube (more sides), but other than that it's all good.

I think it approaches perfection.

That toxic waste can is really good. The font of the letters on the can is a little off from the original but otherwise the model looks perfect!

Yeah, that was the only font I had that seems to be close... for some reason I cant find the font I was thinking of to replicate it, it's bugging me too.

It seems to use the same font used for our console, or close.

I'LL HAVE YOU KNOW, I have THOUGHT about that before! ...and you may be right, but its regardless that any bit of water that small would be completely transparent. :)

Check out the image. Note the blue in the glacier, and the lack of blue in the sky? ;) Maybe it is just an illusion...
