Default GWX 3.0 RELEASED (Links here)

On behalf of the entire GWX Mod Team, I am pleased to announce our 'Gold' release...

GWX version 3.0!!!

The primary objective of this release has been to consolidate all official GWX files and fixes released to date for SH3.

Before today, for a full and correct GWX installation, you had to first download GWX 2.0, then download GWX 2.1, and finally download the fixes released by bigboywooly on top of it all.

Now before getting all upset that we haven't jam-packed it with tons of new features... we have added a few. (Watching you all speculate over the last weeks... its been hard to keep silent.)

Features:

First and foremost... something I consider to be a MAJOR breakthrough in SH3 environmental work. The environmental files for the GWX 16 kilometer atmosphere mod have been overhauled with the critical assistance of Subsim forum member "Onelifecrisis." Most of you are familiar with his previous releases adjusting the Sh3 environmental files, and his user interface modifications. OLC was the first that I am aware of to definitively remove the obnoxious horizon defect in currently available 16 km environments... In GWX 3.0 we have blended elements of our own work that we wanted to retain... with his awesome work.

In my opinion, we've gotten the best of both worlds.

HOWEVER! What you may not be aware of is that he has effectively REMOVED THE POLYGON effect from the waves present in ALL other environmental mods for SH3 currently available...

Before OLC's work:



... and AFTER OLC's modification with GWX 3.0! REDUCED POLYGON EFFECT with certain light angles... giving us water that is far closer to SH4 than any other arrangement currently available for SH3.







Additionally, (with the control-room only) when you dive or ascend, the interior angle view changes to match the angle of ascent or decent! Special thanks to Anvart and Vickers03.

I hope you will understand that our crew is very tired... and being Christmas Eve... it is time for family, friends, and a bit of quiet peace.

Please be patient with us as we upload the GWX 3.0 files to more locations and media types for further availability over the coming days. We know the website must be updated. Just give us a few days to do what we know we need to do.

Guys, please do not expect rapid or consistent user support on Christmas Day.

GWX 3.0 TOTALLY replaces all previous GWX builds which are no longer supported.

GWX 3.0 MUST be installed over a fresh-clean installation of SH3 patched to version 1.4b.

GWX 3.0 MAY NOT be installed over previous versions of GWX.

Merry Christmas Grey Wolves!!!
