Way too much blue in water, especially sky, and fog,
Reviewed, LowPublic


Sky is way too blue and so is the water. It may look nice but completely unrealistic. It makes the map look like a Battlefield 3 map. Looks way too fake. Even the fog is blue. I've never seen blue fog in my life. Battlefield ruined their game with fake looking maps and now Arma is treading those waters

I can't agree with the water color.
From my point it is def not to much blue.
See the depth of the coast ingame, most of Greeks island look exactly like that.

I agree with the fog. Too much blue like the ACR dlc for A2.

Less coloured fog please. It might look nice in screenshots but it doesn't work well for gameplay.

I don't agree. Underwater is merky and foggy. Anyone who has been for a dive in the ocean can tell you that after a distance you see "blue fog". The pictures the guy posted above are a good case.

Things in the distance will have a blue haze over them because of particles in the air, the further away you are from something the thicker the layer of air you are viewing it through.

Mediterranean water is also really that blue.

Omg so unrealistic.

edit: You guys, gloating over realism when you don't even know what you're talking about.

Yes, some parts of the world have very blue water.

Not talking about the blue water but the fog. It's too blue and becomes thick too fast for it to be the blue haze you do see over long distance.

Agree, way way way too much blue. Sometimes, doing too much realism actually makes the game less realistic. Arma 2 is MUCH more realistic in terms of colors. I mean, it feels more like a movie than cartoon. Arma 3 is just cartoony looking, unplayable if this much blue in it as a "simulation". Not immersive at all.

Ps. It would perhaps be good if we could alter that settings on client side, R G B values. Then people could choose the look they want. Some people perhaps would even like black and white. That would be kind'a cool and it would give option to players.

Nothing wrong with options.

When the sky is clear, and you're not in some overly polluted place.. The sky is very blue. I've seen it lol. Sky in arma is not too blue in my opinion.
