[Resolved] another water question
« on: Feb 11, 13, 11:19:19 PM »

Hey all, How big can a cube map be without causing issues. like one being used for water. should they just be broken up per area? what would happen if one was to span a huge cube map across their land. Just trying to find out the capabilities of hero thank you ;)

A cube map is just a texture, so you might be misunderstanding what a cube map does. In this case, pertaining to water, it's used to simulate a rough reflection, without actually rendering a reflection.
