Water Physics

Water as noted in a thread by csgill75 seems to act strangely, lakes are just like landing on a runway, frozen solid, some lakes have edges that are fluid and act more normal, the first video is a lake landing.
So then I took off to the coast, to test the water physics and I was quite impressed, the other videos are ocean landings.
Water looks very promising in RF-x, bring on the future !!!

Found a coastal area with a beach to check the effects of aircraft entering and exiting water from land.
This coastline is a big improvement over the end of map type.
The first video plays good, no strange physics.

The second video shows what occasionally happens, the aircraft can perform a weird dance at anytime in a video, water physics definitely need fine tuning, although the graphics quality is excellent.
I can see RF-X gaining a lot of float plane followers once the bugs are fixed.

Thanks Jeremy, the video illustrates some superb water physics.
RF-X 1.5 is the game changer.
