    Advice on creating a "Water Wall" material

    Hello everyone

    So actually I created some nice art for my game leve, but right now, I'm trying to create a water wall material similar to the one used in game like R6 Las Vegas 2 and Mirror's Edge (Remember Jack Knife Level? when you are down in some kind of rain water treatment system?) But I need some advice. How should approach this "problem"

    Thanks in advance

    Just find a nice texture of a water or make it on your own, Run this in Crazy Bump or Nvidia Photoshop Normal Map tool to create a sweet looking normal map.

    Now, just add the "Water" normal map and blend it with your old one. Also add a panner node to the new normal map, and make it pan in desired speed in the Z axis....or whatever axis you feel the water should be dripping.

    You can also match this with a specular map following the normal map.

                    Yep it looks good. You actually reminded me because thats the next thing I have to do for my level is create a water fall but not water wall. This will come in handy though.
