Would you like to have floating Lava in your games?
Did you ever want to now what a map would look like after a volcanic eruption?
Did you ever want to do a scenario with fitting unique terrains?

Then this mod is for you.
It changes the beach, water, shallow and ice textures to ones showing lava.

In this V2, the deep water has more contrast and is darker, so the wave effect is a bit less strong, and the colors don't look as 'washy' as in V1 and better fit the medium water colors.
In exchange the fire shape of the deep water is less noticable.

In the screens you can see the old and new deep water to get a feeling for the changes.

For the mentioned 'washy' look. On the screens, and in streams, everything seems to look ok, I just experienced this when actually playing with the lava myself. So this mod isn't a replacement for V1, but an alternative in case you experienced something similar or just like the new look of the deep water lava replacement in V2.

For everyone that is interested in the volcanic texture pack:
I released it as a halloween special:

I guess differentiating the terrain is the tricky part, because there are bunch of different terrains that should look somewaht distincive, even if they are all covered in ash ...
Sounds awesome though; I can't wait :)

OK, I tested around a bit the last days.

First I tried to cover everything with lava and volcanic rocks. That looked really awesome, like playing in hell, but there were no real gaming possible for you couldn't really tell were land and water were placed beside the minimap.^^
Second try was to coveer the land only with volcanic rock and ash. That too helped me to figure out the best looking terrain textures, but wasn't playable as well, as every land terrain looked very similar and the whole screen was red and black...

So what I'm planing to do is a V4 texture pack, containing areas of volcanic rocks, lava and ash on every land terrain and a combination of water and lava for the water, like the lava is floating into the sea. The snow/ice part I thought of looking like melting for the lava, so ice will be lava/volcanic rocks partly covered with ice, with visible lava beneath. And the snow will be less than on normal snow terrains.
For game objects like trees, mines, berry bushes and such I thought to make them looking like beeing covered with ashes. Similar to the ones you can find in my winter pack.

What do you think?

I think that would be a cool idea Zetnus.

Interesting idea. I'll have a look at that.
Damn, I have to start organizing all mod ideas/requests to not forget some of them... ^^

Hey Ozhara, If you haven't done so already, I would suggest that you could make a volcanic texture pack for land textures that fits with the lava for the water. So that the whole map would like like it was after a volcanic eruption. I was thinking a lot of grey and black, a few grasses trying to grow through the volcanic soil etc...
