    Works fine in v52973.



    Here is my version of a more visible mex mod.
    I removed the 3D veins on the surface and left the flat surface graphic.
    Looks great at close range but looks a little fuzzy from far away.

    Install instructions:
    1. Extract the zip and place the folder into your /PA/ folder.
    2. Merge the folders and overwrite any files.

    :( I dislike, how is a picture superior to a 3D model?

    the 3d model can be just in the way if you dont want the image to have the form of a mex i.e.

    Use what you prefer. I personally still use my Shader in combination with a green texture. I know Cola likes the red squares and red mexes, everyone will use what they please.

    The reason I use the Shader is that it helps when placing underwater mexes, but with Ctrl+N functioning, it really isn't necessary.

    Because it's ugly and looks awkward ontop of the surface graphic. Also makes it harder to see imo.

    I agree with Zaphod that his graphic looks a lot better, which is good for casts. I personally have no issue with it, considering how many games I end up playing with Naval.

    Looks like the modification to the shader is not done correctly. Maybe you forgot to exchange it?

    Yeah you're not the only person to report this. I don't get it myself so not sure what's up. Do you use Steam version?
