Default Testing of pool surface tiles...
Although, these are not exactly duplicates of the swim-pool surface tiles, but at least they do function.



But, I need to see how stable they work under different game versions...
Welcome to report... Thanks...

Settings for Pool-surface-tiles:
---[the basic properties]---
1. txmt type = PoolWaterSurfaceMaterial
2. txmt properties:
2a. stdMatCullMode = none
2b. stdMatFillMode = solid
2c. stdMatLightingEnabled = false (true \ false)
---[the textural properties]---
2d. wmReflectionTexture = reflectionoutdoorwater-envcube (or other envcube textures)
2e. wmRefractionTexture = reflectionoutdoorwater-envcube (or other envcube textures) ***(there was a typo for the "refraction", I apologise for that.)***
---[the wavy properties settings]---
2f. wmRefractionEnabled = true (true \ false)
2g. wmTransparency = # (# = 0.000 - 1 , from my limited experiences so far) [eg1 = 0.5]
2h. wmXRepeat = # (# = 0.000 - 100) [eg1 = 12]
2i. wmXSpeed = # (# = 0.000 - 100) [eg1 = 4]
2j. wmXWaveHeight = # (# = 0.000 - 100) [eg1 = 0.1]
2k. wmYRepeat = # (# = 0.000 - 100) [eg1 = 11]
2l. wmYSpeed = # (# = 0.000 - 100) [eg1 = 3]
2m. wmYWaveHeight = # (# = 0.000 - 100) [eg1 = 0.15]

Yeah, there're several settings to add or change at once... for the present model which is regarded as the basic model. Certainly, the one in the complex swim-pool tool is much more complicated.
Yet, using different parameters can result in expected various wavy patterns. So, feel free to make up your own easily...

(Reminder : I may edit this post later again for info update...)
