In the last Developer Q&A, it was said that water mask updates would be delivered via streaming data, and that water masks demonstrated in the Around the World trailers would be released to the live builds not later than a month after the trailer’s release.
Clearly this is not the case. It appears that water mask updates are dependent on the WaterBlurMasks.cgl file, and unfortunately, the majority of areas with tropical water demonstrated in the Around the World trailers are yet to appear in the simulator. For example the Oceania trailer, released on 18 August.
Can you please clarify the situation and maybe give us a rough roadmap regarding future water mask updates?
