What are you exactly having trouble with? You weren't very specific.

The wave pattern, fuck I can't even remember how :(

I think it has something to do with making an alpha map of the shoreline. Check through the tags for Death Island, thats where I remember seeing it.

place 2 planes that are quite close on top of each other but dont overlap a big one on the bottom that is the water, then 1 thats just above, thats very close that is like 180 units wide that you place all around the beach

I'm sorry.....what? For the love of god refrain from typing run-on sentences.

All I could decipher.
