Water Mask Detroit River / Lake St. Clair

Hi Cesium, incredible work!

Is it possible to do an update with a water mask over the Detroit River and Lake St. Clair?
Right now we are substituting with a waterbody actor, this update will be nice!

Hi @Geopogo,

While the Cesium World Terrain watermask may be updated in the future, I can’t provide a timeline on when that could happen. In the meantime, there are some ways you can improve the look of the watermask in your project.

You can draw out areas to include in the watermask with a Cartographic Polygon. You’d need to use a custom material for that. A custom watermask material is included with the Cesium for Unreal Samples, in case you’d like a pre-made material for that method. You can read more here.

If you have access to watermask imagery for that area, you can upload it to Cesium ion and drape it over your tileset. You would need to do a little material editing to have that overlay render as water, but I can help you through that if you decide to go that route.
