Has anyone successfully created a top down view of a stream/river? I need to also work out how to make it look like a boat is cutting through the water.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Yes people have successfully done that before. Your question is very open ended. Try to ask questions for specific problems you're having. See the FAQ about what types of questions to ask. \$\endgroup\$ – MichaelHouse Jun 20 '12 at 16:51

This might be what you're looking for to simulate the surface of water.

You would need to animate particles in a wave fashion, so that each particle's velocity is affected by - 1. wave motion over time 2. the opposite of the boat's velocity ... and move each particle over time.
