Great, Calico! A fair bit more complicated than my effort. My brain isn't geared up enough and I've barely just started playing with the functions in T2.
I like to choose the easy way out and try and get just as good results my own way. This looks really great though, nice work!

This is really good! I am glad that I gave it a try ... and it quite fast.

Is that compute terrain necessary? I do not think so ,-)

It isn't?  Okay.  It seemed like I needed to recompute before going to the next stage of the node network.  Did you try it without the Compute Terrain?

Yep - and I killed some other nodes ,-)

Please repost your results.  I'm diddling around with it now and found that the Constant Scalars at the top can affect the amount of turbulence.  Lower numbers in both will produce bigger waves and higher numbers smooth out the ocean.

At first, I changed the values of the constant scalars. I love odd numbers so I changed the second one to 499 and the first to 101 - just a feeling.
The Mix-Scalars produce the same values 0.5X + 0.5Z. So I deleted one of those nodes and on the other side an Exp Scalar node (just for fun).
Deleting these nodes did not seem to effect the result much.

So did you remove the Sin Scalars above or below the Mix-Scalars?
