Thank you for the support; you lot are amazing! Thank you to everyone who has donated as well. It really drives me knowing you have deemed my work worthy of such an action. I certainly don't ask for anything, (or get a lot of people who do donate) but I really appreciate your kindness so much.

Next update will see about focusing on Far Harbor, but my tweaks currently cover the ocean there at the very least. I will also be looking into adding more effects and trying to bring those horrid base-game animated waves up to par with the Far Harbor ones; my goal is simply not to replace them with the DLC ones, but make my own so they are not dependent on anything. ETA unknown.



Description


This mod offers alternate water textures for your game. I didn't really like the look of the default ripples due to odd 'wrinkles' in the textures themselves. It makes them look less dynamic, shows up more repetition, and also makes it look like actual eyes are peering at you - if you look close enough. I have designed these textures similar to the originals, but for them to make their own ripples of their own accord. The water now looks more dynamic and less artificial in nature due to my unique approach to creation.

There is now a plugin included that edits all the water you see in the game at a base level. Waves in ponds and lakes will now lap, ocean water will now churn, and every other type of water will just look that much more natural. Oh, and let's not forget the water surface seam fixes that Bethesda doesn't care about for some reason.

Also included:


  • Foam textures
  • Rain ripple textures
  • Rain drop textures
  • Waterfall textures and meshes
  • Splash textures and meshes 
  • Effect bug fixes

The mod now also supports ENB water displacement (or parallax) in the water textures themselves. WHEN this releases, you should grab a compatible ENB and ENB version to enable more depth to your water. Default game water does not currently support this effect, only the textures in this mod have it.

Compatibility

As with any mod you will need to pick and choose which files you prefer if you download another with the same files. Either overwrite the other mod with my files or the other way around depending on what you like. I can't tell you what is which is better for you personally; people like different things.

Performance

You should suffer no performance loss, but some textures are slightly larger for extra clarity.
I am very performance conscious and always have been. A job well done is one where you find the a nice balance between performance and visuals in my book.

Media

Please check the Videos tab. If you want to make a great comparison with version 1.72+, please post and I'll see about adding it here. Videos that highlight other mods in the same video will not be featured. That's not rudeness, it's just I think you deserve more credit for taking your time to feature one mod - and who wants to come to this specific page to see a video of some other mod anyway?
