Dire dire docks: Not the only one with Aquaphilia

    Hail devs, seems like I am not the only one impressed by the "small" details such as nice looking water and volumetric clouds:


    Can one of your engineers elaborate a bit more on this subject and explain how you guys made the water in EQN look so incredibly good? Would love to hear your devs get a bit technical. Would something like that be possible in EQ2? EQ2 used to have beautiful water ripples and refraction, still don't know why it went missing (bug report still open), but the foam, waves and overall water motion in EQ2 still look good to this day, even without water ripples. That said, the water in EQN was way more advanced and even featured waves and other things seen in mmos like Black Desert Online.

    Twyla and Breanna like this.
