Realistic 3D water Ripples

    Where did this effect go?
    You used to be able to turn on the option that actually created realistic 3D moving waves/ripples as you swam/walked through water. How come this is no longer in the game?

    These have been missing for a long while now.
    I don't know if it has anything to do with when they tried to implement the upgraded shader option with no success or what.
    Here is an old forum link for when we definitely had the nice water effects as an option in game:

    Good question. I asked about it long while ago when I first noticed it was missing.
    Even worse, the option is still listed under water in the settings. It just doesn't do anything anymore.
    At least the splash particles still work, that's something.

    My only guess is they removed it because if someone was very speedy the water effect started looking strange when they were swimming.

    I notice this feature's absence quite frequently. It was one of the things I enjoyed most about the look of the game. Now water seems oddly placid. There aren't even ripple textures spreading outwards from where my character is like in other games, much less actual ripples.

    Example HERE between the links start time and until 45 seconds in.

    We've got this in our Q to look at. Not real sure why it up and borked like that... thanks for the posts all.

    This seemed to disappear around the same time as the interactive flora option. (Which would be awesome to get back too!)

    Flora moving as you walk through it, and the ripples and 3d waves of the water...
    i miss those days!
    These options have been gone for a long time (i think a few years maybe more!)

    Thanks for looking into it!

    Hate to bump a thread, but I am curious as to how much progress has been made on getting this back in the game.

    Face it, I think they deleted this code and now its lost forever :(
    lol
