Water And Terrain Enhancement Redux (also called WATER or W.A.T.E.R.) enhances the water throughout Skyrim. Each type of water (ocean, lakes, rivers, marshes, and creeks) have been hand-crafted to improve the flow direction, with a more transparent shoreline. The foam, rain and waterdrop textures have been upgraded to high resolution textures. Water no longer looks like goo and overall the world seems more beautiful.

WATER is a continuation of the popular Realistic Water Textures and Terrain mod by isoku. RWTT had a lot of bugs and problems with writing mod info into save game data, so SparrowPrince and the team decided to make a completely new mod that eliminates these problems.

Previous mods such as Kerplunk - Watery Rocks (this makes water rock textures look more wet), That's Ice! (improved ice textures), and Animated Water Trough (turns the default trough water located at blacksmit forges into believable water) are included with WATER on the Steam Workshop. This version hosted on the Steam Workshop is the High Resolution textures version. You may customize this with additional plants, medium resolution textures, Dragonborn version, and reduced splash by installing the Skyrim Nexus version[skyrim.nexusmods.com] instead of subscribing to the Steam Workshop version.

Key Features:
• Oceans, lakes, rivers, marshes, and creeks each with a unique ebb and flow.
• Rivers that flow in the correct direction for the most part, ocean waves that flow towards the coast.
• Added effects to waterfalls like more foam and splash effects.
• Foam, rain and water drop ripples replaced with high resolution textures.
• More transparent shorelines during clear weather.
• Rain mist included.
• ENB water parallax compatible.
• Reduced excessive splashing of objects in water. (Optional)
• New wetter looking rocks near and in water.
• Animated blacksmith trough water.
• Frozen water puddles.
• Animated row boats.
• Water plants and water-based ingredients. (Skyrim Nexus version only[skyrim.nexusmods.com])
• Various water textures to choose from. (Skyrim Nexus version only; the Steam Workshop version uses Blue[skyrim.nexusmods.com])
• Dragonborn add-ons with waves. (Skyrim Nexus version only[skyrim.nexusmods.com])
• Dawnguard add-on. (Skyrim Nexus version only[skyrim.nexusmods.com])
• Falskaar add-on. (Skyrim Nexus version only[skyrim.nexusmods.com])
• Compatible with mostly everything except for other mods that modify water, such as Pure Waters. It should be compatible with mods that fix the underwater green screen bug, though this may vary.

Current Version (2.06) Changes:
- Additional changes since version 1.75 are not listed here.
- Fixed error on rapid rock mesh (no texture)
- Replaced "genericwater.dds" texture with new one for more detail.
- Some small changes to some textures under "effects" folder.
- Updated all regular water surface textures with ENB parallax which should look much better and
more defined. This is not for the calm waves options as it would make them too rough. Calm options
do still have one texture for ENB parallax though.
- Toned down the rapids around rocks as they had a warping bug which made the textures look
as if they were melting. This is a texture space issue with the default game, and remaking it would
yield the same results.

Does anyone have any comments on affecting performance? Running on a midrange Toshiba laptop and Intel 4600 and wondering how big of a hit this will take.
