Green Water Fix v2.0 Compatible
v1.1(option file) and older versions are available in Nexus.

For DLC Dawnguard, you can use GreenWaterFix_v2withDawnguard from Nexus.
(No need to register the site, it's a small file :))
Other DLC, Hearthfire and Dragonborn, don't need especial file.

If you have DLC Dawnguard, please use nexus one. Unsubscribe this STEAM one.
If you don't have DLC Dawnguard, please use this.

Make visible some underwater which have the 'zero visibility of underwater' problem.

This mod DOES NOT normalize 'underwater'.
Only making it visible.
Original underwater blurring will be lost.

What It Does
Enable in UnderwaterImageSpace...Depth of field...No Sky

Load Order
1.Anywhere, in case of Vanilla.

2.After 'Water mod'.

for example

Known Issues or Bugs
If your savegame doesn't work with this mod, fast travel to far place several times.
And try console command 'PCB' (Purge Cell Buffer) in interior cell, and after, fast travel to somewhere.
It's for updating cell data.

This mod conflicts any mod changes 'UnderwaterImageSpace'.
But enabling those mod's 'Depth of Field...No Sky' in CK by yourself, it's all compatible.
When you do so, no need to use my mod. Make sure to deactivate it.

About 'bDoDepthOfField' in 'SkyrimPrefs.ini' in your 'My Games' folder
'bDoDepthOfField=0' setting also makes underwater visible.
But you will lose your ENB settings of DoF.
And also it makes your underwater no color, and no blur.
So, I recommend you 'bDoDepthOfField=1' when using my mod.
If you choose 'bDoDepthOfField=0' setting, please deactivate my mod.
It doesn't need any more.

I'm having issues with it when I get to the ocean. Rivers seem to work fine but the north coast is still having the same issue. Am I missing anything?

I must say this is by far the best mod EVER EVER EVER! (which should have been a fix by Bethesda!). I only wish I got it earlier but oh well this game never gets old. I'd be screwed without it and it works GREAT with pure water. For those of whom don't have the *glitch* you have no idea how frustrating it is!. I must say THANKYOU again my second playthrough was so much better. If only there was fixes for all the other little bugs in the pc game especially the nightingale hall bug!

Hi, I downloaded the GreenWaterFix_v2withDawnguard, but now it's when I'm half underwater that I got the green water (so unless I'm completely submerged, I can't see underwater). Is it normal ?
Otherwise, it's fine since I don't plan on spending my time swimming.
Good job :)

2, Launch your "Skyrim Launcher".

3, Wait a second for finishing downloading. (Look at my new pic 1)

4, Confirm it activated. It's "Data Files" section of "Skyrim Launcher". (Look at my new pic 2)

5, Start the game :)

litterally all i see when i go under is nothing but pure color like your second picture for this mods before picture. sadly it looks like neither of the pictures you posted.

I took pictures of water with my mod.
Please take a look at :)
How does it look like in your Skyrim?
Both outside and inside, are they the same as my pics?
If not, there might be something wrong with installing. I guess.
