New INI setting available to disable this skin if you wish.

Mask supports any map, but below are the maps that have been tested and reported OK.
  • The Island + Underwater Caves
  • The Center
  • Ragnarok [Thanks Letoric]
  • Madagascar Evolved [Thanks Hermit]
  • Aberration [Prelim Test OK] - Potential Improvements

This mod is confirmed working on Valguero, for anyone who's wondering.

No need to update, still works great on all maps I've used, which is all the official and most of the popular modded maps.

Is this mod still being updated or is it abandoned??
BustinCider Nov 28, 2019 @ 10:56pm 
any chance this works for valguero

Any chance this will be updated for Val? I depend on this mod for being able to do any water stuff since I have a phobia of dark water. I really wanna be able to explore that part of the map =(

What a pleasure swimming is now. You've done a great thing here

It does work on Valguero, but it's got a green tint to it. Please consider adding an option for "no tint"? The reason is that the underwater stuff is colorful, and if the water were just clear it would be quite awesome-looking. Thanks for modding this! tint and all, it's one of my must-have mods.

While this mod is wonderful, it doesn't count for giving you toxic cave gas immunity. Any chance that could be fixed?
