Pure Waters

Description
This is a pure, clean, and natural water, as it should be in the cold mountains of Skyrim. This mod provides water with complete overhaul:

- Colors enhancement: natural, wild and various water colors.
- Realistic transparency: big shorelines improvement.
- Various streams: each type of water area has its own texture and flow effect.
- Reflections improvement: no more too-glassy waters.
- Underwater redone: a bit more realistic underwater.

Textures are in 1024x1024 uncompressed (2x vanilla resolution, without compression). No FPS drop. This mod does not modify worldspace and cells, so no conflicts or CTD guaranteed. Skyrim 1.5 Ready. It is compatible with everything (any other mod including HD textures pack from Bethesda) excepted others water mods.

Optional Files:

If you are a Dawnguard and Dragonborn user, you can download and install Pure Waters Legendary (available at TESNexus only). You can also download and install my optional landscape textures for water areas and rain ripples effects.

In any case, go to my Nexus page: https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/users/1213768?tab=user+files&BH=0
and follow instruction.



READ THIS BEFORE SUBSCRIBE:

I will try my best to help users playing with my mod but PLEASE read the following before asking some help:

1/ This mod is a simple textures replacers, it CAN NOT crash your game! After 100+ hours playing with my mod, I ve NEVER crashed. If you have CTD, blame another mod, or your computer, but not water textures...

2/ If you come from RWT or W.A.T.E.R, be sure to DELETE manually every textures and meshes from them! I can't guarantee that Pure Waters will work normaly if you don't do that before installing it.

3/ Purewaters.esp should be at the bottom of your load order.

4/ If you can not see anything under water, be sure to have bDoDepthOfField to 1 in your SkyrimPrefs.ini. You can use also a mod called Green water fix.

5/ flickering water is a visual bug appearing when your game run at 80fps or more. Use a software to cap your framerate.

6/ Compatibility:

Pure Waters should be compatible with everything (except other water mods of course). I've noticed problems with some weather / lighting mods (like URWL). In this case, load Pure Waters AFTER this mod (if you load it before, my mod will not appear and you will have Vanilla water).

Thx everyone for the support and 5 stars rating! I'm glad you like my work!
