Great Developer

This asset is simply amazing. If you are looking for a stylized water shader, then this is the one to get. Between great looks, support and customization, it's hard not to love this product. Staggart Creations has made a number of great products privately for developers and this is currently the best asset he has released on the store. I look forward to the new flow direction feature that will be added as well as the real-time reflections. Overall great product with great support, excellent performance and awesome customization options! Great job Staggart!

That water shader so amazing. Using it in mine mobile project. Works well even without DepthBufferScript on camera (in my case).

I love it

Not the most realistic water shader on the asset store, but maybe the nicest. It gives a ton of artistic control, which is fantastic. For huge bodies of water like oceans, the fact that the waves are very simplistic becomes a little bit of a problem, you can see repetition. For smaller bodies like pools and ponds it's perfect.

Looks Great!

Amazing look and very customizable, its also very very fast! The only question i have is that if I adjust the normal strength, under the surface category, It will always reset itself when I reload Unity. How can I fix that? The other settings save just fine.
