Oleg, - just a quick note of thanks for the new "excellent" mode water.

It looks amazing and was an unexpected and very pleasant surprise in the new patch.

It's more then just excellent, it's beautiful.

Absolutely. It's enough for me to give up on Perfect entirely at the moment and just sit back in Excellent and crack up the FSAA.

still looks like flat glass for me. I must have something wrong with my settings.

Set the time to 9am or 3pm with excellent mode switched on and you'll definitely see what's new. Seems to go missing at 12 noon.

Yes, its the shadows. At mid~day the shadows are shortest. I think this is a mistake, as the Default time of day is 12 Noon, and Oleg's Team should have let some shadows exist at 12 Noon. Say, make the minimum shadowing the 3pm shadowing that clint said.
