It sucks. It looks good (but way too reflective compared to real water) as long as the water is not moving. Try it with waterfalls or anything moving and you'll fall from your chair because it looks so ugly.
Notice it's still in Alpha version. And besides, who are you to care about graphics in the first place when you're playing Minecraft?
it was said that it was impossible to make mirrors... then how is this possible?
could somebody make mirrors now please ?
People like to say something's impossible because it's hard to do and/or they're too lazy to get it done themselves. I'm sure someone important has a quote like that. Anyway, my thing. Although this looks amazing, it makes the water look too clean. Not all water is perfectly clean. Also, this reflects it too perfectly. But I guess smudging it up is just more CPU usage. Lol IRL it's harder to get a perfectly shiny lake but in games it's harder to get a dirty one. And wouldn't this look really strange in cave lakes? (I mean full on underground cavern, not just coves)
