This mod is a texture replacer for another mod I have previously uploaded It supports 8K, 4K, 2K, 1K and 512x Image sizes. The aim of this mod is simply to transform the very bad and boring water in Skyrim too much more lifelike and vibrant one.
This part is simple there is 0 effect to performance if you choose the 2K (SSE) or 1K (LE) textures
This is done by editing the textures that control the normal maps of water to be more lifelike and also editing the rendering of such water (I.E ramping up the reflection) therefore if you don't download a texture that is above your games normal resolution there will be no effect on your game (If you download 512x version it might actually increased performance and still look better)
Why does this exist
Look I can already hear it in the comments section that I have already made a water mod and there are too many water mods around. This true but honestly I don't play with an ENB so water has always been a problem for me which is why I keep coming back to water mods because I still want to perfect things.
Will this be the last texture replacer
Simple answer no, however, this is because everyone has there own preference (personally I prefer more flat water) however I know that this belief is not universal so I will be releasing more of these to fit every style (dictated mainly by suggestions and comments, how this was made)
Do you need real water
Well no however they were made for each other and to get the full effect it is the only way
Does this work with RW2 or Pure Waters

Should be compatible with all mods - but will overwrite some elements of water mods
Download with a mod manager and install like any other mod, make sure it overwrites any other water mod.
(Manual) place into /DATA folder in your Skyrim directory
Uninstall like any mod with your mod manager
(Manual) Remove .dds' from the data folder textures/water
Yes this does work with an ENB (Photos attached)
It would be amazing if you can comment suggestions so I can improve this mod
