The last water picture looks worse to me. It's a river so the original actually looks good there. All others, are great.

With that particular picture of the water mod, it makes it look bad. However the mod definitely makes water look better. This screen was taken by me a few weeks ago.

i have all of those mods haha. they definitely make things more detailed.

only thing is, it kind of stays away from the original art direction, so that might bother some people. doesnt bother me at all though, love the detail.

@CrimsonEngage: i can confidently say that that water texture pack looks better than vanilla. it changes not only the texture, but also the mesh to make it* look less exaggerated. also, there are different types of water for rivers, lakes, and oceans.

Lol, a majority of the comparisons werent even included in the HD texture pack because they knew modders were doing them. Was pretty much comparing vanilla to HD mods.

I don't like the 2K textures pack myself. It's not just high-res textures that make a texture good but the art behind them. Textures essentially sourced from photos to straight ingame just doesn't cut it for me, personally.
