Sonic Ether’s Unbelievable Shaders adds a beautiful lighting effect to the game. The sun shines bright at the horizon, giving the water surface a perfect reflection of its lights. Realistic clouds are flying across the sky, disappearing in the distance. Distinct shadow effects are mirrored by the water because of the incredible lightnings. Mountains rise far away, making the landscape looking like a nature wonder, or lets say a good work from a great developer.
