great!! then my only wish would be to have that in layers with weightmaps and normalized energylevels :) outerra is awsome to watch evolve...best 15 euros i ever spend. just last night i was flying over our planet with my 8 year old daughter...had a lovely time

I believe the new material shader is faster but i have to test it first to confirm that. From my point of view I optimized a lot of things and thanks to env maps I was able to remove a few computations so it should be faster. But there are things that can improve performance (i take them as our performance reserve :) ) for example better shadow pipeline current one is not very efficient especially on Nvidia hardware...

Nice work! But what about topic title, water would look awesome with BRDF applied, isn't it? :)

Current version is using the same BRDF function for water the only thing missing is the environment reflection. For water the env map is not enough we need screen-space reflections.
