SmoothWater is a mod for players who’ve always remained overwhelmed by the way water looks in Minecraft. Minecraft’s visuals generally have a fair bit to offer even in spite of the game’s rather distinct art style but water is something that’s historically looked lackluster in the game and this is probably why the SmoothWater mod came into existence. Unlike traditional mods, SmoothWater isn’t really designed to add any new functionality to the game and focuses solely on the visual aspect so, if you’re looking for new gameplay mechanics, you should probably look elsewhere but, on the other hand, if you simply want to enhance the look of Minecraft’s water, this is a mod that you’ll certainly want to try out.
The SmoothWater mod basically makes it so that the water in Minecraft renders smoothly, due to this, it looks a lot smoother. As soon as you apply this mod, you’ll see that the water looks absolutely spectacular and you may just want to stop and stare at it for a while as you admire its beauty. Another thing that we like quite a lot about this mod is the fact that it allows for proper lighting under water and all other liquids so you’ll have a much easier time looking through water in order to see what’s under it and this is something that you couldn’t previously do.
Since SmoothWater is a simple visual tweak and doesn’t alter the game’s functionality in any way, it’s highly unlikely that you’ll notice any changes to the game’s performance once you’ve installed it so, if you play Minecraft on a computer with low-end hardware, you won’t need to worry about the mod causing frame-rate drops. All said and done, SmoothWater is a great mod that makes the water in Minecraft look significantly better than it usually does.
