How do I make better stylized water?

I’m using a custom texture for the caustics effect but it still looks like a very flat plane to me. Anyone have any good tips or resources on making more believable stylized water? I feel like this is almost there but not quite…

Moving the bottom of the floor downwards and increasing transparency should do the job.

You can add some water flow coming from the direction of the waterfall.

Definitely agree with my dude @Crazedbrick1, honestly this alone might be your solution. Just don’t make it too transparent or it could wind up looking fake. The whole scene honestly looks really good too, I’m very impressed! :slight_smile:

These are all really great suggestions, thank you! I increased the transparency, made one layer larger than the other and that seemed to help sell the effect more. I guess I should make another texture with wavy lines on it for the waterfalll flow…
