Reflective Water and Sun Flare

I've decided to add some special effects to the game.

1st Effect: Reflective Water

This is my new favorite effect! The entire world is reflected in the water. The screenshot doesn't do it justice, so I may post a video of it in the coming days.




2nd Effect: Sun Flare

Computer games and graphics tend to mimic the world as seen through a camera. That means re-creating even the negative effects of filming, such as lens flares.

Personally, I think it looks awesome, and again, this screenshot doesn't do it justice. (so stay tuned for a video)!



*note: All effects can be toggled in the options menu.
