Which video game has authentic water physics?

In my experience, the Assassin's Creed games come the closest to reality.

AC Origins is a fantastic illustration of this concept.


However, details such as these may quickly ruin the illusion.


There is something unnatural about the way the waves curve the ground at such precise intervals.

While it's become extremely fantastic, it's the attention to detail that makes things like this possible, such as the way water interacts with surfaces, how it splashes with a waterfall, how it whitecaps in different wind conditions, and how it sprays in the air. Not fantastic, yet not entirely grounded in reality either.

Making progress. No, it's not quite there yet.

    I'm a bit confused what I should do for user/vote relationship. Should it be a one to many from user or a one to one?
  • A @ Augment:
    So that a user can only vote once per thread
  • PGen98 @ PGen98:
    I want to say it's one to one, but in all honesty I'm a bit fuzzy there. I can recommend JoyFreak's sister site AdminIntel - Admin & Webmaster Resource where there are lots for people of varying degrees of expertise with development, you likely can get a far more precise answer there!
