I would like to change the water material to appear darker - almost black. I can't figure out how to make this happen. No matter what settings are changed the material stays the same. Is there a way to accomplish this?

Hi Dustin,

When the type of material is set to WATER, there is a fixed shader that you can't tune. What you can do is create a GENERIC material. A bump map called "WaterWaves" can be used from the generic library to make it look non-flat.

On the screenshot you can see a sample water material setting with GENERIC type. You can play with specular setting if you want it to be more/less reflective.

Hope this helps.
