Have the inside of a water well show water and not the ground beneath. Make it look better on foundations.
It does show water - at least after giving it a little while to refill? Not sure if SP is still bugged in this regard (it was for a long time).
When you look down into the well, you can still see the foundations underneath. Or whatever ground you love it on.
Ah, I see what you mean now. So you want it to have a “fake bottom” as if it’s deeper than it really is. Sure, I can get behind that.
I was saying “yes ! what a cool idea…” than I realized my water well it’s on the second floor of my fortress
Ok, it’s not realistic, but with a fake bottom it could be even mind blowing !
Yeah, being able to place a well anywhere, let alone above ground-level is not exactly consistent with the technology level otherwise available, but let’s just say a wizard did it.
Mine is outside without any foundation below and when I look I only see water. So perhaps if you want your water to looks like realistic, place it in a realistic way…
I suggested something like this some time back, either in a topic itself or in a post in another.
Essentially the idea was to use a flat graphic as the bottom of the well.
At the outer edges where it meets the walls of the well, it shows what looks to be stone. This creeps towards the inner part of the well and grows smaller.
Then for the center you use shades of deep blue to dark black.
The basic effect is the illusion of depth. It’s a flat graphic, but it appears as if you are looking down a deep hole.
Placing it on bare ground does not help. I placed mine on sand to the west of the main Darfari area, where the t4 blacksmith spawns. It shows sand under the water.
More water/well options in general while we’re at it would be great by the way, we have all these fancy materials, but the wells still look like T1 stuff.
