Ocean / waves looks very weird. Looks transparent plastic who blows in the wind.
For combat I would take inspiration from Mount & Blade Warband. It is fun and realistic.

How do you mean for the waves? Shape, motion, color, surface?

I think the water itself looks perfectly fine. The shoreline however doesn't look too great. Also the water popping through the ground is quite weird

All coding is done in C# except for a couple of assets that we have yet to convert over.

I am not sure what happened, but the whole intro to the video is gone. Sorry about that, not a lot was missed, just showing that buoyancy was actually working this time around. HD is slightly better, but is still pretty badly broken.

I really appreciate the openness of this update. Most devs just won't tell you what's going on at all. I appreciate that you keep us posted.

100% volunteer and we do take donations for assets and software, but that is it. We are always looking for more volunteers to help in some capacity!
