Riemers is a good series of tutorials.

I had about 20 of those tutorials i converted to reach all in one project.

A long while back i tried to convert them over for monogame but i couldn’t get the shaders to work right.

I learned how to do water from that tutorial even altered it to make the water reflections blend with transparency.

I never did finish it i didn’t make the transparent parts undergo refraction. I realized i should of also made the transparency fall off with distance as well as reflection, as diffusion and refraction increased.

still pretty cool.

I wonder if the original owner still has the original content and I can host it up for simple viewing… or if they can put it on GitHub or something…
