Updated title and added repro steps.

would be an awesome thing to fix! rainy underwater mission :D awesome!

Yes that would be awesome and i think possible because it seems like this has only something to do with lightning strenght under water.

Lighting conditions at depth is also unrealistic. This is at 152m

A bit bright, no?

sapiensl, imagine rain drops on surface of water.

This issue has been fixed in the latest dev build.

Mass close.
