It isn't just you, they have been a flat blue for me as well and I'm pretty sure I have it maxed out, only get a ripple/wave effect on the surface but nothing like that screenshot you showed. I wish they did look like that.

I would be more concerned having no wings or tail on that plane if I was you, rather then looking at the river.

Almost everything in your post is incorrect. EDGE is coming for the Black Sea theatre, and what little we've seen of the Nevada rivers indicates they are vastly improved, with 3D river banks. Furthermore, this was shown nearly two years ago, as early WIP.

So why are they showing all those screen shots of the Black Sea Map then? But I have to agree with you on the "Edge is coming any year now." It certainly feels like it.

Bring back the old rivers while we wait for Edge? The old ones look like rivers unlike the new ones that could be mistaken for wonky blue roads.

I often mistake the rivers for roads when looking through the different cameras on the planes lol
