Hi, I'm currently working on a 2D game which takes place mostly on water. The camera is top down and can be zoomed in and out quite a lot. Well, it can't be zoomed in more then what you would see from an airplane flying above water as close as it can. I'd like to make a nice water effect which would work well when zoomed both in and out, but I couldn't find anything on the net - almost every water effect is in 3D or it's a side-scroller. It doesn't have to one effect; I could somehow transition from one effect to another while zooming in. I got some ideas, but as I have no expiriences with these effects I think it wouldn't look very good. So I would appreaciate some examples of how I could do it (or similar games - I couldn't think of any topdown game with a water effect!). Thanks in advance.

The ripples are too small, it looks like if you were directly above the water...but thanks for the link, I'll try to play with that and see if it works when I create big ripples.
