Summary0005805: Water reflections break in the FPS camera mode
DescriptionWater reflections break in the FPS camera mode, which is immediately visible when panning the camera around a bit. The reflections are drawn at the wrong position, not matching the actual terrain/units. This happens on all water modes. Tested on the map Tropical-v2 and Calamity 1.1.

For some reason though, the FPS camera reflections are ok when I start the game in FPS camera mode in Balanced Annihilation, and they only break if I start in some other camera mode and then switch to FPS mode.

In Zero-K I can't replicate that BA behavior, and FPS reflections are broken even when I start in that mode. Might be because ZK UI controls the camera modes in it.

I went through my archive of downloaded spring versions, and the earliest version having this issue is 101.0.1-414-g6a6a528. The latest version not having this issue is 100.0.1-157-g6ffc001.
Steps To Reproduce1. Start the game on a water map, preferably in some other camera mode than FPS to ensure reproducibility.
2. Switch to FPS camera mode and move the camera around a bit. The reflections are drawn in the wrong position.

I can't reproduce any visible brokenness when starting ZK or BA (any recent git test version) and typing /viewfps with either 104 or 104+git.

There's what it looks like to me, when I downloaded a fresh 104.0.1-178-g720bf24 minimal portable 32 bit for windows, added BumpWaterReflections=2 and Water=4 to springsettings, fired up BA, and typed /viewfps.

I wonder what the difference between our setups is.

And that BA version was a bit old and had some errors on 104.0.1, but nevertheless the issue is the same between all versions of ZK and BA I've tested with the engine version 101.0.1-414-g6a6a528 and later.

Your config dropped in place of mine does reproduce this, it's caused by FPSFOV=90 (which defaults to 45) and actually affects all cameras that allow setting their FOV. Fix underway.
