Finding: Genshin's water exists only in horizontal, 2 dimensional sheets. Additionally, true water is not graphically represented at all times, while graphically represented water is only an approximation. Evidence: See clips at the following link - 1 shows Jean standing in waterfall without getting wet. 2 shows venti climbing into waterfall below the 2d plane of "true water" without getting wet, but getting wet when he climbs into it at a slightly higher angle. When Venti then falls through the waterfall, he remains dry the entire time before impacting the second 2D plane of water. Greyhound's videos demonstrate that such planes appear to have water properties from below (Clip 3), and that its edges in some cases look to be perfectly square (Clip 4). Razor illustrates the trouble with this in Clip 5 by electrocharging the "true water" hidden below a dry floor and hurting himself with the resulting electrocharge AoE. Significance: Electro is awful for the overworld because you can electrocharge water which resides in a flat sheet invisibly below the ground with AoE attacks. By doing this, you take continuous damage while standing on a dry surface. Also, you can stand in waterfalls without getting Wet(edited)

credit goes to @Greyhound | Cryo Currency Dealer and @ishnu as well for their testing in #cursed-terrain-world-levels on electro crystals, which were the initial catalysts of this. More evidence to follow

feel free to upload any of the vids I sent that are not on yt or ask me to do it
molJun 8, 2021 10:05 PM
Greyhound | Cryo Currency DealerJun 8, 2021 10:05 PM
reminder that all evidence needs to be on yt/imgur love(edited)
molJun 8, 2021 10:09 PM
oh yeah i'll go compile that now, was assembling here thanks love
other key evidence from these two posts: 1) 2) uploading mine to imgur shortly, @Greyhound | Cryo Currency Dealer would you prefer to upload yours to youtube and get credit or should I upload them to imgur with credit to your discord name/number?
Greyhound | Cryo Currency DealerJun 8, 2021 10:20 PM
I don't mind either way, whichever works better for you
molJun 8, 2021 10:23 PM
i can upload it into a thread on imgur so it's all together and you don't have to do any more work, just wanted to check in case you wanted youtube views or something (idk how youtube or content creation works)(edited)
let me know if you'd prefer to upload otherwise i'll try. imgur might not like the files since they were pretty large (my resolution is cranked way down for imgur uploads of the silly tree ticket)
Greyhound | Cryo Currency DealerJun 8, 2021 10:24 PM
every single one of my videos is unlisted with the only purpose being evidence, if I wanted views or to be a CC I'd have started a long time ago but that's too much work for little reward
if imgur doesn't work out let me know which vids need to be uploaded and I'll stitch them all together in one and upload to yt
molJun 8, 2021 10:47 PM
alright i think this ticket is done, anyone else want to chime in? I'll leave it up for a day or two and then close it unless editors want it closed earlier. @Greyhound | Cryo Currency Dealer you should be able to see your clips uploaded via link to that Imgur thread. i gave credit by discord id and server. let me know if i need to change anything! love(edited)

writing "$rename Genshin has 2D water would help"(edited)
molJun 8, 2021 10:50 PM
oh sorry, i think someone renamed my tickets in the past so i never knew to do this. thank you for the tip(edited)
randomspadesJun 9, 2021 2:06 AM
I'm pretty sure this also lines up with existing ideas in the tcl like that water is coded as a layer that can be detected by other objects.
molJun 9, 2021 2:13 AM
mind linking me please? i haven't seen that one
randomspadesJun 9, 2021 2:14 AM
self advertisement but yeah
molJun 9, 2021 2:18 AM
fascinating, will look at this more later. thank you very much @randomspades

FLOATING ICE BRIDGE!? | Chongyun Ice Bridge Bug | Genshin Impact

I forgot the ice bridge oh my god. the implication is probably worthy of another ticket: ice on water is self sustaining and extends an independent layer. we can probably argue that electrocharged water is doing the same thing, that's why it hurts people who don't get wet - another layer is being added above it.
this would also explain the stupid anemo skill environment effects ticket i had been rolling around in my head for a while
molJun 11, 2021 8:24 PM
ok so i looked at the zoom cancelling via shallow water and read your comments on raycasting. my sense of this is that genshin water does have a hitbox floating above it oor at least generate one under certain conditions, the layer that electro and freeze can be applied to.
randomspadesJun 11, 2021 8:25 PM
Ooh that makes sense
molJun 11, 2021 8:26 PM
you can see from @Greyhound | Cryo Currency Dealer 's video in the imgur thread that they were able to freeze water from below, so i think the layer is on either side of the water sheet
randomspadesJun 11, 2021 8:27 PM
I think I saw people freezing water below in a video with the water pond in the new update
molJun 11, 2021 8:30 PM
however i just tested to see if i could use camera zoom to detect this later of water we think is under the island and i couldn't. however this is just high enough to be unable to see electrocharged from the crystal, so maybe it is already too far above it
there's a second tick of aoe damage from this crystal (and others) we found in #cursed-terrain-world-levels so i was curious to see if we could use zoom to detect that layer, but i think it's too high
i may have done the test wrong though, i don't know much about the burst zoom
but if you think water might be generating a hitbox around it for elemental effects that'd square with what we found
also the water itself seems to be reaction-independent. i don't know coding or gamedev, but that sort of makes sense to me that it would be this other layer on top that gets modified(edited)
e.g. when you use aMC to swirl ice, they pull hydro from underneath with the hold E
randomspadesJun 11, 2021 8:30 PM
Yeah that makes sense to me
molJun 11, 2021 8:32 PM
thanks for that comment and the zoom thing, it's good support for this idea. we were wondering if this layer might be getting stretched or deformed to make terrain in general, but so far i think the original spirit of this ticket that it is a flat rectangle seems to be holding up best
randomspadesJun 11, 2021 8:32 PM
Happy to help! thanks
molJun 13, 2021 4:12 PM
Going to close this header and leave the first link here I had a theory in #cursed-terrain-world-levels that perhaps the 2d sheet of water layer was being reshaped to make terrain (due to some weird crystal effects we found on select rocks), but I think that is pretty out there. Resolving this as is.
