Mario Galaxy-esque water (Zandro and GZDoom compat!)

Here's a very light (on system resources) animated water shader, with cartoony fake caustics effects and nice specular highlights. Compatible with Zandronum, GZDoom 1.8.6-2.4 (using the Zandronum version), and GZDoom/LZDoom 3.x (or newer, using the GZD version).
In the Zandronum version, this shader replaces warp2, the GZDoom version functions like a regular hardware shader and doesn't replace any functionality.

It's called "Mario Galaxy-esque" because it uses the same technique as that game does, with some slight tweaking.

The texture SMGWATER is used for opaque blue water (like in the screenshots) while SMGWTXLU is used for translucent water (like in the screenshots), which doesn't have any color by itself (it's blended in with whatever is under it).
