Water surfaces look grey [1.41] [June 2023]

Water effects in places have lost some of their blue hue and if the sun hits it just right looks like a grey mist (1.41)

Yeah, I got this too

I got these again but in Watopia today - water was grey - think it might be the same as the over exposure issue in the tunnel that has been around for a while

edit - sorry should have said was in the desert bit that has a slight uphill and water

“Slight uphill”!?!

That’s a terrible slur on the mighty Col du Tempus!


In addition to water being gray, the workout arch infill color is gray too. Also sometimes the arch color is wrong on the mini-map and also the outline portion, for example here the arch is coloring blue when it’s about to go to Z4.

White water in Petit Boucle Route:

+1 seeing grey water bodies (Windows).

Thanks for the reports everyone. So far - folks reporting this on Windows and macOS.

Anybody seeing this on iOS / AppleTV / Android?

Grey water at Titans Grove:

I can confirm Android is also affected.

Water is normal in Watopia for me today on PC.

Not all water surfaces are affected. In Watopia I didn’t notice any grey water. In Makuri, the country lakes are grey but the ocean is normal.

Does it really matter

Based on that last photo I was struggling to see the issue. I’ve often seen water look just like that though it’s normally under a grey sky :grin:

Yeah, loving the new feature, just like IRL when the sky is grey. Thanks Zwift, you are awesome!


Can’t tell if you’re being sarcastic or not?

That theory does fall.apart when the river in France, where it is always sunny, is affected as is the water in the desert.


is this grey water going to effect your results if you go past it while doing a ramp test, is it going to effect your Cda while drafting a robopacer that you’ve managed to join up with after having a coffee stop half an hour into a group ride, will it cause you to miss out on a PB on a nearby segment, I would guess the answer to all of the above is … NO
