Update scenarios to make full use of the new water shader.

Description

Given the new flexibility and the general differences between the new and the old water shaders, most scenarios if not all of them could use a refining of the water settings. I've done the RMs this morning but I'm leaving scenarios to those who know them better than I do.

A reminder: -Water colour is now the colour of the water at high depths (and everywhere when murkiness is 100%). This is the colour used by the fixed function, too, so keep that in mind. -Water tint is the colour of water in the semi-transparent areas, ie near the shore or in shallow waters when murkiness is not 100%. -Reflection tint still works the same. -Waviness now scales the waves, from none to big waves. Starting at around 50%, foam will be apparent (not in Atlas though where superfancy water is deactivated) -Murkiness is basically a parameter that determines the depth at which the water is 100% opaque. Rivers generally require > 90% since they're muddy, but this can be tweaked in a variety of way.

These new settings also mean that making the bottom of oceans more interesting (varying depths, varying textures) has more benefits than before.
