comment Mouse Aiming Causing Rotation Jitter
I don't have much time to write a formal answer (and think it through enough to warrant a formal answer) but, instead of Quaternion.RotateTowards(), you likely want Quaternion.Slerp() (link) to ensure you don't overshoot your target rotation.

comment Getting correct angles between Vector3s
It does if you follow the Unity standard and make your lines go along the Z axis instead of X. If you're not going to orient it that way, can you explain how you're doing it to help ensure the math is done on the correct axes? (i.e., is +Y up and +Z right?)

comment Rushing water in unity
What aspect(s) of a river with rushing water do you want to "create?" A moving semi-transparent texture? Or an actual simulation of water running across terrain? Does it need to dynamically flow? Or is it static and just needs to look convincing?

comment Are there many games involving the manipulation of water?
Mostly because that game didn't exist in 2010 when I asked the question. :) Though, now that it does exist, it's a very good answer.

comment 360+ degree rotation skips back to 0 degrees when using Math.Atan2(y, x)
+1! A very thorough answer to the question and proposed solutions to the actual problem.

comment Unity - Code is fine in the editor, has error on android
If you put a lot of debug output in there, you could narrow down the precise line the null reference is occurring on. If I had to guess, it's possible that die may be the object that doesn't have a reference.
