Ok.

This is the point where I crap in my pants and I have to found my dropped jaws somewhere on the floor.

I can't find any suitable word.

So I asked a guy in my office if he knew where "I took this picture" referencing the 2nd shot above (GIMPified). He said he didn't know and then came closer to scrutinise (he being a bit of a photographer himself). I thought he'd realise, but he didn't!
He just said it must be some photo I got from the web of some valley.

I then proceeded to explain the Outerra way to him and showed him some space shots and the beach scene.
Of course he was suitably impressed.

Gotta love it!

I had a similar experience with a friend I sent a screenshot to.  The only thing that gave it away was an errant tree hovering above the landscape (I think it was in one of the Cessna screens).  In that second screenshot of the sunset, you can see a similar errant tree hovering, but only after close inspection.  The average person probably wouldn't see it until it was pointed out.  These shots are so realistic it's practically criminal that it's not a real photograph :)

And molnibalage, I think the suitable words for this is that Angrypig and Cameni should be charged with Crimes Against Humanity ... for not releasing a version of this engine before Dec 31st, 2010  :lol:

*Edit: Unless, of course, that will be their Christmas present to all of us  :D .  /sigh ... Dear Santa, all I want for Christmas is Outerra.  Can you please give Cameni and Angrypig some new toys to add and speed up the creation of this very beautiful engine?  Thanks, and with love, C. Shawn Smith.

Can we see that GIMPified image? Be really interesting to see how realistic it is (and what you edited in the photo to make it look more realistic)

I don't like the darker look (mountain is a lot darker), but it's a lot less green which I like, a lot crisper.

Now THAT looks realistic!  u3z05en and Shawn, try showing that picture to some people, it should fool them into thinking it's real!

Last picture is absolutely stunning! You definitely need to make some filter to have such graphics in the engine itself :)

Yup, that's the one I used! Worked like a charm!   ;)

Now do that same shot with an Apache gunship in the distance and the tatra looking all bad-ass on the mountain..

That shot alone could sell a blind man on Outerra..

There really is no green on that hill, its brown dirt and trees out of direct sunlight.

Um.. That is from the engine? I imagine he modified the white balance of the game. I don't think it's in their nature to photoshop ANY of the screens from the game.

Here is the best shot of a sunset I have ever taken.. Weird it occurred in the Bronx..

I mean the atmosphere looked like it had quite a greenish haze.

Also, that sunset is unbelievable :) Where is that?

Will be nice if so. But by the exact position of the camera and the sun I thought that was GIMP or Photoshop. I can make the same for second picture easily:

grabacr 31770 asked to see the GIMPed version, sorry I didn't make it clear more that it was the GIMPed version he asked for.

We'll be implementing an algorithm like that, but not the way GIMP does it as that would require two passes - one to analyze the scene and the second one to mix the colors. We need an algorithm that uses the current atmospheric situation and lighting condition to produce a matrix for color mapping. I have yet to find the theory behind it. It's not just about white balance, the reaction of human eye is complex and adaptive.

The fact that you take that many things into consideration makes me think this engine is going to be awsome.
