Watercraft support
« on: September 16, 2013, 12:03:32 pm »

Basic support for watercraft is coming into the next update, here's a preview video:



Boats and ships (and submarines) are handled as normal vehicles, with a few extra parameters that define hydrostatic and dynamic forces. It's also possible to easily define amphibious vehicles.

Nah ... Admiral Kuznetcov is what we need.  Together with the whole northern flott. And do not forget theyr bases !!! ;D



How is the depth of the craft being calculated ? Is there some weight and underdeck volume function ? ... or just a depth-constant ?
And how about influences of really long ships as an tanker ? They are slightly "slower" to react to the surface-wather doe to theyr mass ...

Very nice!

It's also possible to easily define amphibious vehicles.

We can't make aircrafts float yet, only vehicles now? Would be nice to make Shavrov-2 float.
