A few screen shots with ocean sunset. There are still some minor issues with ocean rendering but these should be fixed soon, followed by a blog post about the implementation where I will dump the info for my own reference.
And to forget all about it :)

Note - white balance corrected externally, still not implemented in engine.

That is pretty stunning. I love the reflections off the water; surpass those of most other games I've seen (at least on this scale).

That looks brilliant! I love the shallow water and the white foam on the shoreline in the first pic! And the lighting looks great.

The perfect place to anchor a boat.

Been coming back to these screens off and on all day.  At first glance without zooming in, you don't see any shoreline artifacting, so I was pleasantly thrilled.  Then I had to zoom in and realized it was just a result of the resolution of the images as displayed in the forum.  D'oh! :)

All in all though, what awesome looking images!  I can't wait to try it out.  Getting a new video card either today or tomorrow, so I'm salivating :)

*Edit* Oh, and #2 is new desktop background :).

Waiting for Angrypig to get the trees fixed up ... looks good so far.  Soon as he gets everything perfect, I'll have yet another new desktop background to enjoy :).  Now I just need a software solution to rotate my backgrounds periodically  :lol:

You nailed the coloring!  I could sit on that beach all afternoon.

Mother of god...

Why didn't I see these yesterday. I troll this place too hard to miss something this important.

If there were a tatra or apache on that beach in the first one I would have to make it my background. Still that sh|t looks CRAZY on my FW900. SO ORANGE!

Lovely classic image, I have family photos of wife and children walking hand in hand on that beach .... great foam, I wonder if the beach waves might be eventually variable with option to have larger rollers, perfect surf  etc.

The wave parameters can be already altered to some extent, but I'm leaving other and better wave shapes to a later time. At the moment the wave's leading slope is just smooth geometry with animated texture showing the movement of water. This part should be enhanced later with better and tunable surf wave geometry.

I assume that would be the obvious pattern seen in the water in the last shot. Will you be allowing the wave on top of the water to be dictated by the depth of the water? That is how it works in real life.

Yes the pattern is one of the issues there.

I don't understand what you mean by the "wave on top of the water". Beach waves already exist only near the shores, rising as the bottom gets shallower. This effect isn't visible in places where the shore is steep.

More along the lines of still waters run deep. When you look off of the shore you can see visibly by the rolls in the water where it gets deeper or where the tides and currents aren't as prevalent.

Here are two examples.
