wow it looks very nice. The only issue is the visible pattern (tiling).

Incredible stuff!  

How does it look (especially the waves) as you transition to higher altitudes?

You have orchard beach NY down perfectly. You would need more floating hypodermic needles to really capture it however.

Keep up the great work.

I was going to post something earlier when I watched the video and read the blog, but I was left speechless.

I still am.

Thank You for that insight into the construction of waves in the Outerra engine, I was amazed to read of the parameters being taken into consideration, wow! its little wonder this engine looks so damn gorgeous when you pay attention to so many variables. I feel truely lucky to be able to witness these developments.

The video has painted a million words... Staggered at the level of realisim. We are not worthy master! ;-))
