Ocean Algorithms and Waves?
« on: December 19, 2011, 02:26:40 am »

Is an algorithm like the one used in used in Outerra for the oceans, and is this video the actual Outerra engine? Will there be some sort of variations between the wave sizes? For example, will Hawaii have huge waves compared to South Beach Miami, FL? Have you heard of the work done by Eric Bruneton?http://www-evasion.imag.fr/Membres/Eric.Bruneton/

Sorry I'm asking so much, I just love the work your doing and I would love to be business partners on a game someday!

No, Outerra water is different from Eric Bruneton's implementation. Plus he can't do beach waves (yet), they would be actually harder to do with his approach.
Our waves can be scaled, to an extent, but we can't get proper large rolling waves yet (that would be good-looking, that is). Needs some more work.

Yes, we've been even in contact with him, and there are several threads on the forums that mention it too.

As a marine sim guy, I can't wait to see the future progress of the Outerra water. I'm looking forward to sail ship's and submarines in the Outerra world.  ;)

Hi all. Sorry for my poor english and for my stupid question. I would like to modify waves and i would like to found a way to increase slightly the height of the waves. Like Cameni said me  i have to "Open the console (alt+c) and type:
"Code: [Select]
.bind m maprender
m.wave_amp(0.05)
m.surf_amp(4)
m.wave_len(800) "
Then i have opened the console and after i tryed a couple of numbers...then... i have press enter key but...i seen : "no such interface".  (Sorry but i'm a very bad pc user.)
 someting was wrong.  Someone can help me? Thanks a lot.

Hi!

First time I tried making a copy-paste... that doesn't work... perhaps is your case?

you have to type line by line, starting with     .bind m maprender     and pressing enter after each.

Oh...thanks. Now run. Very interesting setting whit : m.wave_len(1300). :-) More realistic...ihmo :) but when i exit from outerra all return whit default values.
