May be time to send in a hitman. Or hire the bastard. It even uses OpenGL. BUT, this video is almost a year old and I am not sure if there are any plans to continue development or what. Text looks Japanese on the video description.

This one's water is insane.

Wow, the refraction in the water looks impressive.

I say split the difference and hire the guy AS a hitman.

yah this water has nice displacements, but it hasn't foams ;) So camenis water is nicer - even at the coast.

  • It´s way too complex, dont let me try to explain !

Its impressive, but, i think the dimensions are a little bad (waves/hills/planet scales and regarding the speed it shows while mowing), or is it just my bad feeling?

We are still undeveloped as long as we don´t realize, that all our science is still descriptive, and than beyond that description lies a whole new world we just haven´t even started to fully understand.

The size can be adjusted. So his world can be even bigger. But i guess, that his resolution is smaller than outerras one. And he surely didnt use the logarithmic-depth-buffer-technique. Thats why OT has always nice resolutions on every distance. But at all he did a great job. He can generate infinite worlds with water and atmospheres. For a tech-demo more than enough ;)

Fractal worlds based on Perlin noise and its various derivatives using floating point have problems with precision once they start go lower than a certain tile level. OT can go down to centimeters, while they stop at tens of meters per vertices on an earth-sized planet. So they usually scale the objects, making the planet effectively smaller.

Looking at the water, will Outerra handle this kind of water?

Water has to be tuned up much better in OT, and extended its range of wave scales. My implementation is different from what people used here (Bruneton's code, I think), because that cannot effectively support shore hitting waves. It needs another iteration or two to make it better, remove artifacts etc.

Thx for the explanation Cameni. I am looking forward to the OT water progress!
