Planetary engine that can be used with real elevation data of arbitrary resolution, while being progressively enhanced by fractal algorithms. The fractal algorithms refine and introduce details down to centimeter resolution and can be parametrized by elevation and land class data. A completely random fractal terrain is possible too, or a terrain can be sketched in rough resolution with fractal generating the details. Level of detail ranges from thousands of kilometers down to centimeters, with full visibility. The engine is fully asynchronous, majority of the algorithms running on the GPU while the rest is distributed to multiple CPU cores.

About EVE:WORLD with 0 comments by Mob11 on Jul 29th, 2014

Ever mindful of the widening gap between updates I have put together a crude visualisation of a Caldari Manticore attacking a Gallente Erebus.


It's not that there's a shortage of content to showcase it's just that I have the mentality that new media should showcase new improvements and I'm reaching the upper limits of my "directing" skills for capturing footage in the Outerra engine.

Progress continues with hooking each ship's flight model and turret control into their respective models. No longer can I just copy and paste a code file to get the ship appearing in game, but each one now has to be gone through line by line to ensure that right gun barrel moves in the right direction, the sounds are the correct volume in proportion to the ship's size, glass cockpits are reflective and so on.

If you have any requests for what media you'd like to see in the next update then please post below.

EVE:WORLD is a free project that takes advantage of the Outerra engine's 1:1 scale rendition of Earth to bring you a planetary invasion simulator set...

Is the engine free for non-commercial use?

This would be great for mil sim type games (I'm thinking operation flashpoint style =) )

hm...could this engine in a futer form handle multipple planets (solar system) and if so could you have spaceships capable of carrying people (or cpu) to the other planets? and also, will this game be fps, tps, rts or a hybrid?or will it be up to modders?also, to go along with the solar system idea, could you make maps for certain mods if it is up to the modders to handle gameplay? and also, will this game hold full sized planets or downsized? lol i just wanted to know some stuff. also, nice physics, would it be possible to have obsourbant materials to obsorb shock from bullets, missils etc? such as water only...denser? also nice engine, hope you dont mind if i track

Multiple planets can be handled, and the planets can be full sized. This is just an engine, not a game, so many of your questions cannot be answered as they are specific to a game that will use the engine.

Oh thanks god. I've been looking for an engine capable of of handling a fully sized planet.I've finally found one. :D

If you can mod a game that uses this engine...how much/far can you mod? like almost open source or limited like half life 2?

Well I expect you'd be able to mod everything that the procedural engine uses as its inputs - height maps, land class maps, materials, vegetation mapping rules, fractal mixer coefficients etc. Also the models and such stuff. What could be moddable in game play and rules depends on the game itself, though.

No voxels there, but the terrain can be deformed and automatically re-textured so there can be craters etc.
