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.

Combat Visualisation 13/09/14

This Caldari fleet in orbit above Chile is actually quite small by EVE standards. At the moment the engine can sustain hundreds, possibly thousands, of objects and fleet battles in the final version will be as big as my computer can handle. Fleets will also have formations and structure instead of ships being randomly placed like above.

As we wait for the weapons API to be developed I thought I'd show you a representation of the weapon capabilities.

Combat Visualisation 13/09/14

A single Thorax class cruiser confronts the fleet. Like 95% of all the ships in the game it carries a mix of short range and long range weapons, with the choice between two loadouts that favours one range type over the other.

Combat Visualisation 13/09/14

I added translucent yellow cones to the barrels of the weapons, with the lengths representing the weapon's maximum range and the width its cone of fire. Weapon projectiles, typically only a few meters wide, will travel in a straight line at any angle from its emitter that lies within the confines of the cone. This means if the entirety of the cone's base is intersecting with a ship's hull it has a 100% chance of hitting it.

Combat Visualisation 13/09/14

As you can see in the images, some areas of the cone do not intersect with the enemy ships at all. This should help atmosphere immensely with balls of energy and streams of tracer rounds making close calls with your hull as you manoeuvre through battle. It also makes the distance from your target an important factor.

I also agree. I just played the demo and although I can barely run it, to say the least I found it amazing, truly amazing work you have here guys!.

Seems a lot of people can play the demo fine... I opened it, created an account, logged in and it's not giving an option to demo... I get 'pay $15' or 'cancel'.

You don't have to create an account at all to play demo. Just press that big "DEMO MODE" button. Once there's something written in the login name, it changes to "Login"

After trying the demo I'm still very impressed, I have one gripe and that's the stream times for data, it's partly my fault though, I have a very slow hard drive and my CPU is getting old, the rendering on land is rather sluggish, my GPU is quite top-end so I'm guessing my CPU is bottle-necking me.
I can think of some great applications for this tech, it would be brilliant to see where this goes in the future.

create an awesome HD creature creation with actual DNA so they can go off and evolve on their own, and you can have an EPIC spore clone here... I'd love to see what else could be done with this engine =]
edit: also minecraft building abilities. in HD. so much potential here =D

Are you planning real time terrain deformation? Imagine grabbing a spade and digging yourself a hole in this engine...

That, and if you could make a particle system that's good enough to match the rest of the engine, you would have one of the greatest possibilities ever, especially for war games.

Yes, realtime deformation is in the plan, the way the roads are done is also a type of terrain deformation. It just needs some additional support to make it realtime, with larger and more complex changes possibly hidden behind a particle cloud while the terrain gets reprocessed.
