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 1 comment by Mob11 on Aug 16th, 2015

In between engine updates I have started work on basic path-finding for the AI. It can get a little frustrating juggling vectors in 3D but I have already created an auto-targeting function for ship turrets.

I'm also close to finishing the waypointing AI ships will use to travel between destinations. It works much the same as the turret function except it treats Earth as the "ship" and the ship as a turret mounted on its surface. I'm sketching out an AI Overseer function for controlling battles. This function will compile a database of all ships in the current session, their positions, their relative distances between each other, their health in terms of how many salvos from each ship it would take to destroy them, etc so that ships can decide who best to attack first or, if necessary, flee.

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.
