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 10th, 2014

The past few weeks I've been playing around with the flight models and the warp drive. It's rewarding to see all the different ships interacting with each other. Battleships need a good 10 seconds to accelerate into a turn whilst frigates swarm around them.


Initially I wasn't planning to include warp but the sheer size of even our local space made it a necessity. Like in EVE Online your forward speed needs to exceed 3/4 of your max speed for warp to be available. For the moment warp speed is set at 1/10th the speed of light by default, and whilst in EVE Online you need a special jamming ship to inhibit warp movement, for the moment the plan is for any ship to be forced to drop out of warp the minute it is picked up by an enemy ship's radar. Radar range spans from 1 km to 250 km. This is because space is so much larger than in EVE Online that I need to discourage people from simply circumnavigating enemy fleets. It also means that even a Shuttle can have a useful effect on an enemy capital ship.

Media Update - To the Moon 10/08/14

I tested the warp drive by taking a trip to the moon in an Amarr Shuttle. It's to scale and orbits at an altitude of 384,000 km like the real thing.

how is this going to compare to the I-Novae engine?

Very impressive! I'd love to know what the licensing costs are for the engine.

All very nice and all, but I want to see some supercars driving down those roads!

Simply amazing. Will it support clouds, weather, rivers and waterfalls, dynamic lightning, day/night cycle, dynamic terrain deformation, more up-close details like grass, bushes, dirt and rocks? Will it only be able to support static models (think swaying trees). What is the performance impact of additionally added models? Say, would it be possible to have a city of thousands of buildings, cars and other items in this world. What price range will this be released at? Gettable for low budget indie-developers?

Yes, all those features are planned. Performance impact of additional models will depend on how good the LOD management on objects will be and how much resources their simulation itself will take.
The engine should eventually evolve into a platform that will support also indie developers, with some kind of royalties based licensing.

some of the scenery and lighting effects approach true photorealism. is this engine suited to humans or just vehicles?
