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.

really interesting! Outerra is a perfect simulation engine. I just wonder how that will feel in first person. In Armed Assault walking always felt kinda stiff. Like gliding and sliding, often.

Are you actually putting together a game, or is this going to be a techdemo of your engine. Either way, I must say I'm impressed!

So far it's a tech demo, but we definitely want to do a game on it as well.

Is this going to cost money to use (not a freeware license)?

I also need to ask, will vegetation (grass, trees, shrubs, flowers, etc.) become 3d models closer up?

Licensing is not yet determined but some kind of a free for non-commercial use is an option.

Vegetation will transition to models on close ups, we want this to be smooth without pop-ups, this will be shown when we perfect the technique.

So you're going to integrate tessellation?

what if you sold the liscence for a game to use the engine, so if they didnt have the liscence, you sued them, but if they had one, they would probobly spend say, a quarter of what you would sue the for, to "reccomend" that they buy the liscnece, but people who just want the engine to play the games, could get it for free?
