Looks very good, but i just hope it doesn't eat up resources on older PC. If i could have at least 20 FPS playing this, i'd be happy :D

Now this is what I'm talking about! Excellent ocean shader! This is going to be so awesome! And to those who are afraid that this game will be a little too taxing on their hardware, well maybe this'll be a good reason to upgrade the ol' rig aye?^^
But awesome job guys, beautifully done, really!!

Hammie has been hard at work improving the game's ocean shader, so here's another update to feast your eyes on. It's a significant improvement on the previous version, but obviously the water doesn't stretch to the horizon yet.
We will soon be turning our attention to getting a working ship in the game engine, so watch this space!
