For the past few weeks Ryokeen has been hard at work adding and optimizing shaders for ESF. One of the latest additions is a wave generator. The new shader gives ESF environment artists the option to add ocean like water to maps.

During initial tests the ocean shader has shown a performance increase over the older "flat" water shader. The system uses a grid of approximately 50K polygons to generate the waves. This can be reduced to meet the performance requirements of lower-end machines. Also, the system implements a level of detail system that increases the amount of detail a player sees the closer they get to the water.

What did the ocean say to the other ocean? Nothing, it just waved.

Besides that hilarious joke up there... Amazing water, great quality... and I think we all love a friendly ocean. (waving)

Imagine If the ocean literally waved and I mean a water arm and hand forms and waves at you. XD
