  2. Hello Captains, After an longer break without any news, here is a small update of the current status of the sim. After switching the engine to Unreal Engine 5 most of the core features are finished. The watercraft phyiscs and the ship controller are completely written for the new engine. Also ready to go is the weather engine and most features of the water. Thanks to the Unreal Engine, the sim comes with DirectX 12 and all the new features of UE5 like using Lumen, Nanite, Metasounds and Metahumans. Another great addition is the use of Raytracing and DLSS also for the UE version. But for the official release, I need to get a few things done. Currently I'm working on the vehicle selection / start location selection and the watercraft 2d / 3d panels. More news will follow soon... Regards Most of the 3d meshes using UE's Nanite feature. First and Third Person character with Metahumans. And also windows and some metal materials using Raytracing. Regards Marko
  3. Hey. Yes of course, new updates are around the corner.
  4. Hello, thank you. Yes, UE5 gives a lot more potential for the development of the sim as Unity. The main reason for me to change to UE5, was the 64bit (large world coordinates) support and all the cool stuff which you can use like Metahuman and the Quixel library. And I really like the graphics itself in UE. And yes, I will also release an free Alpha version of the UE based version of Across the Seas. Most of the things are done. The code base of the UE version is a complete rewrite in UE's Blueprint System and C++. So currently showstoppers for a release are the vehicle and start point selection system. Unfortunately, I'm a little bit behind my timeline, but I'm working hard to get the first public version ready for the release.
  5. Hello, ive seen that there is a version of across the seas in development that uses Unreal Engine 5 as base instead of Unity. Its a good idea to change to Unreal Engine. I think there are far more possibilities with Unreal than with Unity. The screenshots look very good and better than with the Unity based version. Will there also be an alpha of the Unreal Engine based version? I really would like to try the improved graphics and new game Engine by myself.
  6. Thanks for this great model. But I tried to use it for Virtual Sailor NG and the boats are floating around a few meters over the water. Is there anything I can do to get this to work?
