  1. Performance is not that bad. Calais with surrounded ~70k buildings and a high visibility and around 90-100 fps on my notebook setup. Shallow waters also implemented for harbor areas. No more high waves in harbors. Early morning in Calais. Random shots.
  2. Thinking about to switch to Unity's HD Renderpipeline. 🤨

  3. Hi and Welcome here at VTA, you can take a look at Roberts website. The scenery should be available there. https://robsvsfaddons.weebly.com/ Regards Marko
  4. Here is the newest vessel for the fleet of Across the Seas. The Global Emerald an medium sized AHTS vessel. Marko
  5. Small break from scenery works. Need to test the new Post Processing effects. I think the color saturation looks better now, the same for the reflections on the water surface. Marko
  6. Rain effect is back working. Also removed rain inside the watercraft interior and added a basic rain effect to the windows. Looks good so far and performance is also great. I found and removed also the annoying performance bug. So only point on the to-do list is to get both sceneries (Dover / Calais & Cape Town) a little bit more done for the alpha release. Marko
  7. Hi Captains, Some shots from the sim. The new weather looks perfect and more natural. Also the new volume lighting looks great. Only two major showstoppers are left, before the public alpha version goes live. An anoying performance bug and I need to integrate the new Dover Port for the Dover - Calais scenery. Regards Marko
  8. Calais - Work in Progress Outbound Calais and heading for Port of Dover. Marko
  9. Here is a nice Across the Seas teaser for the upcoming alpha version. The teaser is created by TheFreaks.
  10. Thank you, I plan to release the public alpha during the last quarter of this year.
  11. Hi Captains, The thrusters are now implemented in the sim. So, you can now safely mooring the ship. Sry for the untextured scenery objects. It's the Dover/Calais scenery and it's Work in Progress. The new minimap system is also done. I removed the realtime map. The system is now a picture based minimap system. So it allows me, to paint the minimap to create an look like a real nautical chart. And it gives also an performance boost of 15fps .
  12. Hi All, Across the Seas is also shown in the newest Simul's (the creators of trueSKY) Blog Post. You can take a look here:
  13. Hi Captains, We have now also an Discord Channel. So you can follow our project and mainly the development of Across the Seas at Discord. Regards Marko
  14. Across the Seas anchor physics test. A few things need to be tweaked like the anchor mass or the colliders for the anchor. But so far, it works and looks good.
  15. Across the Seas, now with a new water engine and better weather effects.

  16. Sneak peek of the new wake effect, still need a few things to setup but it looks really nice.
  17. Now added planar reflection to the water engine. Crest Ocean asset looks really cool.
  18. Testing the watercraft physics with Crest ocean. Looks really nice so far. Also to see is an update to the weather engine.
  19. A first look of the new water displacement for the watercrafts that comes with the new water system. It's not final yet, but it looks really promising. The new water has also a much better performance and it's now possible to increase the visibility without getting artefacts.
  20. Hey Captains, After upgrading Across the Seas to Unity 2019. Some of the assets that I'm using are broken. And after the depreciation of Ultimate Water System, I need to take a look for an alternative water system and I chose Crest for the simulator. First steps are done, watercrafts physics are integrated, trueSKY works also better with Crest. Here is a shot with Crest.
  21. The integration of voice recognition for Across the Seas is almost finished.

  22. Hey Captains, I'm working on voice recognition for standard ship control commands. Also a suggestion from an facebook user, to expand these commands to an AI bridge officer who then execute these orders. What do you think, a useful or more useless feature?
  23. I have decided to change the large Container Ship model to an better looking and nice modeled one. So here is the new Container Ship for Across the Seas. It is currently with largest ship in Across the Seas along with the Ocean Star cruise ship. Marko
