Hello Captains, Here are some news of #AcrosstheSeas. Currently I'm working on the prototype of the sim in the upcoming Unreal Engine 5 (actually 5.1 ). Most of the work is at the moment to improve the watercraft physics in UE. One of the next things is to get back the 2d panel and the first person view. At the same time I'm working on the scenery design. For the first new demos of the sim, I will include all 3 sceneries that are also available in the current Unity alpha version. So Dover/Calais, Rostock Baltic Sea scenery and the harbor area of Cape Town will be included. The new 64bit floating precision in UE 5.1 works really good so far. So no more origin shifting for larger sceneries are necessary. This is really a big deal and this is the next step to allow very large sceneries. I did a first test with the an earth scaled planet done and it works really well. One of the most important thing is to find a good solution for wake effects in Unreal. This feature is currently completely missing in the sim. Thank you to all, for your amazing support. I will do my best, to get done a first Unreal demo of the sim. Regards Marko
Across the Seas - Alpha
Bartolomeus posted a topic in Across the Seas - AlphaHi Captains, For all who want to test Across the Seas - Unity3d based Ship Simulation, I have decided to release a alpha version. So I can get more feedback about the sim and especially about the performance. I will update this version during the development. Currently I have implemented the Dover Calais area. Most things in Calais are done and Dover is currently under development. Cape Town is in as a preview and also the shipyard scene. For the watercraft's, not all have currently a bridge interior or working instruments. Also features like the anchoring or mooring systems are not final and also in active development. And an important thing is are the physics, I changed a lot things here in the last weeks. So be aware of some strange behavior , I need to adjust the physics for the different watercraft's. Feel free to post shots of the sim or give feedback or suggestions here. Across the Seas - Alpha What is possible or not Test sails in Dover / Calais area Cape Town and a virtual shipyard is implemented as a preview Weather and Time of Day is ready No AI traffic or multiplayer No missions or career mode Minimap system needs a bit more details Mooring and anchoring are not ready Know Issues Watercraft physics need more adjustments Strange physics in some cases of higher sea states Not all watercraft's have interiors at the moment Not all watercraft's have lights Shallow water areas need a bit more work Harbor areas do not have colliders at the moment Mooring physics are not ready New FPS mode is currently in internal testing phase Download link: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AiiALzvCn_FFiZ09fMR6S0FgTHAwGg?e=BkbURZ Regards Marko
