Across the Seas - Unreal Engine


Recommended Posts

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.
