Very well, thanks... very well indeed! Suffice it to say, OLCE2 definitely lives up to the "2"
Should be ready soon... a couple more days...

Way cool. So are you going to bundle OLCE2 and the new OLC GUI into one package?

I'll release them at the same time but there will be two downloadable mods; one combining OLCE2 and the special version of OLC GUI, and another which is a standalone version of OLCE2 without the GUI.

What do you mean:hmm: August 2009. Is it a joke?

Yes its a joke.

It will be ready soon, hopefully. There's a lot of stuff in it. The combimod will be my "masterpiece" for SH3 (in my own eyes at least ) so I want to get it right.

If you thought OLCE1 was an improvement, then OLCE2 will blow you away.

Not much longer...

Default OLCE2 Preview - Clear Weather

Clear weather is finished, so I'm showing a preview.

This preview video shows 48 hours of clear weather in a sea states varying from 0m/s to 15m/s. The view is a "fish eye" view, in order to show as much of the sky as possible. The video was captured on the Naval Artillery training mission, which takes place about 55 degrees north of the equator in summer, which means the night never quite reaches full darkness and the day never quite reaches full brightness, but in both cases they come pretty close, so you see almost the full day/night cycle here.

You'll also see a glimpse of the new wave textures, though they don't look so great at 1024TC through a fish eye lens, so I'll post a seperate preview of those using normal TC and a normal camera.

Note that the U-boat reflection is only absent because SH3 doesn't display it at 1024TC.

Very cool. Little too fast, but very nice. Thanks.

I just wanted to say here, expressing my opinion.... that....


I HATE FILEFRONT!

The movie won't load or download... 15 minutes trying already... rapidshare is the future!

EDIT: Ok, I've managed to download and watch it. OLC, with all do respect, 1024x TC is not a nice way of showing your environment. I mean, we can all see that its beautiful and the sun going down is an unique experience, but we cant compreend how are the waves and the uboat behavior in those waves. How about 4 videos, one to zero wind, one to 4ms wind, one to 8ms wind and one to 15ms wind? You can record just 15 seconds of each and merge all into one single 1 minute video. Each 15 seconds you can give us a 360 rotation on the uboat, I think it will be superb! But so far from what I managed to see, your mod looks perfect... I won't have to edit my waves at all, I think... =)

It's the first of several videos. That one is designed to show the skies and overall lighting. More will follow.

4 seems to be the best balance.
