Another timelapse (4K). This one took about 2 days to complete for my computer, so things aren't superoptimised, and it also took quite a few hours to download the source video from the site (radio link).

Although not as much of a project as it is a Experiment, A few years back, I decided to see what could happen if space lightning hit a planet very earth-like, using the Powder Toy. The brush size was slightly bigger than the planet's moon, making the actual space lightning about the size of the Empire State Building. It, in 1 strike, destroyed a city. I then struck 5 times with the brush in the same spot. It made a huge crater. The pressure released destroyed a space station. That was where I closed the simulation. But what happened after the space stations destruction would be pretty interesting. What would happen is the Molten Stone would fill the crater and be forced into a spherical shape. It would harden and then form a new continenent.
EDIT: in case your saying "Damn, he's stupid" I only said that so you could see how wrong I was.

I'm pretty proud of the lens flare shader I implemented for the D3D9 Client for Orbiter Beta:


No textures used, it's all HLSL magic smile

Wwadlol, nice, but it's weird to see those civilians shooting the thing while staying completely still or almost. smile

Antza, I think these are your best flower/bees/notsobees shots yet. The level of detail is incredible!

And now I shall continue the tradition. Some snapshots from another week visiting the high country in colorful Colorado.

Antza2, I need a lens like that :(

Those pictures look superb

Watsisname, those are some really nice images. Never seen anything that interesting when flying before.

Watsisname, Looks cool area! i like how there is still some snow left even in the middle of the summer.
high mountains areas are the best in my opinion, for me its most beautiful landscape.
for Comparison, here mount hermon (highest mountain here) at winter and summer:

That altitude is noticeable if you go straight from low altitude. When I walked to the summit of Mauna Kea from the visitor centre, the first 1200 meters were easy but the last 200 altitude meters were exhausting and it was hard to talk straight to people up there. Some years later I drove all the way up, and it was ok since it was effortless. Also, at similar altitude around lake Titicaca the altitude was no problem since I'd already been a week in Peru mostly above 3000 m.

In Peru I had planned to get to 6000 m, but I got a bad cold and had to cancel that. sad

need to be carefull when you going to such height. need to rest for a night every 1000 meters or so.
heard lot of stories of ppl who tried to climb that, felt not good up there and died somehow.
probably because of no rest and not giving the body time to adapt.
so be carefull when you do it! you probably allready know it! wink

Yeah, that altitude is very noticeable, especially if reached quickly or with exertion. My first experience with being over 3000m was when flying from Santa Cruz (400m) to La Paz (4000m). The simple act of walking off the plane was enough to provoke gasps for breath. But driving up Mount Evans after spending several days in Denver was easy, and even hiking the rest of the way up to the summit wasn't bad at all. The altitude affected me more when I was merely climbing up ~2000m peaks like Vesper and Hardy, from being acclimated to sea level. Something about those last few hundred meters of gain is just brutal and an exercise of sheer willpower.

spacer, it's fascinating to me how the climate and ecology change so rapidly with altitude. Each 1000 meters of elevation gained is equivalent to moving between 1000 and 3000 kilometers poleward (varies by mountain range). In Colorado the treeline is very sharply evident at 3500m, and above that it's alpine tundra -- bare, windy and cold. Being in the mountains emphasizes just how thin our atmosphere really is.

And yes, it is also very important to be safe and cognizant of one's health at high altitude. Proper acclimatization is crucial, and so is awareness of serious issues like HAPE and HACE. If you feel like you can't catch your breath even when resting, that's not good, and neither is the feeling of being drunk or nauseous. altitude.org has great information.

Watsisname, will asthma has any effect when you go higher?
i have asthma from age 0. i breath ok daily until there its strike.
i read that in colder places, there is more asthma, and i wonder if height is a factor too
