I have discovered many bugs in the engine, this is extra work, and is going to take more of my time....

I am looking forward to your next version. Hope you can solve the many bugs in the forseeable future!

One request from my side:
Could you add a dialog box in the F1 menu -> Time for setting a specific date in time? Something where we can enter time with specific Hours:Minutes; Day:Month:Year so we don't have to use time acceleration (+reverse) to get to the desired point in time?

Thanks!

I fixed a small error that caused was a big disadvantage: Tiny landscape nodes (greatest level of detail) have too big initial BBoxes, that makes them visible from very long distances. The node's BBox recalculates node generation by using actual node height values, and become smaller than initial BBox, so nodes may not be rendered. So at LOD 0...3 the engine generate too many small nodes, but does not render them. I made a more accurate calculation of initial BBox, so now it is possible to use LOD 0 and even LOD 1. When engine starts at surface level of planet, it takes 28 seconds to generate all landscape at LOD 0 and it consumes only 300 Mb of VRAM in Full HD screen resolution.

Now I'm going to improve landscape engine. By using "fast landscape loading" feature and improving of color texture generation (by using previously generated height map instead of it's generation again) I obtain only... 6 seconds for "clear" generation of planet at surface level at LOD 0! But fast landscape loading algorithm is still buggy, so I must debug it before new version is released. The second improvement (using previously generated height map) makes it impossible to obtain "deep/shallow water" color of oceans and gives artifacts at coastline. So to use it, I must implement normal water layer with underwater landscape and "underwater fog" effect. And 3D waves.... smile Of course, all of this delays release of new version. But I can leave landscape generation unoptimized if you wish...

Next, I play with "Ridged multifractal noise" parameters and obtain much nicer looking mountains (these images are at LOD 0):





Then I subtract ridged multifractal term instead of adding it I get nice hills, which looks like water erosion:



I will try to add these hills to a terra surface generation shader and combine it with simple hills, mountains etc.
And here is a bonus screen:

That's amazing! Really looking foward to it.
Any chance we'll se canyons on next version?
It is hard to implement some kind of "ripple" effect on thick atmospheres? It could really increase the realism

Those are some nice images. Can't wait to see them in next release of SE. Great work as usual. I love seeing all these new developments. cool

@Rodrigo: I would still like to know about canyon worlds too. I had a quick check back at our suggestions, speculating the exisitence of such exo-planets, such as Kepler 10b [in this thread here], but I see we've had no further responses to those last questions. So AFAIK I'm assuming we won't have canyon worlds in SE.
