Real-Time Simulation of Large Bodies of Water with Small Scale Details

leave a comment »

I should highlight this rather useful paper(pdf).

It discusses issues faced when building a 2D heightfield fluid simulator (see my former post about the bare bones simulator I added to my engine).  What is so useful is that it provides many references and nuggets of information needed to extend a basic simulator to increase stability and improve interaction with other systems.

Thankfully it contains only a minimum amount of GPU Compute marketing:-)
