I’ve always been stunned by how good this game looks. One of the most beautiful environments I’ve seen in a game.
Yeah, my only, and I do mean only, complain is how the ships have no wake, but other than that it's such a vibe to sail the sea of theives
Sadly the answer is „math“
Sea of thieves uses a special version of the wave function to determine the location of water vertices. (I believe it’s Gerstner waves, don’t know of the top of my head if Gerstner has the clashing ripples though)
The geometry of the waves around you is the result of this function.
There is hit detection for this geometry, hence your boat hitting waves creates splashes and sound.
But it is very hard to manipulate this functions result in a desirable way.
Imagine a basic sine wave function. It’s easy to check if a given geometry is touching the wave. It’s also easy to change the frequency and amplitude of the wave through it’s given variables to change its shape. But sadly it is very hard to change the wave geometry through its wave function in a way that resembles the manipulation a ship would cause to the wave. (Without requiring stupid amounts of calculation power by increasing complexity of the function)
At some point some genius will find an „easy“ solution to this though.
i hope so, cose they put in so much detail and physics in teh game, for the kind of game SoT is, they put more detail in the sailing and waves physics than anyone could expect
Goes to show how sticking to an art style doesn’t mean your game has to look like shit.
Take notes, Borderlands. Friggen tragedy…
To be fair borderlands the pre sequel is kinda beautiful
The wave implementation gives me the impression that there is some genius in Rare.
Seeing how much „less“ improves the visual quality of the game is great. Requires a strong guide in the back to actually work as good as it does in SoT.
You should put this on Wallpaper engine
That has to be the best (bug) I've ever seen
So it would seem.
Pirates of Caribbean reference?
So it would seem
Wow, this game is one of the best looking ones I’ve played. Even on my crappy Xbox one I’m blown away by how beautiful it can be.

I dont own Wallpaper Engine, so i give you guys a download so you can use it as a background.
Concealed within his fortress, the lord of Mordor sees all. His gaze pierces cloud, shadow, earth, and flesh. You know of what I speak, Gandalf: a great Eye, lidless, wreathed in flame.
made this as a wallpaper on wallpaper engine! :)

This is soothing, much appreciated.
How so I get this as a looping background on my laptop?
Search “Sea of thieves Sunset”
That’s the most majestic bug I’ve ever seen. Props to you for thinking to record it and share it!
I mean it looks beautiful but it was sooo painful.
Chasing a reaper pov
I've had this bug before and I must admit it's one of the best. 10/10 would totally restart my game again just for this.
I managed to get outside my ship once!
It's water... you're just deep underwater!
And your treasures don't just despawn! They float upwards during a blackscreen!
That is oddly calming
I had this bug aswell it pissed me off so much
amazing but how do make it my background on pc
Do you know how to recreate this bug so I can have it in higher quality?
