The Triton Ocean SDK has some very accurate wave models built-in already, such as JONSWAP, Pierson-Moskowitz, and Tessendorf (which is really a Phillips spectrum.) By using GPU-accelerated Fast Fourier Transforms, we’re able to simulate over 65,000 individual waves at once...

The SilverLining Sky, Cloud, and Weather SDK offers a lot of control over the types, positions, and quantity of clouds in your virtual environment. But, sometimes it feels like you need a degree in meteorology to know how to set...

Our latest version of the Triton Ocean SDK features some big improvements in swells, choppy waves, and the effects associated with them. We even considered calling this Triton 3.0 – but we’ve got some other big features planned before we...
