    I posted this link ages back but can't find the thread anywhere. We had a big discussion on modelling wind. Anyway - just a quick update I thought people might like to see, they have now added significant wave height and wave period to the model. In the 'Mode' tab, change it from Air to Ocean.

    I don't think this could be brought into the game, just thought it was a cool visualisation :aar

    Actually the underlying data for that graphic is pretty close to what we are working on for the weather in the game. Some of the previous news articles show the detail that has been gone into just in the modeling of the information.

    http://www.indiedb.com/games/hearts-of-oak/news/hearts-of-oak-news-6th-november-2014

    That shows one of the weather updates that is in progress. If the detail is like the current work is moving toward then we should have about the most accurate weather ever seen in a game.
