“Azimut-Alliance” develops ATC automation systems software with UNIGINE

Each employee of the air traffic control tower (ATC) controls up to several dozen aircraft per hour. But before taking such a huge responsibility, controllers spend tens of hours on simulators, practicing every possible situation and getting accustomed to new procedures.

We are delighted to be involved in the training of air traffic controllers thanks to our partners, the “Azimut-Alliance” company (a part of the “Azimut” company), a developer of controller working positions and software for ATC automation systems.

Explore New Vegetation Features in UNIGINE 2.8

Vegetation plays a huge role in different scenarios: outdoor scenes, architectural visualization, and even aircraft simulations. In UNIGINE 2.8, we introduced a number of improvements to our greenery look more immersive and convincing. Here we’d like to share our progress on the visual quality of vegetation objects: trees, bushes, grass, etc.

  • Better Impostors with Depth Texture
  • Updated Subsurface Scattering (SSS) for Leaves and Grass
  • Natural Tree Topology with Angle Fade and Rotate Normals Options
  • Improved Anti-Aliasing

Check the video preview from the upcoming demo and see a short breakdown of the latest features!

New Video Tutorial: Physics

Unlike many other engines using third-party solutions, UNIGINE has its own built-in physics module. It is capable of simulating different types of physical interactions and impacts. The module provides support for gravity and collision detection, friction and bouncing, buoyancy and two-way water interaction, joints with motors and springs, procedural destruction, external physical forces, etc. Moreover, thanks to the support of double precision coordinates, planet-scale virtual worlds with correct physics can be created.

Check out our new detailed video tutorial and learn how to create dynamic physical objects and empower your virtual worlds with life-like physical effects.

New Video Tutorial: Water

We know that lifelike-looking and physically correct water simulation with complex behaviour is crucial for many projects. That’s why UNIGINE provides geometry waves with a correct Beaufort scale 0-12, ship wake waves, caustics effect, shoreline simulation, and underwater mode out-of-the-box.

Moreover, we are going to introduce the real-scale round planet Earth solution soon with bathymetric data added, therefore, physics simulation in UNIGINE is as close to reality as possible.

Check out our new detailed tutorial covering the basics of creating lifelike water in UNIGINE. Learn all the available features, options, and effects, visualize a realistic virtual environment, and raise your simulator to a new level of immersion!
