Water Tech

The classic proprietary physics engine Forts is known for has received a major upgrade with the addition of the new water system. Ships float with true buoyancy, listing to one side if off-balance. Any structure not connected to a reactor will sink to the ocean floor unless reconnected swiftly. The ocean surface features its own set of splash FX, water and bubbles particles, underwater explosions and sound effects. This tech opens up a whole new world of possibilities of gameplay and modding to an already very satisfying physics-based experience!
