CryEngine 3 Soft-Body Physics Preview Realistic Video Game Car Crashes [Video]
Crytek, the makers of the Crysis videogame franchise has put a lot of time and money into their own gaming engine. The latest iteration is called CryEngine 3 and they’ve done some amazing stuff in the realism field.
This latest architecture allows game developers to engineer realistic environments, more so than ever before. The engine also has this feature, called soft-body physics, it allows for more realistic damage to vehicle.
This video was created by the team behind Ring of Rods, an open-source driving simulator. This is early work, so there are shakes and rubber-like bounces, but it’s promising and the damage doesn’t look repetitive like in the current games.
“Anything can be built in the Beam physics system - cars, trucks, planes, boats, trains, cranes, tanks, helicopters, and even destructible map objects and crash test dummies. It's all real physics. Anything is possible,” Beamng.com.
