Water Surface and Rendering -- Ocean and Krauss_Sturm
Two extra shots
Abstract

Did you ever want to ride on a boat? Of course you did. This project is even better. Now you can be the boat, and use the arrow keys to move around on an ocean world full of fish and birds. There is even a Pier. It gets even better! Did we mention that it is a ghost-boat? That is why you can even move through all the structures on the map (and totally not because collision-detection is not implemented).
