This is something I put together to see if I could create an experience of being on board the RMS Titanic. I created this to coincide with 103rd anniversary of the Titanic disaster.
Here’s a video of the experience:
This is all Unity 5, with realtime global illumination (GI). This was pretty tricky because I wanted the ship to eventually sink and go beneath the water, but with pre-calculated indirect GI, it was impossible to move the ship into the water. So what I did, was move the water, onto the ship! The result is very effective.
Try it out for yourself! can you survive the sinking? Check it out here. This is the Unity webplayer, not WebGL. The WebGL version is coming soon.
