Crest Ocean System HDRP

Crest is a technically advanced, feature rich ocean system targeted at PC and console platforms, authored by professional game developers.


All proceeds are invested back into new features to add to our growing list:

Simulated light transport including reflection, refraction, scattering, caustics approximation, shadows
Wavey water with innovative ‘equalizer’ style wave authoring. Both FFT and ‘Gerstner’ approaches supported.
Query water displacement using GPU or CPU
Dynamic wave simulation (‘ripple sim’) for dynamic object-water interaction including boat wakes
Innovative ‘wave spline’ tech to give detailed control over water simulation including rivers, lakes and shorelines
Shallow water – light scattering and wave attenuation
Apply colour onto ocean surface similar to decals (also supports HDRP Decals)
Foam simulated from waves and shorelines
Manipulate ocean data (like foam) using mesh, trail, line and particle renderers.
Underwater effect with partial submersion and meniscus
Water volumes which can restrict rendering of both surface and underwater to a given geometry (eg sphere of water)
Shader Graph nodes for applying underwater to transparent objects
Flow to enable horizontal motion of water volume
Physics interface with simplistic buoyancy implementations and support for Dynamic Water Physics 2
Flexible time synchronisation to support networking and cutscene Timelines
Surface clipping to carve hulls/caves out of water surface
Ocean Shader Graph (2021.2 only)
Ray-Traced Reflections support (2021.2 only)
Decals supported
Screen-Space Reflections supported
VR/XR supported (both Multi-Pass and Single Pass Instanced)
Deferred and Forward rendering supported
Perspective and Orthographics rendering supported
Several example scenes covering many use cases
Detailed helpboxes display validation errors direct in the Inspector with fix buttons to guide setup
Online documentation with embedded videos
