      Hi!
      We're currently two programmers and a game designer working on a turn-based tactics fantasy board game. For reference you can search for images of "Tactics Arena Online", a fairly dated game that used to have a lot of depth and complexity.
      Our goal is to use the same combat concepts, but giving it a much needed modern touch as well as a whole new set of heroes to choose from with additional abilities. The game is a mix of isometric and 3D and we plan to release the game on Steam and hopefully Android & iOS as well.
      We are looking for someone to work with us pro-bono (just like we're doing) as a 3D character artist. The skills needed are creativity, a hard working attitude and an ability to make minor animations (things like idle, walk, block and very rudimentary attack animations). A perk to have would be the ability to make some VFX. If the game makes it on steam and money starts coming in, you'd obviously be compensated for your hard work, but as it stands this is a hobby project to garnish your portfolio.
      A bit more about the game:
      This game will be an online multiplayer game where each user gets to pick up to 10 characters to place on his half of the board (this would be done before even entering matchmaking. Think runes in League of Legends for example). The user can place his 10 units of choice anywhere he likes on his half board. Some units can be used more than once. So if you want 4 knights and 2 mages or even if you want 10 clerics, you can do as you please. You can then save your setups for future use. The goal of the game is to wipe out the enemy team.
      Each character or Hero (except premium and abyss characters) start with 1 ability and they can ascend (either by playing a certain amount of matches with the character or by forcing the ascension with real money) to gain a new ability or passive. Acquiring a new character can be done by using in-game currency that you earn from playing matches or using real money with the exception of Abyss characters which can only be acquired by winning certain rare matches. The goal is to offer a freemium game with lots of customizable elements while making sure that no user can "buy power" with real money. We want everything that a paying user can get to be available to non-paying users who play the game a lot.
      Ultimately we want this to become a competitive game that people can enjoy and really get invested in. Each character is designed with options for counterplay in mind and synergy with other heroes.
       
      We sincerely believe in what this game can become and we home to find someone just as passionate as we are to get involved in this project!

         Hello , i would like to showcase my first game project, a simple endless casual arcade game called Apples Mania : Apple Catcher. The game has simple goal , scoring as high as possible by collecting falling apples while the difficulty gradually increases. Different apples are worth different amount of points and there are also 2 power-ups to help you in your challenge.
        The game took me about 2 months to complete and polish and i made everything except for the music tracks and some of the sound files. Made in unity and blender3d.
        Would appreciate any kind of feedback.
      Google Play Link

I trying to build a ocean using OpenGL. and there are two versions 

 

http://evasion.inrialpes.fr/~Eric.Bruneton/ (using openGL but this one does not work because the shader problem , I try the fix it but I can't  )

and another one is 

http://scrawkblog.com/2013/06/04/ocean-with-brdf-lighting-in-unity/   (this one works but using Unity and he said he didn't implement BDRF, but it will take me a while to convert to openGL)

 

Assume you are a junior programmer  which one would you recommend you to use as a main reference?

I have a reason why I'm asking this ,I won't explain it because it will take me half a page.

The one that suits your goals/ needs best. For both options you would have to make them fit and (at least partially) understand.

You don't want to write half a page because .... you are lazy ?

It will be tough implementing a nice ocean system if you are that lazy.

Choose, either you don't care about sharing what you do, or you care and you write your half page. Half a page is nothing, read at least the papers you linked, how many pages do they have ? how many months you think it took those researchers to do their work AND cherry on top, write about it and share it publicly ?

Meanwhile, what are you doing ?

Next to what is already stated above, your reasoning will likely also aid us in helping you find a proper answer, so do take your time to explain, not only will this make it easier for us to aid you, but to also give you decent advice on related topics or even give you some better sources.

 

Also, don't limit yourself to just 1 reference, get multiple sources, study them and (try to) understand their reasoning for choosing whatever solution they implemented and how they implemented it.

It doesn't matter if it's done in Unity, plain OpenGL, DirectX or whatever engine or framework. What matters is you understand the underlying algorithm so you can implement it in your own engine/framework or existing software.

 

It's also worth noting that the 2 links above apparently focus on 2 different aspects of the ocean rendering. Where Eric Bruneton is apparently focusing on the lighting model, the Unity port initially just focused on getting the ocean "feel". 

 

With all this in mind, it will probably already help a lot if you simply state your goal, what are you trying to achieve?

 

And to finally also give an answer to your question: I would keep both and keep searching for more references.
