Heat haze shader effect. Great for meteor impacts, fire and atmosphere generators. :)

Will this be before or after you open up preorders? I keep throwing money at the screen but nothing's happening.

Welcome to the Maia Community Kevok,
I was throwing money at my screen back in Nov 2012 when I found Maia, I started clicking an empty spot on my desktop that is reserved for the MaiaAlpha.exe about the same time.
Since then Simon has run his kickstarter and IndieGogo crowdfunding campaigns.
The project has moved along really nicely in that time, but patience is required.

Oh, nice. At first I thought it was just some kind of smoke overlay, but then I saw it distorting half of the IMP.

Huh, looks like it should drop off much more quickly, it looks a bit much like smoke at the moment IMO.

Nice shader. :)

Though it seems just marginally too thick and watery for heat haze.

Heat haze tends to blur and distort the environment behind it, at the very least makes the area appear out of focus. Whilst if you look at the I.M.P behind that heat haze effect there is no observable change, it just gets masked by semi-transparent oily substance.

It seems a bit jerky and flickering to me, but I guess the .gif is causing that.

Very pretty.
(I do hope it will be more 'fluid/flowing/shimering' in the game than the 'distortion-epilepsy' the gif currently displays on my screen).

Really loving the fact that this game is going to be something like a RTS set inside a thermodynamics sim.
