Unigine::ObjectWaterMesh Class

Header:#include <UnigineObjects.h>
Inherits:Object

Interface for object water mesh handling. The water mesh can have four sine waves. The object is used to create small water basins such as ponds, lakes and so on. ObjectWaterMesh has physics support, so it can have a body assigned, therefore, it can interact with other scene objects.

Constructor. Creates a new water mesh object from a specified file.

Arguments

  • const char * name - Path to the water mesh.

Ptr<ObjectWaterMesh> cast(const Ptr<Object> & base)

Casts an ObjectWaterMesh out of the Object instance.

Arguments

  • const Ptr<Object> & base - Pointer to Object.

Return value

Pointer to ObjectWaterMesh.

Return value

Pointer to ObjectWaterMesh.

void setFieldMask(int mask)

Sets a field mask specifying the area of the Field node to be applied.

Arguments

  • int mask - An integer value, each bit of which is used to set a mask.

int getFieldMask()

Returns the mask specifying the area of the applied Field node.

Return value

The integer value, each bit of which sets a mask.

float getHeight(const Math::Vec3 & position)

Returns a height offset of a given point relatively to the water mesh surface.

Arguments

  • const Math::Vec3 & position - The point position coordinates.

Return value

Height offset of the point.

int setMesh(const Ptr<Mesh> & mesh)

Permits reinitialization of the water mesh object: copies a given mesh into the current water mesh.

Arguments

  • const Ptr<Mesh> & mesh - The mesh smart pointer.

Return value

1 if the mesh is copied successfully; otherwise, 0.

int getMesh(const Ptr<Mesh> & mesh)

Copies the current water mesh into the received mesh.

Arguments

  • const Ptr<Mesh> & mesh - The received mesh smart pointer.

Return value

1 if the mesh is copied successfully; otherwise, 0.

void setMeshName(const char * name)

Sets a new name for the water mesh.

Arguments

  • const char * name - A new name to be set for the water mesh.

const char * getMeshName()

Returns the name of the current water mesh.

Return value

The mesh name.

Math::vec3 getNormal(const Math::Vec3 & position)

Returns the normal vector of a given point (used to orient objects along the waves normals).

Arguments

  • const Math::Vec3 & position - The point position coordinates.

Return value

Normal vector.

void setWave(int num, const Math::vec4 & wave)

Sets parameters for one of four simulated water waves.

Arguments

  • int num - Wave number in range [0;3].
  • const Math::vec4 & wave - Wave parameters:
    • The X and Y components containing the velocity of the wave.
    • The Z component containing the frequency.

  • The X and Y components containing the velocity of the wave.
  • The Z component containing the frequency.
  • The W component containing the amplitude.

void setWaveAngle(int num, float angle)

Sets direction (angle of spreading) for a given wave:
  • If 0 is specified, the wave spreads along the Y axis and is parallel to the X axis.
  • If a positive value is specified, the wave direction is slanted counterclockwise relative to its initial spread.
  • If a negative value is specified, the wave is rotated clockwise.

Arguments

  • int num - Wave number in range [0;3].
  • float angle - Angle, in degrees. Both positive and negative values are acceptable.

float getWaveAngle(int num)

Returns direction (angle of spreading) of a given wave.

Arguments

  • int num - Wave number in range [0;3].

Return value

Angle, in degrees.

void setWaveHeight(int num, float height)

Sets the distance between the highest and the lowest peaks for the given wave. It sets the wave form along with the setWaveLength()function. The higher the value is, the higher the waves are.

Arguments

  • int num - Wave number in range [0;3].
  • float height - Height, in units.

float getWaveHeight(int num)

Returns the distance between the highest and the lowest peaks for the given wave.

Arguments

  • int num - Wave number in range [0;3].

Return value

Height, in units.

void setWaveLength(int num, float length)

Sets the distance between successive crests for the given wave. The higher the length value is, the broader the waves are.

Arguments

  • int num - Wave number in range [0;3].
  • float length - Length, in units.

float getWaveLength(int num)

Returns the distance between successive crests of the given wave.

Arguments

  • int num - Wave number in range [0;3].

Return value

Length, in units.

void setWaveSpeed(int num, float speed)

Sets a speed for a given wave. The higher the value, the faster waves follow each other.

Arguments

  • int num - Wave number in range [0;3].
  • float speed - Speed, in units per second.

float getWaveSpeed(int num)

Returns the speed of a given wave.

Arguments

  • int num - Wave number in range [0;3].
