Scatterer is a graphical mod created primarily to add realistic atmospheric scattering to Kerbal Space Program.
The mod was subsequently extended with other graphical effects that add to the game's atmosphere and now covers the following:
Ocean shaders (with transparency, sky reflections, foam, refractions and underwater effects)
Better sunflare rendering
Godrays and terrain shadows
Visible eclipse shadows
This will be a long post so grab some snacks
I have been working on implementing a new godray technique:
Some of you might remember I used to have godrays in scatterer a while back, well that implementation was flawed and had many issues, here is a direct comparison between the old and new technique.
The old technique was only getting the "outer surface", and couldn't handle overlapping rays and get the real depth, it also often had gaps.
