One of the most fun things about SimBlob is the water simulation. It isn't great though, and I keep looking for ways to make it better. Using the Navier-Stokes equations is the “right” way to simulate fluids, but they're complicated and expensive, so many people have come up with approximations or alternatives. Here are some resources:

None of their solutions directly works for me, since I'm using a hexagonal grid and have a dynamic landscape underneath the water.

[2005-07-11] Update: I tried some approaches based on the above, but they didn't work for me. It's quite possible that I'm missing an essential step in my simplification.

I visited your site a long time back when you had described your own way of simulating water. You had used simple level(land height + water height) based rules to decide which way water would flow. Would it be possible for you to put that page up/mail it to me?

(I programmed and it did not work very well)
