Wow ... I am a sucker for wireframes. Love your entry.

Looks like the raindrops are synched to the music? Really cool.

Well done, mate!

That's right, the tricky bit was timing it so that the drops hit the water when the harp strings are plucked - but I think it works quite well now.

Excellent entry, very atmospheric!!  :clap:
Code looks nice and neat as well, good work there.

Maybe throw in a splash of colour where the drops hit?
Anyway awesome stuff!

--
I just find out that if you keep it running it in another tab in the background and switch back after a while, you get a torrent of drops all at once, which makes some nice and stormy waves!  8)

Also I'm about halfway through Stormbringer, good plug!

Thanks, guys :)

I wasn't sure if this would run slowly or not, but even my old XP laptop runs this at full speed - HTML5 has become quite fast!

I'll look into the colour suggestion, but I thought I'd go for a monochrome wireframe at first, as a homage to the classic PS1 wireframe game, "Vib Ribbon". There should be enough runtime in there to allow for the calculation of dynamic colours.

<plug>Also, I hope you're enjoying the book, Kirl.
I've released it as a paperback, so it should be up on Amazon very soon.</plug>

Using the height values of the points should create a smoothly colored rainbow grid, as a dutchman I can't resist that urge; I feel creatively limited by 16 million colours, what?  ;)

I really enjoy reading your book between all the goings on, it was put on hold during the confusing easter times..

Easter can be busy - maybe next Lent we could run an egg themed competition :D

Love the effect. It runs about 14 FPS on my i3 clocked down to 0.9 Ghz, with the profiler running.
