Watch The Titanic Sink In Real Time

Watch The Titanic Sink In Real Time
In Eerie Animated Recreation

This is our full-length animation of the Titanic sinking, beginning with the iceberg collision and ending with its disappearance. The point of collision is at 1:06 in the video.

This is a complete animation; not a short animation that was slowed down to match real time. This is also highly accurate, though we have already documented improvements we plan to make for the final game.

The animation includes text frequently appearing with what is happening on board the ship. This also includes visuals of various interior rooms flooding, lifeboats launching, rockets firing, and the Californian on the horizon.

This animation is, however, a bit rough around the edges. Some details, like guy wires and boat falls, are not rendered, and a few other things might appear glitchy, incomplete, or animations a little bumpy. In order to release this video in time for the 2016 anniversary (April 14/15), we needed to hastily render this. It's not easy working with a nearly 3 hour video file! Also, this video may only be in 360p in the hours immediately after upload. Please give Youtube time po process it. Hopefully it'll be available up to 720p by the night of the 14th.

The animation was created in Unreal Engine 4. The exterior model used is not our final model, but an older model created by one of our team members.

The Titanic struck an iceberg late at night on April 14, 1912, and sank some 2 hours and 40 minutes later, early on the morning of April 15 — and thanks to this animated recreation, you can watch the whole thing unfold in real time
This simulation includes the iceberg strike, the ship coasting to a halt in the North Atlantic about 20 minutes later, lifeboats being lowered into the water and even scenes of flooding in the interior corridors. 
Along with showing the ship sinking in real time, the simulation has captions describing what was happening aboard the ship at specific times, as well as anecdotes about some of her passengers. 
Some 1,500 people — more than two-thirds of the ship’s total population — died when Titanic sank. However, the animation shows no people. 
It’s as if an empty ship is sinking, which somehow makes it even eerier. 
Check it out in the clip above, created with Unreal Engine 4 to promote an upcoming game called “Titanic: Honor and Glory.”

Titanic At 100: Mystery Solved 
(Full Documentary)

As the 100th anniversary of Titanic's sinking approaches, a team of scientists, engineers, archaeologists and imaging experts have joined forces to answer one of the most haunting questions surrounding the legendary disaster: Just how did the "unsinkable" ship break apart and plunge into the icy waters of the North Atlantic?
