First case when the sphere is in the exact center of the view, second case otherwise.

Ecstatica was using static camera angles. So, they were able to use a lot of precalculations for ellipsoid rendering.

Unfortunately, I haven't watched that DOS demo. But I'd like to watch it if someone remembers which demo it is.

Hello: It doesn't. At least using the traditional projection.

No tech details but it shows the potential.

Well, I don't have any news about the demo, but did you know that there was another game in development which used ellipsoid technology calle Urban Decay? The project was stopped, unfortunately. What a shame, because it looked so damn good. Also Estatica II was in development, but I can't remember if it was ever released.

Ecstatica II was released because I have it :)
