TurbulenceFD Tests: Buoyancy

Buoyancy is a setting in TurbulenceFD that causes our fluid sim to rise or sink.

When I saw the setting labeled Buoyancy inside TurbulenceFD I instantly did the a word association with it thought of “float.” I grew up in Florida and went out on the water a lot and passed countless actual buoys, those floating water markers usually covered in seagull crap, barnacles, or in one case when I was out west in California, sea lions.buoy

So my intuition was right with regards to the buoyancy setting and what it would do to my flame in TurbulenceFD. It controls how much the flame rises or floats.  The default value is set to 20, and if we increase or decrease the value we get some different results that may help you get the look you’re going for. Overall I feel like it’s a good setting to adjust how subdued or aggressive your flame will appear. Take a look at the video and see for yourself.
