Abstract
In this paper, we present a system that has the ability to deform terrain for Real-time Strategy Game with general PC hardware specifications. Various effects could be simulated in real-time such as raising and lowering the ground, creating a large chasm, or levelling the terrain. Effects such as ordering a unit to fire that then destroys part of a mountain could also be replicated. We present our implementations and techniques in using terrain deformation algorithms, Real-time Optimally Adapting Meshes, texture design and terrain generations. An analysis of the speed and memory usage of the system with respect to different PC hardware systems is also presented.
