I didn't explain where it came from, I just experimented until I found a formula that was linear (since I can't do sqrt in my head) that was close enough to the answers from the other formula, in the range of scenarios that are likely to matter in most gaming. With airplanes or whatever it will become way off.<br /><br />Secondly, why didn't use the half heights of things? I skipped the explanation.<br /><br />The formulas in the post tell us at what point something "is visible", but this just means the point at which it -starts- to poke above the horizon.<br /><br />A 100' tower is level with the horizon when it is 8 miles away, but nobody will spot it then because the whole tower is still below the horizon. I figure people had a chance to see it once half of the tower is above the horizon.<br /><br />If you want a direct line of sight between the tops of two 100' towers (for a laser relay or whatever), you would use the full height. But if you want to -spot- something unknown, some of it has to be sticking out.Michael Prescotthttps://www.blogger.com/profile/04704966067758312492noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-145649986851420179.post-86478099214353161052021-11-23T23:57:41.520-05:002021-11-23T23:57:41.520-05:00This is exactly what I'm trying to figure out ...This is exactly what I'm trying to figure out but I honestly find most of the math in this post incomprehensible. I realize this is super old, but is it possible to explain the simplified version in an even more simple way?<br /><br />I'm not understanding why the 50' is involved, or why it's 6 miles + one mile. I've read this over so many times and I just can't figure it out.<br /><br />The examples don't seem to help cause the numbers are meaningless to me. Why is 50' the halfway point on the 200' cliff example? half point of what? to the tower? I feel really stupid but I'd love if there was a simple way for me to calculate this so I don't have to guess about it ever again.Anonymoushttps://www.blogger.com/profile/05518608994048136425noreply@blogger.com
