Environmental Entity

An environmental entity is a simulated environment, which fully supports the dynamic elements of the natural geographic, atmospheric, and bathyspheric sub-environments that make up any realistic space.

If the simulation is a replica of a physical location, then it must try to replicate those sub-environments as accurately as possible to the actual observed conditions. If it is of a fantasised environment, then all three must be realistic to that environment.

Environmental entities are popular with military uses of VR, as they allow the synthetic environment to accurately recreate craters, smoke, building collapse, weather conditions, and sea state to inflict on the training troops. Enhanced realism of nature leads to a superior training environment.
