We measure and quantify properties of galactic outflows and diffuse gas at z >= 1 in cosmological hydrodynamical simulations. Our novel subresolution model, Multi-Phase Particle Integrator (MUPPI), implements supernova feedback using fully local gas properties, where the wind velocity and mass loading are not given as input. We find the following trends at z = 2 by analysing central galaxies having a stellar mass higher than 10(9) M-circle dot. The outflow velocity and mass outflow rate ((M) over dot(out)) exhibit positive correlations with galaxy mass and with the star formation rate (SFR). However, most of the relations present a large scatter. The outflow mass loading factor (eta) is between 0.2 and 10. The comparison effective model generates a constant outflow velocity, and a negative correlation of eta with halo mass. The number fraction of galaxies where outflow is detected decreases at lower redshifts, but remains more than 80 per cent over z = 1-5. The outflow velocity correlation with SFR becomes flatter at z = 1, and eta displays a negative correlation with halo mass in massive galaxies. Our study demonstrates that both the MUPPI and effective models produce significant outflows at similar to 1/10 of the virial radius; at the same time shows that the properties of outflows generated can be different from the input speed and mass loading in the effective model. Our MUPPI model, using local properties of gas in the subresolution recipe, is able to develop galactic outflows whose properties correlate with global galaxy properties, and consistent with observations.
