Great vid, thanks for posting. But does anyone know if dynamic shadowing can be disabled? While it's all very nice,  I'm sure it will come at a price regarding frames. If anyone isn't getting the kind of performance they expect, I would imagine not having dynamic shadowing would improve frames substantially. Maybe I'm wrong and due to the new coding and the way P3Dv2 had been developed it may in fact make no difference, but I'd be surprised if that was the case.

That does look impressive. Any word on the performance hit from ground scenery shadows? I always ticked that off without hesitation in FSX and earlier due to the dramatic reduction in frames it caused. Do clouds cast shadows?

As I've understood it, shadow features are higly customable, both in terms of what cast shadows and the quality/accuracy of the shadow itself. But, we're in Beta4 and things might still change before RTM.

JV from Orbx said they are thinking about removing the shadows that are burned into their airport sceneries because the new shadows are great and hardly cost fps… (it will be an option to use those textures or not btw). I did read other reports though. Anyway, I also read there are a lot of options for the shadows: it's not just on or off.

That was great!  

 

ORBX have burnt shadows on their terrain textures in regions like NZ and EU.  Hope this can be removed too.
