Let's really discuss next x-plane

Recommended Posts

Considering the price of ray tacing cards, and we have seeing the specs of some pc's trying to run vulcan, doing ray tracing, unless it has a disable function, may loose laminar some customers, better lighting be far better option.

  Not really, if you choose carefully what to do with it and how much. ps5 uses what @mSparks posted or something similar yet uses ray tracing for indirect lights even with out ray tracing specific hardware.

not GI. closest thing xplane has is the bugged ssao.

xplane lighting hasn't been touched since practical realtime gi algorithms became available.

Got it thanks.

As a side note, how come i saw jcomn's post before yours (wasn't there for sure lol)?

Im a bad boy. Mods like to proof read my posts in case I accidentally on purpose use the dark side to make peoples heads explode.

Its genuinely safer for everyone that way. They have a thread about it pinned in the 2020 forum.

Wish Austin could read it.

He'd most likely shrug as visuals is not his department - it's Ben's and Sidney's.
