Orbx is working hard to update their products to P3D V4, they’ve got 100s of airports to update. Today, previews of LOWI Innsbruck have been released!
The previews released today show off the new dynamic lighting inside P3D V4, the daytime shots show off the scenery with sliders maxed out!
In a post to the forums, Orbx developer, Jarrad Marshall wrote: “Whilst work on the new ObjectFlow module is going on at a frantic pace behind the scenes, I thought I might put up a few screenshots of the new dynamic lighting being introduced at Innsbruck Airport. This will be one of the very first ORBX airports to include this new feature in P3Dv4, and will be rolled out as soon as all our airports are released for v4 (ie, once Objectflow is ready).
A considerable amount of effort has been spent testing this new lighting, and the result is a balance between performance and detail, with the airport relying on a combination of both dynamic (for aprons and primary areas) and traditional rendered (secondary areas) lighting. For those of you who would prefer, the dynamic lighting can also be entirely disabled via the LOWI control panel; the disabled option will show lighting exactly the same as in P3Dv3.
Lastly, I’ve also added a couple of daytime shots from v4 with all sliders maxed. This is solely to show the excellent new autogen rendering distances – a huge step up from previous versions of the sim. You will notice that generic trees and buildings now render almost the entire distance to the horizon, something that makes a big difference from an immersion perspective.
Anyway, enjoy the shots. As always, no release dates will be given, but it is worth noting that I’ve been holding back on these previews until I was confident that some more news on the Objectflow update wasn’t too far away ”
