Simple question: will the flyable AC feature dynamic shadows in the cockpit? Both RoF and SoW show how nife this can look. I'd love for JT to be on the same visu level.

The simple answer is: yes smile

Below it's a WIP picture, it still has the outdated SHAR cockpit but should demonstrate well the dynamic shadows effect:



It's running in a programmer's test shell so it is not loading terrain and other features for quicker loading/testing/prototyping (it's a "JT lite" type of app focused in the effects being developed/tested).

(And I apologise for the complete lack of anti-alias in the picture above).

Very great!

My dream is to have three simulations, all from the major eras of air combat history (WW1, WW2, Jet Age) which look good to next other and with a comparable feature set. Otherwise I always find myself flying Sim A and wishing it had Feature B and looks like Sim C.

Seems JT will fit my collection very well. So that and SoW, and I'm set.
