Not long after updating their flagship product, ENVTEX, developers TOGA Projects has released a small but meaningful update for their other program: ENVSHADE. The new update ensure that it is ready for Prepar3D V4.4 and also includes some neat new features.
As said on their Facebook page (and forum post), ENVSHADE now features the ability to have directional cumulus cloud lighting, all of which also adjusts depending on the time of day. Unlike other shader programs, ENVSHADE will receive light depending on the position to either the sun or the moon. And for those who are concerned, it does work with PBR enabled in Prepar3D V4.4.
To update, just head to the Envdir Help Page and follow the instructions. You could also just download the update from SimMarket. If you don’t own it, you can buy it for 5.60 euro.
- Directional cumulus clouds lighting added (for P3D v4.3 and higher)
- Cloud shadows reworked
- Cirrus clouds lighting readjusted depending on day-time
