FlyTampa Playing With PBR in Prepar3D V4.4

Developers seem to be pretty excited by the prospect of PBR now within the development tools of Prepar3D. Various aircraft developers have told the community they are working on updates (although it will take a little longer than hoped) and FSDreamteam recently shared their Chicago O’Hare using the new technology.

Popular scenery developer FlyTampa joined in on the action today by sharing their current research and development efforts in testing the new effects. The clip is to simply demonstrate how the new tools can change the look and feel of the texturing from a developer point of view. The video shows how the sun can reflect accurate light reflection from puddles and ground, and then how the moonlight can also change the colouring of the textures too.

We’re confident as developers sink their efforts into learning about the new SDK for Prepar3D V4.4, we’ll see a good up-take of work being made to enhance scenery going forward.
