Hey! Project Metal’s goal is to update the core codebase of Infinite Flight to better support features that highly tax the performance of mobile devices.

Some of the features that Infinite Flight would like to implement through Project Metal:

  • Dynamic lighting: the ability to have aircraft lights (airport lights, and more) illuminate the environment dynamically
  • Improved aircraft shading that takes into account light coming from the environment around it
  • Realtime shadows
  • Volumetric effects like dense 3D clouds and better fog
  • Texture streaming improvements to allow more visible aircraft in multiplayer

You can find all Project Metal information here:
