We donโ€™t have any specifics to share just yet apart from what we discussed on the stream

For GSE for other players, this was a feature we wanted to include in 24.2 but delayed it to a future update as it needed some more work. That will come in the next round hopefully :)

Information compilation (from IF discord):

In the A380 preview stream Cam mentioned the new rendering engine, He once showed Dan the new graphic and Dan was like jaw-dropped.

From the information I gathered, the new graphic engine development is still in progress but itโ€™s nearly finished. The improved effect is already noticeable in dev builds. Current version is even compatible with the new graphic engine.

I hope we can see things coming together by the end of this year. Iโ€™m as excited as you are!

I see myself ๐Ÿ‘€

Thank you for your answers, they are nice to hear :)

So we will have better graphics?

Well, if you go up a few posts and see that Jason is describing the new graphics as โ€œINSANEโ€, Iโ€™d sayโ€ฆYes? ;)

Did they show that in A380 video ? If yes, can you share at what timestamp they were talking about. I cant find

It wasnโ€™t shown, as far as I can remember.
It must have been shown to Dan peer to peer.

So itโ€™s just a new graphic engine no new weather implement or lights?

It lays down a foundation, without which those fancy new things wonโ€™t be possible.
