Young Ntr09 reported to us that the new Nvidia 295.73 drivers increased his shadows performance, so I gave it a burl last night, without much performance difference.
Then tonight I had more time, so was able to test the shadows performance more, and wow! I definitely notice an improved ability to run with medium shadows, possibly even high if I don’t want the silky 25-30 fps.
I filmed the above video much as I first experienced the flight – had a ‘pinch me’ moment, looking out and seeing my plane’s shadow follow me and even the gear retract on takeoff.
Go gettit if you are able!
