    X-Plane Next Generation Technology Preview

    X-Plane from Laminar Research is of course in a constant state of development and the team is often working on new technology to incorporate into the sim. They've just released a new technology preview video demonstrating a new photometric lighting model.

    "Here's a window into the next generation of X-Plane technology. Our team has been working to replace the existing lighting in X-Plane 11 with an entirely new, photometric lighting model. We will have more details and previews available soon!"

      They also need a better matching system to the degree of lighting, that being that sunset is not always at 7:15 PM anywhere in the world. Location and time of year also plays a huge factor in realistic simulation.
