As of version 4.35, the Triton Ocean SDK now links against NVidia’s CUDA Toolkit 11.0 for x64 targets in Visual Studio 2012 and newer. This means that if you are building Triton from source, you’ll first need to install NVidia’s...

A quick heads-up: in SilverLining version 5.072, we have refactored our OpenGL code such that the same GLSL shaders are shared between our OPENGL and OPENGL32CORE renderers. This made it easier for us to implement uniform buffer object (UBO) support...

Our latest release of the SilverLining Sky, 3D Cloud, and Weather SDK includes richer lighting effects on our simulated 3D cumulus and stratocumulus clouds. These improvements give the clouds a better sense of depth, with more pronounced highlights from the...

Many customers are really pushing SilverLining to its limits, with dense cloud layers extending far to the horizon. Maintaining high framerates in these simulated conditions requires making smart choices in how you configure your cloud layers. Previously, we’ve posted performance...

The work of Bransilav Milic has graced our site before; he’s remained at work creating cinematic-quality videos of flight using the X-Plane 11 flight simulator, and our 3D cloud add-on for it called SkyMaxx Pro. SkyMaxx Pro is built using...
