the lightning and shadows definitely is. It probably only takes a second to notice how different underground exploration would change seeing how different the lightning conditions are using RTX

I'd be interested to hear what rig he's playing on, because he says he has to give up draw distance for ray tracing, and he is giving up a lot of draw distance...

Ever seen Boundless? A voxel MMORPG with way better textures and graphics, still blocks, and the lighting is fantastic, no RT at all, runs on not all that fast PC's as well....

Of course they can probably improve upon it with RT and am expecting they will in the near future but for now it is already doing things MC is only doing now with RT....

its pretty crazy... right coconuts?

NeoGamer232194d ago (Edited 194d ago )

I was thinking the same. Minecraft and its 8 bit graphics are not really considered "realistic"

mixelon194d ago

Nothing whatsoever about Minecraft’s graphics evokes 8 bit anything.

Neonridr194d ago

we are talking about lighting here. Not its art design.

rainslacker194d ago

The lighting is better. Realistic is a stretch.

mixelon194d ago

Realistic lighting in a boxy environment sounds interesting to me. Minecraft is so freaky in VR I can imagine this being ridiculously immersive.

rainslacker194d ago

The lighting is good. Gives it more character overall. I'm willing to concede the lighting is more realistic to the point it can be given the style of graphics, but realistic in terms of how I think of realism, not so much. It's not like Pixar, where it can show realism despite the art style, but nothing wrong with what they're doing.

Go watch the DF video they made. Realistic is exactly the way to describe everything that is being done with path tracing in this game, its crazy. They even managed to do a camera obscura

Bladesfist194d ago

It's path tracing with 8 light bounces, that is surely more realistic lighting than any other realtime game we have seen that fakes the effects that just happen naturally with this lighting simulation.

Are you being deliberately obtuse? The realistic part obviously refers to the way light behaves, not the game world.

Sucks that the Super Duper Graphics Pack ended up being vaporware. It would have breathed a lot of life into this game. Looking forward to Dungeons though.

CobraKai194d ago

Now if only someone can make the original Tomb Raider with ray tracing. I’m sure Tomb’s triangle boobs will also look insanely realistic

toyzombie194d ago

Damn... couldn't watch the whole video. Dudes voice got to me.

Blade92194d ago

Lol what are you even talking about

Lmfao it’s not just me then. It’s really irritating it’s as if he’s trying to make his voice sound deeper than it really is but it just grates on your ears and patience. He’s forcing that voice tone, and it’s just going to have him muted or turned off.

He should just speak naturally instead of trying to sound like a 50 year old throat cancer survivor who’s actually 14 and still going through puberty.

Have had shaders since 2014. Definitely makes the game better.
