Looking to make your brights brighter and your shadows shadowier in Star Citizen? Then you’ll be in luck once alpha 3.20 goes live because CIG has confirmed that HDR support is in for the next build of the spaceships sandbox’s alpha.
The announcement doesn’t get too much simpler than that, but it also goes into a few details on just what HDR is, how to best take advantage of it, and a few other parameters that players can adjust if they’re not getting the viewing experience they want. In other words, it’s a simple addition all things considered.
On the subject of alpha 3.20, the studio has listed some of the items that will persist between 3.19 and 3.20 such as aUEC and ships bought with aUEC, reputation, and looted weapons and armor. Things that will not persist into the new build include consumables, rented ships, and in-progress refinery jobs, as well as salvaged ship components.
