Black Dragon is MY Viewer, i decide which feature i want to add and which to remove, i share this Viewer to show the world that user base size is not important, i do rate quality by effort, thought and love put into the project, not some rough estimated numbers. I consider feature requests only if i you can name proper valid reasons i can agree on. It is my (unpaid) time i'm putting into this project, i'm not here to cater to every Joe's desires.

Release 2.0.6

NOTE: The "FUCK U FULLBRIGHT" Feature needs revisiting of that SIM you´re on (or going to 2000m and coming back down) or relog

gdjasgagdag fasjgperfmöe ... fuahgfo *enables translator*

I hopy dopy you had a wonderfull christmas , cuz i DIDNT , i got like super duper sick , not just sick in my brain as usual , also physically sick...anyway

I planned a beta release but i made a full release out of it because it would have been counted as one anyway so here we go.

Yea uhm... Login has been fixed , menu has been removed , voice toggle added and all that stuff... you know... more important is that theres this... feature ... which allows you to disable Fullbrights... WOOOOOOW WAIT , Fullbrights? Yes you can disable them but it will need you to relog OR revisit the SIM or Place you are at (sorry for that but havnt found an effective way to do it yet)

Ever seen a fullbrightless world? no? here it is!

this is probably the best of all , you can do stuff like night and add some cool projected lights without those stupid fullbrights shining like "HEY IM HERE RUINING YOUR GODDAMN PICTURE"

Can you imagine that stuff can look good without fullbright? no? k , look at this

Oh and i forgot about that pesky bug faking motion blurrrrrrryyyyy blur... here...

go to preferences , make sure you got everything up to Deferred enabled , now enable Screen Space Reflections and keep Shadows and Ambient Occlusion DISABLED! everything else doesnt matter , motion should now start appearing a few times , just like a super simple motion blur and the lower your FPS go the easier it becomes to see it

Tofus also updated his Screen Space Reflection code and optimized SSAO aswell as DoF a bit , DoF should be ALOT faster now even with maximum resolution and SSR... well...look at it now

new Minimap FTW

please see the changelog for more information on those other changes that arnt THAT important...
