    I actually struggled to find posts of yours to upvoat in retaliation. PoC is right, Sin sucked so hard it is where the 90's gravitationally ended.

    Couldn’t they have kept that code in and just added a toggle or something?

    a simple bool would be enough to toggle shadow modes.

    Preface: I'm not defending where DNF landed.

    Answer: No.

    Now if you had said "Well why didn't their lighting guys support TWO paths to lighting and therefore manually light every single scene twice" then it might have approached some semblance of understanding the problem, though you'll be hard pressed to find any project that considers supporting two lighting paths on the spectrum of sanity. The only place your suggestions have ever had any life are in some kinda interesting "super slow system options" where there is literally zero expectation of acceptable visuals purely to get polys on screen at a functional framerate on below min spec machines.

    I read this thread to remind myself I have no idea what's going on anymore.

    Except for Faangbook... 401ks being affected have a way of breaking through all social barriers.

    I really like working with Unity in my personal projects, but Unity's profit is not driven by optimized hardcore games and this will always reflect in the on screen results when the majority of folks are of middling skill level. Unity is an ad driven corporation.

    Even highly skilled devs have to work hard to get comparable visual results at even remotely similar performance metrics relative to other engines available off the shelf or via direct business agreements. Unity is an advertisement business first... this isn't actually a bad thing... I think it's VERY good path for them to dominate (which they do) and look forward to their continued effort to maintain that market lead while offering ever better and better tech to work with.
