UE5 was announced today. Amazing stuff. Epic Games has provided evidence (Fortnite) that they are trying to make UE5 as backward compatible with UE4 as possible. We all know Train Sim World has been going through the motions with UE version 4.16. What better way to show off the game than to migrate to this liberating new engine that has so many features the developer team can learn to master. We wouldn't have so many complaints about sound and lighting and incredibly short render distances when Unreal has created a way to relieve stress about optimising and light mapping. For RTX users, light maps can be (apparently) completely discarded with the real-time dynamic RTGI system. And hopefully the game will still be functional when its migrated over... since Epic Games has announced that they're migrating Fortnite over. It's just a thought. But UE5 has gotten a lot of hype going in the Train Sim Community discord server. Clearly it's a turnover opportunity.
