SilverLining 5 SDK released
Sundog Software has released a new version of its SilverLining software development kit (SDK), the company announced on 11 August.
SilverLining 5 includes new representations of storm clouds, allowing simulation developers to create more immersive flight training scenarios for dangerous weather conditions.
SilverLining 5 also delivers improved performance in stormy conditions, due to several new optimisations in how clouds are rendered. The SDK includes a new library of hand-modelled cumulonimbus thunderheads and towering cumulus clouds that deliver a convincing visual simulation of bad weather from any altitude.
Frank Kane, founder of Sundog Software, said: ‘Simulating the sky and weather brings a challenging set of requirements for developers of virtual training environments. We allow our customers to convincingly simulate any weather, at any time, at any place, while making integration of our software as simple as possible and its overhead as low as possible.’
SilverLining is compatible with round-Earth simulation systems and includes sample integration code for popular frameworks such as OpenSceneGraph.
