Tech 5 is a next-generation engine from id Software. Used on their most recent title 'Rage' it has also been announced that it will be the technology behind the upcoming 'Doom 4'.

Upon announcing id Tech 5 one of the first features presented to the public was the inclusion of Virtual Texturing supporting textures with resolutions up to 128,000 x 128,000. This technique allows the engine to automatically stream textures into memory as needed, meaning that the developer need not concern themselves with memory restraints or texture limits. A stand-out feature of id Tech 5 to developers is it's resources for cross-platform development allowing both consoles and the PC audiences to take advantage of it.

Some other features of the id Tech 5 processing structure include:

  • Collision Detection
  • Animation Blend
  • Obstacle Avoidance
  • Transparency Processing
  • Cloth Simulation
  • Water Surface Simulation

Its a crying shame there are no mods for this, id tech 5 could quite possibly be the most advance engine to date. I would love to see what people could accomplish with the new degree of freedom with mega textures

I agree! I'm actually starting to learn the Rage Tool Kit now to see if I can come up with something.

Not sure if a banner image of Frostbite 2 is a bit off in the ID Tech 5 section :)

The Idtech5 engine should be named StaticEngine, because all, from shadows to objects is static and fixed with glue in the 3d world, its a big disappointment and a step back from the awesome IdTech4 and IdTech3, but i hope they get again the in the correct way on Doom 4, i just want like Doom 3 but better and more wide spaces but dark and scary, very scary !!! :D

You're just as dumb here as you are in doom3world.

Everything was static in Rage, yes. Idtech 5 is a tool. Nothing you build with it has to be exactly like Rage.

Just like Crysis 2 doesn't look as nice as crysis 1, but cryengine 3 ***** all over cryengine 2 in every conceivable way.
