Are you kidding? They look amazing! o_O This is huge improvement upon previous state. You and Ket really did remarkable job here. I'm so can't wait to try DS 2.0. ;)

Thanks dude, took us quite some time of discussing and figuring how to get this effect into SoC. But we're quite satisfied with the result. You will have to have a little patience to try this, though...

Yeah i fully understand that such project is not one days job. Sorry, i didn't mean to rush you... ;) Also, hehe, i saw your "lightning shafts" before you removed that screen. :D Well, it look nice and strange in the same time. I can live with that if you decide to leave them, but now i'm wondering if moon also have shafts... I'm using a LOT of moon in my little personal mod and it would be too strange even for zone. :D Your shaders involving some external scripting so maybe you can turn off shafts after certain hour or something like that to prevent "moon shafts"? XD

Yeah, I removed that screen just for the sake of avoiding having it as the first image here (I would have to have uploaded it before the others).

And yeah, moon shafts come up as well. I personally like them, but I also already thought of making this "configurable" by script - what would also allow other adjustments such as emphasize or tone down, or disable the shafts depending on custom conditions such as level, weather, time, among other things. Not sure yet if and how I will incorporate such a script in DS 2.0, though

Actually, there is such things as moon shafts ;) on clear nights or even cloudy nights with breaks in the cloud when the moon is in front of the sun the suns light can reflect / refract off the moons surface and under the right conditions be seen as moon shafts, but people just call it moon light still. Google moon shafts and one or two images should come up if you want to see what I mean.

Some screens from the current development state of Dynamic Shaders 2.0. The sun shafts look quite nice now, even when shining through windows.
