What is KappaPT?

Some of you may already know the Kappa Shader of mine, this is a very similar pack but instead of relying on the vanilla lightmap it is using worldspace path-tracing to fully replace the lightmap. It delivers accurate blocklight emission, skylight occlusion as well as global illumination through that. Of course this does come at the cost of increased code complexity and reduced performance as well as being much more time consuming and challenging to work on. Thus I have decided to turn this into a separated pack, which is available through patreon for said reasons
KappaPT is available for Tier 3 Patrons (10€), with less frequently updated but in turn more stable versions being available for Tier 2 (5€). If you can't or won't pay, the normal Kappa Shader should provide more than reasonably good results for you, especially with its SSPT emission which has brought it a big step closer to the results of path-traced shaderpacks when it comes to the prominent colored lighting and global illumination.

KappaPT P15a and NostalgiaVX P7c

I’ve made a bunch of smaller changes to KappaPT and NostalgiaVX again, and as I said its mostly just minor things that improve the overall quality of life and fix some issues.

Development Update – June 2022

It’s time to go through some new stuff again and as usual there are some especially interesting things, most notably further progress on Kappa Shader v5.0 as well as an improved auto-exposure solution.

KappaPT P15

Raytraced refraction are now finally a thing as promised, which means KappaPT’s intended main features are now more or less covered

Development Update – May 2022

It’s once again time for another update blog, and as always there’s some pretty interesting stuff, especially for those of you who want to get the best visuals to performance ratio.

Development Update – April 2022

There have been some interesting updates again in the past month and even a new project that finally made its way out into the open. So stay tuned for a rather expansive overview this time, as well as some insight into future plans.

Development Update – March 2022

It’s time to go through some new updates again, although there aren’t quite as many this time as I’ve been a bit more occupied with other things lately.

KappaPT P13c and NostalgiaVX P6

Since it feels a bit unreasonable to make posts for every small hotfix update I’ll just do bundled update posts like this from now on, which contain a bit more information at once.
