Hello, I'm curious if x4 plans on having support for HDR10 color ranges? I realize this game has been in the works for a while and HDR may not have been a likely concern during the initial planning since consumer monitors were not really pushing it yet. The consumer space is really starting to take off in that regard now with "gaming" monitors starting to use it and the high refresh 4k variants about to hit the market. The next gen of GPUs are slated to market for it with nvidias new gpus having gsync-hdr and high end monitors using it.

If not, do you believe this may be something which has the potential to be added later in an expansion once all the launch gremlins have been dealt with?

Space and space lasers and space bullets and space missiles and space things could definately be something to benefit from HDR. Obviously core gameplay is most important but it would be nice to see if the resources are ever there.

As a side note I am really disappointed with myself. I should have made a post on April 1st thanking you guys for the alpha invite and asking why my download link was not working. Twisted Evil

HDR is probably not something X4 will have at launch.
The game is being rendered in LDR (as far as i know, i dont have the complete understanding of that though).
Switching to a HDR range that late will probably not be an option.

A completely LDR pipeline? As in, no tone mapping whatsoever? (bow)

As for HDR - here's a nice read:
https://ventspace.wordpress.com/2017/10/20/games-look-bad-part-1-hdr-and-tone-mapping/

Makes you wonder if the "improvement" from HDR sets in games comes primarily from the better tone mapping done by the TV/monitor/whatever.

...guess I'm going a bit too off-topic Smile
