On this latest teaser image I see 3D grass at the edge of the fairway there..

 

I’m curious if these are skyboxes as we have now or dynamic sky with great new realtime lighting?

Anyone have any knowledge or thoughts on that?

This sure would be exciting if we were waiting on release and viewing teaser images of a new version for normal PC users also..

I'd be willing to bet that there is no dynamic sky. It causes

more problems than it's worth from a design perspective.

Good call

And honestly skyboxes can be great.

It’d be cool to have a couple different time of day themes too.

Agreed.  Otherwise it's just hanging fruit out of our reach.

I do also think I still see some 3d grass there - a "bit" maybe??

 

Might just be the texture I suppose..

A bit low Rez on the graphic/in game there it would seem.  Maybe just image compression.

Hope the shadows are high quality..

Those two images posted today could almost pass as PG 1 graphics to my untrained eye... well, save for the face on view of the golfer that you won't see in game, superimposed on the screen.  Are these images coming from Facebook or Instagram perhaps?  I don't see anything about VG2 on the Trackman website.

That Pot Bunker deffo looks different to me...No flat base to start with and the contour of the top lip of the bunker follows the sand....That's all new to me

I see that now that you pointed it out... thanks!  I thought we'd see more evidence of Turf Effects 3D rough by now, but I honestly can't say I see it in these two images, but that could just be a product of the angles and camera heights.

I agree with you JC that I was expecting it to look a little bit more different than this.

These are from their Instagram.

Rob thanks for pointing out that detail about the bunkers.

Anything else you see that looks different or just that so far? (obviously a pretty limited view so far )

They aren't showcasing grass at the moment if it exists. Seems like they would surely do it. I'm guessing all their base hardware installs can handle it.

They've heavily planted the grass billboards... meh, but that's Unity. I'd love to know if the newer Unity has any soft shader options for the billboards.

The bunker does seems to be improved. Also, seems to have a few more tris around it, lending to softer slopes. But, this can be done in our current CF as well.

For what they're showing, it's better than what they were doing in PG1. But, they've always stuck with stock stuff anyway. Even in VG1. My favorite TM course that I've seen is Shelter Harbor. The textures seem right and the course is well planted but it's not much different than these images.

So, in summary, improved, yes. Something worth teasing, probably not unless they show a little more.

At this point, half the PC user base may be on a blue pill so they would have to know they need to show off more than a little leg. Maybe they're targeting the millennials but I'm certain they can't afford it.

Good summary DP..

The teasing is becoming a bit silly given the product and genre we are talking about.

 

The old adage "Poop or get off the Pot" is coming to mind.

And, they can't have many people that even know a second version of their software exists or is coming "soon". I would bet that page is getting very few views. Remove your clicks Buck and it probably has less than 50 views.

50?

Remove mine and it might have only 5

I only saw the top image on Trackman's Instagram page.  Am I somehow missing the second image on their homepage on Instagram?  The reason I'm asking is I just wanted to read the comments about the second image.  The four comments about the first image were simply not enough  ;)
