Its handling of lighting especially under diverse weather conditions and daylight is incredible. Looking back, it’s interesting to see how Kojima discusses the engine in 2011 and the preview of the Fox Engine at GDC 2013.

Wacom Tablets and Windows 10 - Go ahead and upgrade

Wacom users found Windows 7 frustrating and Windows 8 even more frustrating due to numerous pen experience “enhancements” that interfered with their typical usage of the pen in creative applications.
