    Does anyone even use Unigine anymore? Seriously, the amount of games is ridiculously small according to wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unigine#Games

    Even for simulators the amount of quite small.

      Congratulations to the Unigine developers, production-ready Vulkan & DX12 support is a big milestone. Finally Unigine is into the modern era of Vulkan and DirectX 12 graphics APIs.
      It would have been better if they decided to keep the OpenGL renderer for a few releases, some overlap would've been nice.

        They have a different clientele. Hint: GIS, oil companies, etc. and they've been doing pretty good actually.

              Are they going to remove OpenGL? I know we are progressing but if that's mainly for design, OGL is going to remain here quite for while, I never understood also "death technologists" BTW, Vulkan 1.0 is out, "oh, it's end of OGL!", remove OGL everywhere while maybe it's old but one that's still fine and many people would like to depend on not having it disappear in an eye blink, it's just what I and maybe few others believe .

                    Crimea river no longer exists, the Russians blew up the dam that fed the canal.
