Introduction of the option

Update 1.104.0 released on October 4, 2012 added the support for dynamic shadows to the game:

Thanks to this feature, various objects on maps (buildings, fences, trees, tanks, etc.) can now cast shadows. Even the turret of a tank drops a shadow on the hull.

Dynamic shadows can be enabled only with hardware acceleration on Windows, MacOS and Linux.

Enabling the option

Depending on the performance of your PC you can enable and disable this function in Settings. Don't forget to switch on hardware acceleration.
