In all seriousness (and on topic), I know I could have a PS4 Pro and also be happy with shadows. In hindsight I'm glad I didn't spend $350 to "fix" these shadows, because all the other bugs would remain, and every other game I play on PS4 Slim looks fine, including NMS. ED is the only game in my collection that looks bad on my Slim.PS. I am happy with the shadows on my PS4.
Just to remind you - I'm not bothered by 'soft' shadows. I don't expect the razor-sharp shadows of the Pro. It's the terrible flickering that I experience when in motion, which makes flybys of megaships, stations, planetary outposts, and other shadow-casting objects visually painful. It didn't used to be this way - look at my Twitter feed from this time last year and you'll see I was very happy with the original 2.3 release for PS4. These flickering, broken shadows came with a subsequent update, and as of 3.2 they have not been fixed.
If browsers still supported the HTML [blink] tag, I could really drive my point home in a most annoying way [haha]
That's my 3.2 update. I'll come back and revive this thread when 3.3 drops. Maybe with the new lighting system I'll be able to finally say, "The shadows have been fixed!"
