Accelerating graphics and much more.
Metal provides near-direct access to the graphics processing unit (GPU), enabling you to maximize the graphics and compute potential of your apps on iOS, macOS, and tvOS. Building on an approachable, low-overhead architecture with precompiled GPU shaders, fine-grained resource control, and multithreading support, Metal further evolves support for GPU-driven command creation, simplifies working with the array of Metal-capable GPUs, and lets you tap into Pro power of Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR.
GPU-driven Compute Encoding
Moving beyond just rendering passes, Metal in iOS 13 and tvOS 13 empowers the GPU to construct its own compute commands with Indirect Compute Encoding. Now complete scenes using advanced culling and tessellation techniques can be built and scheduled with little or no CPU interaction.
Free: the 3D file repository is entirely free. Free/paid: the STL file marketplace offers a mix of free and paid 3D designs. Paid: the 3D models marketplace is an online store where users must pay to download a 3D file. We classify the sites to download STL files in three categories. Almost all latest releases in one place, each album is available for download in a good quality. The soldier can only use one weapon at a time. Metal soldier classic demonstrate the legend game 'Contra' - Rambo shooting from 1990s. All the graphic is kept with original 8 bit design. Soldier will hit the boss after shoot down enemies. Control buttons is so simple and it 100% like real life joystick.
Improved Raytracing Acceleration
Metal Performance Shaders (MPS) speed raytracing operations even more by moving the bounded volume hierarchy construction to the GPU. MPS also provide new, optimized de-noising filters in an essential collection of highly-optimized compute and graphics shaders.
Metal for Pro Apps
Professional content-creation apps can take advantage of outstanding enhancements in Metal on macOS Catalina. Metal Peer Groups make it easy to rapidly share data between multiple GPUs in Mac Pro without transferring through main memory. And enhancements to CAMetalLayer give you access to the High Dynamic Range capabilities of Pro Display XDR.
Simpler GPU Families
Developing with Metal is even easier with the dramatically simplified GPU Families. Three well-considered groupings allow you to easily target functionality that's common across all Metal-enabled GPUs, access unique capabilities of Apple-designed GPUs, and better harness supported third-party GPUs on macOS.
Metal Memory Debugger
The Metal Memory Debugger gives fine-grained insight into how much memory Metal objects and rendering resources consume at runtime. It also analyzes how your resources are configured and suggests improvements, so you can deeply optimize your game or app to take full advantage of Metal.
Metal-enabled iOS Simulator
The Simulator now uses Metal to speed up the development of iOS apps that either use Metal directly or rely on Metal-based system frameworks. This is perfect for smoothly transitioning from OpenGL ES to Metal.

The fun doesn't stop there, though: keep on doing what you're doing and you just might make it all the way to the top to become a company boss and build the largest trucking company around!

18 Wheels of Steel: Pedal to the Metal Review
- Review by Mick
Second Life Free Download
The 18 Wheels of Steel (18 WOS) series provides the most realistic truck driving experience imaginable. In this installment of the series, Pedal to the Medal, the game gets even better with the addition of more business elements. You get to live the American dream as you work your way from employee clear up to the company boss. All this while still delivering cargo up and down North America.
Starting a game is very simple. At first you only have the choice of being an employee, but after you have unlocked the other options you can start at any level. Once unlocked, the levels to choose from are Employee, Owner Operator, and Company Boss. In the Employee mode everything is picked for you, the routes and loads. Once you save up $100,000 you can purchase your own truck and begin the Owner Operator mode. This mode allows you to pick which loads you want to take as well as managing your own enterprise. You will need to do things like upgrade your truck and hire new drivers. When you have progressed far enough in the Owner Operator mode you will be able to move up to the Company Boss mode. In this mode you no longer drive trucks, you just take care of all the business matters.
The controls in this game are very simple and anyone can learn them. While there is no tutorial, every time that player interaction is required there is a box that pops up telling you the appropriate command. There are also many other controls that are unnecessary to gameplay, but can add to the realism like turn signals and windshield wipers. All the controls can be found in the options menu. The controls are virtually identical to previous versions of 18 WOS.
Ah, the Life of a Trucker
Most of the game will be spent on the road delivering goods. That being the case, the well done graphics add a bit of realism to the game. Every detail is carefully crafted down to working dials in the dash of the truck. The highways are all correctly named and placed and even have street signs that can help point you in the right direction if you get lost. If your computer can handle it turning the graphics to the highest setting is a must. The level of detail achieved in this game is amazing.
Hope You Enjoy Driving
If you have played other 18 WOS games or are interested in playing this one you should be prepared to invest lots of time. While at first your runs are fairly short, only requiring 10 to 15 minutes, the most profitable hauls later in the game can require a much more significant amount of time. Luckily in this version of the game you can save mid haul and come back to it later right where you left off. Also this game removed the challenge of backing in the trailers. You only need to stop on the designated icon and release the trailer.
Conclusion - Best Trucking Sim Yet
With the new expanded business features 18 WOS: Pedal to the Metal expands on the classic game and keeps all the elements that made it a great game to start with. You can work your way up from workin' for “the man” to being “the man”. This game is simple to learn and can be played by virtually anyone. This is definitely one of the best in the series.
