Re: Simulate sun position and lights/shadows
Even if I would prefer people use the solution proposed in the version 3.x, the advanced rendering still works with Sweet Home 3D as far as I know. The unwanted behavior that happened with Sweet Home 3D 3.0 was fixed in the version 3.1.

To answer noxx question about his "save and shutdown pc after rendering" button, I'm not sure I have a way to turn off a computer by program, but I understand autosaving in a default file could be nice. The problem with autosaving is that it obliges the developer to manage a list of autosaved files that should be deleted if not used. But how long should be the delay before considering an image is obsolete? Where these images should be stored?... An apparently simple question might in fact bring many questions sometimes.
