Are we going to get to use that AO white view? It looks awesome.

Great. It's a nice and very welcome enhancement to the visuals, but I'm a bit afraid ambient lit sides of objects will be even darker with AO. Ambient lighting in general seem to be too dark. Maybe  IBL and GI could help, I think.
Is your AO supressed by direct sun light? How's the performance cost?

AO is attenuating ambient light and reflections only and that is why it's invisible on direct sun light. The performance cost depends on your GPU the implementation is not final but I think I will be able hold it under 2.5ms on my NVIDIA 750 TI for high quality version in 1920x1080.

That's fantastic! i was wondering too if AO would show in direct sunlight. If it doesnt, then it's really realistic.

I noticed further, that grass is affected by AO. So is the terrain as well?
In the shots you posted, I might have seen it on terrain bumps.

Yes terrain is affected by AO too.

That's awsome. Is it noticeable on, let's say, distant rocks?

 ... the grass looks great this way. Is it a big FPS kill at the grass level ? ( would be it reasonable to have a possibility to get the grass excluded from it for performance reasons, whyle keeping it on terrain and objects ? )
