Open Source Render Engine for iclone

Reposting from the forum at Peter's suggestion.

Wicked Engine is an open source real time ray tracing game engine that also allows using their code for the render engine only, to be used in other software
the github -

The more i look into this project the more I see it as a really good match for an alternate Iclone main render engine - it's actively being developed now, and it also seems to fall inline with how iclone already works. - it might be cool for the RL team jump in and add their 2 cents for a custom version for iclone!

it has an extensive list of features
