SE has partially implemented SLI supports. It works, but sometimes falling back to non-SLI mode. Unfortunately, one on my GPUs are broken, so I can't finish SLI support until I repair it.
Also, this thread is going offtopic.

Do you plan on having full SLI support in 0.9.9.0?

Source of the post No, emission maps does not affect lighting of the neighbouring terrain. This requires changing the rendering pipeline to deferred rendering.
Although emission maps of some ship will affect on the neighbouring ship, it it using PBR. Just because the first ship will appear in the environment map of the second one. 

I badly explained myself, what I wanted to ask was: if the emissions map affect the lighting of the ship itself... your answer makes me think that it is so.

It is already implemented.

No. Not many game engines supports self-reflections on models and similar things.

Sounds like an opportunity to be FIRST!

There's probably a reason why few engines support such things. Anyway, there are much higher priorities for SE development.

I don't know much about GPU programming these days, but it sounds extremely costly for a very minor enhancement.  Perhaps there exist some cheap tricks to mimic such self-reflections, but what can be done now in real-time with regular graphics cards is pretty close to what people did with proper raytracing 25 years ago, which is almost unbelievable.

Raytracing 25 years ago was not real time. Even now real raytracing (not a "cheat" one) is not real time on most PC hardware.
Many modern game engines introduces screen space reflections - a cheap and cheat way to imitate raytracing of the reflected rays. But this have obvious limitations - if the reflected ray goes outside the screen edge or behind some object, nothing can be rendered there. Pretty much like how black hole shader in old SE worked (and in 0.98 at "low" settings).

I know, I'm just saying that if we had shown people 25 years ago what modern engines can do now, they might have believed that raytracing was involved, since it looks so amazing.

ADDED: But actually, I do wonder if game engines of the future will actually switch to raytracing.

Wow,sounds a bit complex, for me a little bit.
I'm always ready to see news,regardless what is it.

This is so totally awesome!!
But man, at least why not had a prior release with VR support before working on further development? We are so hungry just for the VR experience of space, didn't need or expect so many improvements all at once. By this pace I think we won't get any update before Christmas, but thank you anyway. I think you should be paid for your work, that's simple ethics. Cheers.

This is why I pay so many attention to the Overview project (and I also have a contract oblications). Constellations are another side work, with ESO for planetarium version (it is another market for SE). All this side work delaying release, but it must be done.

Are you now working on the new nebula models and add them to procedural nebulas?

Woah! Nice! :D

Beautful work!

Fixed a dark spot bug in the atmosphere in center of a day hemisphere of a planet

Wait what? I honestly thought it had been fixed already, lol. I couldn't see any opacity spots at all in 0.980 :O
