I'm out of the town, I can help you better next week. The version you need depends of the servers you are going to use (linux or windows, with or without GPU, etc.).

I’d like to have a go at the Luxcore Blender 2.8 beta, but I’ve got a few questions:
  1. Does Luxcore work with the latest 2.81 master builds?
  2. Luxcore uses OpenCL, and no NVIDIA libs such as CUDA or OptiX, or am I mistaking?
    Does OpenCL match the speed of the NVIDIA libraries when rendering with an NVIDIA GPU?
  3. Does Lux support vertex colors?
  4. Does Lux have blended box or tri-planar mapping?
  5. Can you layer multiple HDR environments using an Add shader, like in Cycles?
  6. Does Lux have Random Walk SSS?
Thanks.
