VUE renderer in MS CE 10.16.01.56 - still pretty much useless...

I downloaded the latest MS CE16 and tried to render some of my projects. Unfortunately, VUE still produces very, very poor results. Here is a couple of screenshots:

Demo no.1 - a view was rendered with Maxwell renderer (I have a token for Maxwell renderer for CE16). Rendering was slower than with VUE but materials look good and RPC cells render fine, too.

Demo no. 2 - The same view was rendered with VUE & path renderer. All materials look strange and RPC cells are gone...

Demo no. 3 - the same view was rendered with VUE & ray tracing. The image looks just as bad as demo number 2

I am seriously worried because my Maxwell token will stop working after 31.12.2021. That means, there is less than two months left and VUE is still pretty much useless for production...
