Shade tables are used in 8 bit software rendering to precalculate shading effects like gouraud texture and translucency.
For example you can quickly look up a color from a table using col2 = table[shade][col].

If you're using hardware rendering only you don't have to make shade tables for your objects.

Even the terrain rendering?

reading the docs, it seems that you'd need to create one for the terrain...or am I wrong?
