solvalou @ What do you think about the new features? (Spotlight, reviews, previews, interviews, ModTV, Modcast, etc.)

Moar reviews.

Theres a glut of games(mods/stand alones) on moddb. I know it wouldn't make sense to review an outdated/dead multiplayer game but theres a lot of single player ones out there. Even if its old, a singleplayer game can still be played years from the original release :D

You can use smoothing groups on the high poly, subdivision/chamfer edges is better though.

When you use smoothing groups on the low poly to generate your normal maps, it doesn't catch the info between the smoothing groups. Lets say you have a nice cube with rounded edges. Your low poly is a 6 poly cube that has different smoothing groups so it looks faceted. What happens is when you generate the normal map is that it wont catch the smooth rounded edge of the high poly because the normals of the low poly are only facing 90 degrees from each other. The smooth rounded edges are between those 90 degrees. If the low poly cube had a single smoothing group, the normals would be covering the entire area so it would catch all the details.

The smoothing on the low poly is usually just one group since it is the normal map that does the "smoothing".

If you generated a normal map from a mesh(low poly) with 1 smoothing group, then put smoothing groups afterwards on the mesh, then put in the normal map, you will get smoothing/normal map errors/seams.

Yeah I get the updates on the mods that I am watching but it doesn't "list which mods" I am watching. I even went to my profile page thinking it would be listed there but it isn't.

solvalou @ Decay

Thanks for the offer but I highly doubt we could use them since the game specs are quite different from last-gen specs.

Although the concept look quite bit "Marvel-ish" I assure you it looks quite bit different in final form. This is, Silent Hill after all ;)

Soon little children... soon... bwahahaha >:)

Nice upgrade on the engine. Hopefully you guys will make the player models normal mapped also. Keep it up.

ACTUALLY, the textures came from the texture pack. The Implight texture means "Impact light".
