The skybox really destroys the whole outdoor epicness of your mapping. Would be nice if you could do some coding on implenting a 1024x1024 skybox. For that you could have a look on the source cod of trinity renderers. greetings, crowbar

We are looking into potentially updating the skyboxes.

Wow.. as always extremely impressive!

How did you get the masked barbed wire texture to cast a shadow like that?!!

Thanks!
It's a mixture of Spirit's ability to make {solid textures cast shadows and Vluzacn's magnificent compile tools.

That's some amazing mapping and beautiful lighting. I can't wait for the complete release, meanwhile the college homework will keep busy until then :P

Like everyone says: Those shadows are fantastic. Do you think you could post your settings for rad?

Most certainly, it's just -bounce 3 and -extra using Vluzacn's outrageously good compile tools. The real key is the double-res textures (scaled to .50) which doubles the resolution of the lightmap.

Those shadows are out of their time. 1998 should not be able to do this.
