I got sidetracked experimenting with textures and its working well, the only problem is semi-transparent solids, it casts the same shadows as opaque objects, any fixes for this?
Do you like the poster by the way? I've decided at the moment to use English as the Basic language for Human-Combine Communications, but posters and such will also have Russian translations.
Overall, its looking exciting so far
To anybody with experience, I wasn't going to ask yet but if anybody has enough modelling experience to model some static meshes such as train carriages.
