Flat packing rules! I just understod this morning how big effect (good one!) it will have on the scene I'm constucting now... really a life (lightmap) saver!

Rendering speed up? Are you sure that you did not forget to enable shadow caster from some methods like earlier... ;P

No, it's all done pre-rendering where it builds a scene-graph/bsp-tree/octree (actually it's neither of those, but it's similar) thingie which speeds up the rendering :)

Neat, especially the Modulate2X support :)

Wow, another great update :)

There were a few buggers with the changes to the viewport system. They are sorted now, so you can download v1.20a from the website.

Have a nice weekend :)

What's flatpacking by the way?

fredborg(Posted 2004) [#12]
It is similar to planar uv-mapping... It doesn't split the models like the complex packing, but rather projects the lightmap. It's the thing to use if you want to lightmap a terrain or another flat-ish model.

Ah, I understand ...

I've just downloaded it, and I've almost got a cool scenery model done, so I'll give 1.20 a spin later. Cheers :)
