today I was thinking about some stuff, and with the newer memory management code added shortly after the decal code was made I decided to make a fork of the work I had currently and merge in the new decal code to see how well it actualy worked, I was suprized by how well it actualy did, and I spotted and fixed the big memory leak bug rather quickly. haveing spent fifteen minutes going over old code I thought for a moment about my experements with something a few months back and decided to reintegrate it into the fork I had, in the proces I saw what I had been doing wrong all those months ago and it finaly worked, another hour of work and I had it running nearly flawlessly.
now before some individuals start reminding me about the freize, 99% of this was something I did months ago (well the new decal code was a few weeks, it's in there as well), and I have fixed a lot of bugs over the last few weeks, so this isn't deriliction of duty.
now that said try out this build and see if you can tell what I did (note; don't go to the tech room as you need to be in mission once before it will work properly)
first person to guess corectly wins.. being the first to see it.
look carefully, it is a somewhat subtle effect.

I really should be studying for my midterms right now XD


Anyways...

WAY COOL, ENVIRONMENTAL MAPPING  *cheers*



And there seems to be a lot more debris (transparent too).  It's a little distracting having that much stuff flying into my face with full afterburners.



Framerates still good.  A steady 85 as usual for the first mission.

env map is kinda hard to show in a screenie. i used my skybox and it was just plain sweet. i take it that it uses the shine map in the rendering code. id never thought id see that in freespace.

You need to see it live. The shininess is awesome, Bob... but you gave it away in the exe title. :D

Yeah, screenshots don't do it justice:

uhm, bob?

when you go to external vview, move around a bit, and then go back in, the back end of the fighter stays visible in the lower part of the HUD.

when pulling up, it disappears, but when moving down, the back end moves up.
when warping out, you see the rear end disspear through the node, but you continue straight on, and then you see the debrief.
