With the recently rainy weather and the somewhat more relaxed RL job situation, progress has been made. I've added "-destroyed" versions of the containers to LOD1 and made them separate subobjects also for LOD2. So I need to re-convert it once again and then finish the normal map, but one final big push should be enough.
But today Starcraft2 arrived via mail.... so I make no release date promises
(though it should happen within the next few weeks, and not months)
