I tried really hard looking for reasons in order to NOT name this the most significant and amazing release for quite a while. Didn't find any.
I thought adding beams and those particle effects would be great enough already, but these animated textures and mirror effects just blew me away. The game looks even more alive with these! IMHO, this is must-have stuff!
Thanks a ton for the great work, webangel! We owe you!
Just to make sure, did you use the modified HIP2M2 and HIP2M4 ent files splitterface updated at the beginning of November? They contain a few fixes, I hope you didn't miss them. (It seems HIP2M4 is up-to-date, but HIP2M2 isn't - you may have downloaded splitterface's wrong first reupload. I have fixed it for you - your light beam mods with splitterface's corrected values in the entrance area. Replace your hip2m2.ent with the one from my attachment, that should be it.)
I see you included 12 shots for each cubemaps. According to DPWiki
, only 6 are needed. If this results in graphic distortions, maybe the ones not required should be removed.
