    Shadows (v1.4.8)


    Tyron

    Realistic Vintarians
    Version 1.4.8, a testing release, is now ready for download in the account manager.

    My whole family, including me, was yet again struck down, this time by a pretty bad stomach flu, so this release is way behind of where I wanted it to be. Nonetheless it should be worthwhile your time due to the addition of shadow mapping, if you have a beefier graphics card.

    Turning the shadow quality to very high might turn your machine into an egg cooker, but man, it's so worth it:
