Re: Bump mapping for ricochet.

This would be pretty easy. Bump maps are basically vector normals spread across a 2D face to give it a 3D appearance of shading and such.

_cullDist not taking effect - 2.0.10

I'm working on a map object that is scenery outside the bounds of play. However it's being clipped by the far plane. If I increase the worldsize then the far plane is increased with it and the object shows up just fine. _cullDist is set to "fog", however fog is set to worldsize. Maybe I'm setting it...

How do I pre-order a hoodie? cause I need a hoodie but my parents didn't want me spending $80 on one (and bzflag is the only thing as cool as an $80 hoodie...)


*edit*
I probably don't need a hoodie now that's it getting into the 100f temperature. I still want one though!
