Release Notes

This is a much more stable version. The physics are pretty much done; you power slide for a split second before jumping... interesting but not a desired effect :| I disabled interactive structures altogether; they're not gone forever, but not at least until I get another project where it needs to be.

In the main menu, you can now disable sectors from viewing. Also, there's a counter that tells you your current sector's vertex buffer size--in MB.

In the object editor, I added the Plane structure: a much better choice for grounds and such. Although the planes are a single face, they're loaded with just about as many vertices as there are in the cube structures. Rather than boosting performance, I decided to offer a better choice to mix with the baked lighting. More vertices means cleaner shadows. So you don't lose sight of them, I turned culling off. A hamper on performance, but not so bad now that you can turn individual sectors off.

I also want to note that the pipeline is back in. It has to stay if I want to accommodate importing through the content pipeline.

Overall, things are looking very good. Enjoy!
