    Today was the last bugfix day for a while! Consequently, the new version is ready! Thanks to all you guys for the great bug reports :)

    Matt should have the build uploaded on the download page soon-ish. (Hes afk right now)

    Today I spent 4 hours fixing ONE bug! The seams on the planet terrain were really bothering me, and after barking up the wrong tree for most of the morning I realized that it was an off by 2 error in the normal mapping calculation!

    There were still texture seams after that, so I switched to a triplanar texture mapping system. The pro to this texture mapping is that textures are seamless everywhere, the downside is that they now tile much more noticeably, and the water animation is much worse. Will have to solve that problem later.

    I also fixed various other bugs, and exposed a bit more planet info thanks to a suggestion from Thomas :)

    Well I am thinking that we could release a voxel build in 2-3 months. Take that projection with a grain of salt, so far I have been quite bad at guessing release dates. Perhaps I can redeem myself this time.

    Is this a real planet or an ingame one? Looks pretty!

    How large pyramids can we build ingame before gravity lets them collapse?
    1/1000 planet diameter? 1/100 ;)
