    I still dislike their models...those things are ugly. And not in a good way.

    Default No external links on phoronix?

    Interesting, will go and check it out... not for me ofcourse... just to help testing it

    p.s.
    @michael, could you add external links to your articles, this would be very helpful in most articles.

    The third pic's shadows look pretty bad. Was this called acne, or swimming or ?

    Could be a cheap way of bluring the shadow edges.

    It's four sample dithering - a fast method for blurring shadow edges, and something that is not noticeable in normal game play.

    Actually though, that pic was taken a bit ago, the edges have since been made softer and without the dithering lines.

    They are my personal artwork, and I am proud of them. It's ok if others don't like them, I'm not looking for anyone to replace the art - it's *my* artistic expressions That is the entire reason I created the game to begin with. I hope others understand my position.

    Hey!

    Don't let dumb comments get you down. Few people actually take the plunge to do the work you have done in AE.

    Keep up the good work as I know many of AE players appreciate it

    Kind Regards,
    Arno
