2 major bugs : items use the old models with the new textures , so they look borked ; scrolling water texture is gone , replaced by a scrolling \"grid\" texture (but of the same color)

Very cool, congrats!

Minor question: Maybe I'm vain, but should I be able to see myself in the water reflection?

I don\'t think seeing an ugly , blurry ogro is worth the effort :>

I stand in awe of Gilt\'s Ruby of Midnight , a jewel of Cube mapping indeed... gritty and elegent , shiny and contrasted , just grand in its architecture. Not flawless though - I noticed some tiny gaps and octree holes.

Stakhanov : those errors you mentioned...I think you are the only one that sees these problems....maybe you installed over an old version? ;)

Sorry , he was right - I had overwritten the previous sauerbraten installation. I fixed the model problem by removing the old models folder - but I can't find the odd textures used in scrolling water. Besides that , the new water effects work perfectly.

Ideally you can, but because of the Fresnel effect, your reflection is very faint if you're looking at the water straight down. You can see yourself in places if you look carefully.

NOTE: if water performance is an issue, you can tone it down with "waterrefract 0". Also, you can turn down the detail of shaders in general by setting the "shaderdetail" variable to values less than 3 (the default).

Youīre not really supposed to have water touching bare sky. Itīs rather bad design on your behalf than a bug that would need to be fixed.

Please, please, please support some form of 3D import from other programs, e.g. through maya, max, direct x files, etc

You can use blender or ms3d to import almost any 3d file format and export to .md3 (or .md2 but itīs a bit painfull with blender).

When you are in water, look upwards and jump all the while moving forward, there's no splashing sound when you hit the water's surface after the jump.
