See the release page for a new update. Light intensity tuning, better "-help" for qrad3, and a couple bug fixes.

"smooth" (phong shading) and "extra' test map examples below. smooth takes an angle threshold parameter. 'smooth 46' will smooth inside angles up to 46 degrees and outside angles 134 degrees and up (180-46 = 134). 'smooth 0' is no smoothing. Interesting angle range is roughly 25 to 65 degrees.

Code: Select all

07-15-2020 release:
Adjustable sample nudge value. This is the fractional distance from face center when extra samples are used (-extra). Higher values are generally smoother. Lower values can sometimes reduce light leakage at small brushes. Default is 0.25, range is 0.0 to 1.0.

Add line number to brush notifications, useful for Trenchbroom's "Select by Line Number" command.

Rebrand tool names so it's easier to compare output with other tools that use the default names.

'Beta' release. Please report issues on github.
