Update 0.26: new shadows

This is mostly a technical update, no gameplay changes. The major feature is new shadows.

I did some cache-related optimizations for the water/lava simulation, so let me know if it helped or not if the game was slow for you before.

Note that you can support me on Patreon now, which have some behind-the-scenes and work-in-progress posts for supporters. And my thanks to those who already did, it helps a lot!

Change log:

  • New shadows.
  • New anti-aliasing method (TAA).
  • Tree foliage now uses a much less detailed model in the distance, for performance.
  • Tried to improve water simulation performance on some CPUs.
  • Added rim lighting and adjusted land textures.
  • Disabled stylistic post-processing effect by default, you can toggle it with F5.
  • Various rendering optimizations.
  • Sound volume instead of master volume in settings.

“Even if Arcane Worlds only ever copied Magic Carpet, that would be enough for some people to be excited about it... but it already looks like there’s more to it than that.”
