Alpha 12 Released

Dangerous Rays Alpha 12 is released !

This update is focused mainly on performance improvements. The core engine has been optimized a bit and now it can handle more objects by maintaining the same or even better framerate than Alpha 11 version. The structure generation (farms, forest houses, hunting points…) system has been remade from scratch and now you should have a must faster generation time. Along those changes a new “Cone Step Mapping” graphic feature has been added in the engine and it will be used in the next Alpha 13 version. This will give to building textures a great relief effect.
All building textures has been improved with details maps to make the texture sharper and less blurry.

Thanks to MxThe, in this version you will also find two new small houses and more than 15 new decorative objects.

Like always you will receive this update in your mail box very soon !

Thanks for your support and have a great time ! :)
