It is surprisingly huge, when you stand next to it. Unfortunately, the russians are not very good at tourism: There is no way go into it, or get any info about it at the place where it is located. I would have paid money for both. :) But it was just standing there, not even the shop below the shuttle has anything to do with that thing.

normal map support, and quickly integrated it into CopperCube, as test. irrEdit, the irrlicht editor CopperCube is based on never supported normal maps, although irrlicht did, a thing which always annoyed me.
I was thinking about what types of normal maps to support, and considered only to support Object Space Normal maps, because they are easy to implement on all the targets, are a bit faster to compute on slow devices, and even need less memory. Unfortunately, they are a pain in the ass to create, so I'm now going with tangent space normal maps.
There is a lot of work to be done before it is finally functional, but I'm happy that it sort of works already in the editor now. It's a step into the right direction.
I am baffled.
I try to answer support mail of my customers in the same way. Sometimes, this is not always possible, but usually, I answer within 24 hours. My company is small, and I have just a few customers. But that Microsoft is able to do this as well is really surprising. Great work. Especially when you look at companies like Google, who don't even seem to have support. The best you get is an automatic response by some python script, or similar.
(The date printed in the video isn't correct) My voice is a ~little~ bit pitched because I was horrified that I could run over this furry little thing. Thankfully everything went well :)
