This update contains some experimental changes to dynamic shadows and chunk rendering. Do let me know if something broke or got worse.

  • Feature: Chests, Vessels and Buckets can be rotated in 22.5 degree intervalls

Distant chunk are now drawn using the low detail version. Increases RAM usage by a lot currently. Blocktypes can now define a lod1Shape shape file. You can set the lod range using .clientconfig lodbias [0..1] default is 0.3)
