I have a few cool announcements about CGE features this weekend 🙂 Let’s start with a summary of new things done lately:

  1. Fixed bold / non-bold display in CGE editor for Single properties. Bold in object inspector should always mean “different than default” intuitively.

  2. I have started implementation of the EnvironmentLight X3D node, to perform image-based lighting. This is a work-in-progress. The eventual goal is to add such light to CGE, and to X3D 4.1, and to make it consistent with glTF image-based lighting extension. See X3D 4 plans and initial EnvironmentLight tests.

  3. The run command of our build tool is now more useful on Windows. It shows the log, just like on all other platforms (desktop Unix, mobile…). So using castle-engine run on command-line is now very useful on Windows.

    Note that for most users, I would advise just using Run command in CGE editor. This also outputs log nicely.

  4. Additions and fixes to CastleTransform API:
