Live for Speed, Graphics Progress Report: Rockingham

Hello Racers,

In the August progress report we talked about the new shadows and lighting system and showed pictures of the updates on the Blackwood track. This month we have some screenshots of the Rockingham track and shadows working with moving objects and the layout editor.

As one of our more recently updated tracks, Rockingham received a relatively minor update. Many of the kerbs now use 3D objects, similar to the ones already released in Blackwood but asymmetrical. We also updated the crash barriers to a more accurate size and depth that works well with the new lighting system.

Here are some comparisons of real photos with LFS screenshots.

The new shadows are generated in real time so the same type of shadow is used for buildings, fences, cars and other moving objects. Layout objects all have a shadow and this is helpful in the editor.
