Hello, the team that applied for february is as follows:
- dezGusty
- Pappe
- Psycho
- fusion44
- Dratz-_C
- turan

The development tasks that were discussed so far, and which I would like us to focus on are:
- UI refresh (start integrating a new skin: http://sumwars.org/forum/index.php?topic=438.0)
---> assigned to: dezGusty, Pappe

- minimap rework (http://sumwars.org/forum/index.php?topic=387.msg3086#msg3086)
---> task reactivated by turan

- testing, building: highly important for the material-system-056 branch (which should be renamed anyway), as we still have no merge of GPU based shadows into the default branch.
---> assigned to: fusion, Dratz, Psyhco.

(if you have anything else you would like to contribute, feel free to let us know)  :)

Ok to get this started I've created a precompiled binary, which is uploading right now :)
I have noticed some problems with the shadows which should be fixed before doing a merge.
I've made a comparission images with default branch and the shadow branch:

The lighting is missing in the main menu.

The new shadows alter the appearence of the game quite a bit. We need to adapt all the levels to the new look.

Take a look at this video which makes the problem quite apparent, especially in the second half of the video:

I'll try and think about how and where the file format for the regions need to be changed to adapt it to the new look.
One quick solution would be to add a flag to disable shadows in some regions completely.

greetings,
Stefan
