Version 35.9
Game::Obj now has additional parameter - id, which is automatically set to a random value at object creation, this is useful for referencing objects taking in mind that they can later be removed
new helper class Reference working as an object reference (using pointer to object and its 'id' member)
new tutorial "game basics/object references" showing how to properly use object referencing using Reference class
added new methods for ObjParams class allowing for programatic configuring this class objects (not only through World Editor)
new class MeshOverlay as an alternative to Markers, MeshOverlay is slower but it's overlay applies only to the specified mesh
new function World.terrainAddOverlay used for applying image overlays onto the terrain
new function World.terrainAddMarker used for applying Markers onto the terrain
new tutorial "game basics/big overlays" showing how to properly use Mesh Overlays
new tutorial "game basics/small overlays" showing how to properly apply Markers on Objects
Mouse Extend tool now closes FireFox tabs on middle mouse button, just like on Internet Explorer
added Number2 and Number3 classess (similar to Vec2, Vec classess)
changed default orientation of Marker matrix (from now on x,y vectors determine surface vectors, and z determines perpendicular to the surface)
updated tutorials "rendering/markers" and "game basics/pathfind"

Re: Version 35.1
World Editor will now highlight scale textline of objects which are scaled but have Phys bodies disallowing scaling
new members Image::color, color_add
new tutorial "projects/inventory"
removed 'power' component of 'Sun' and 'LightDir' - only 'color' component should be used
mesh outlines can now be used with transparency
updated tutorial "rendering/mesh outlines"
Renderer.screenShot now has additional parameter 'alpha' which can include saving alpha transparency in images
World Editor can now set additional grass range visibility
Mesh Editor and World Editor can now select new ambient light values
keyboard shortcut constructor (KbSc) now automatically detects if the input is 'char' or 'KB_BUTTON''
fixed importing wavefront .obj files with no texture coordinates
importing wavefront .obj formatu automatically generates materials and textures
new additional virtual method Game::Obj::itemRemoved(), similar to itemRemoved(Item&) but called after removal of the item
multiple suns may now be used ('Sun' has been changed into a container of 'Suns')
new parameter Sun::glow allowing to specify if a sun glows
new parameter Sun::blend allowing to specify if sun gfx should be blended or added onto the screen
replaced parameter Sun::sun_color with gfx_color which is of U32 type, and contains alpha channel
new tutorial "rendering/suns"
added 'clear' method and comparing operators to Reference class
Actor::addForce(Vec force,Vec pos), addVel(Vec force,Vec pos) now apply forces in world space, not local space
new method Actor::addImpulse(Vec impulse,Vec pos) which applies an impulse at given world space position
updated tutorial "game basics/small layers" to use more correct vectors for actor impulse applying

Re: Version 35.2
changed parameters in Mesh::setRender method
replaced Const game object modifier to Access Mode (default, const, embedded into terrain)
updated documentation "Resources/Objects" describing usage of object Access Modes
added support for very big static objects (of size more than 32 meters) through ACCESS_EMBED object Access Mode
if an object in World Editor doesn't have Mesh, but has Phys, Phys will be used for drawing the object instead of a simple ball
Phsb::draw and Phys::draw now show physical bodies of all types (including Mesh and Convex)
object preview in World Editor now shows physical bodies of Mesh and Convex type
importing .ase format in Mesh Editor now automatically imports materials and textures
Worlds need to be rebuilded in World Editor (Menu\Main\Build)
Mesh Editor will now display error message when creating a skeleton with more bones than available maximum allows
added keyboard shortcuts for World Editor allowing to move like a FPP camera
World Editor will now highlight scale textline of objects which are scaled but have Phys bodies disallowing scaling, or the object is too big and it's not in ACCESS_EMBED mode

meshes which want to use ambient member must be rendered in RM_LIGHT mode
added support for lightmaps
added support for b3d (BlitzMax) file format
fur length is now calculated from Material::detail_power (unlike previously color.alpha)
new texture control parameter D.texQuality allowing to decrease default texture quality (by using smaller mip maps)
