I miss seeing a somewhat playable game and it has been literally months since I last had the game in a stable state. We are putting a lot of effort into starting the process of putting everything back together properly.
As you can see in the image above we got rocks and multiple trees into the game finally. While this might not seem like a massive accomplishment, I assure you it was. It required that I finish the custom object mod system and re-implement the biome system to allow those objects to be loaded. Beyond that I setup animation capability for all object types.
The biome system is far from complete and the chunk system needs to be re-written one last time (using the same ideas as before but just done in a more efficient manner). You'll notice the low framerate in the image above and I want you to know that is only because there are 10+ duplicates of each object on the screen inside of each of those objects. Like I said, the biome system needs to be fixed up a bit.
I also made some minor changes to the initial loading screen. The loading is a bit faster and the texture page compilation is actually displayed properly now (instead of it just freezing for a few seconds).
