    If you load a renamed map file the cubemaps and other packed resources will break.

    Fixing cubemaps is easy so I do not imagine that to be an issue. What else breaks?

    Rebuilding cubemaps or changing file paths changes the map's CRC.

    First CRC then edit that stuff in memory?

    How about a message box that can fix the problem for you?

    "Your map differs from the server, delete old map and reconnect? [Y/N]"

    That's actually not that bad of an idea.

    It's about as simple as it gets, but while my idea requires a tad more effort, it's seamless

    But it breaks the lighting, so I'm actually for a revert.

    If that was the case I don't see why graphics have ever advanced in the first place. The map was made with specific lighting in mind, the mapper made that decision to sacrifice performance a little for better aesthetics on the map. They should also have the choice to not do that and prefer performance instead. It's not the programmers jobs to fuck up their work to scrape up a few extra frames a second.

    It's already broken though: mp4
    If light cache limit is increased, maybe it'll at least be "less broken" :v (and not ruin the framerate)

    I know its broken but that recent change broke it for all the other maps and no its not just me.

    Willox did the tests and figured out it was that change by Robotboy increasing the lightcache that caused this to happen.

    You can see the difference yourself going from Main to Dev. And having increased lightcache doesn't quite make it up for the broken lighting afterwards.

    This isn't a very big deal but when you scale models non uniformly in gmod the model normals look wrong. I think if you normalize the vertex normal in the vertex shader it would solve this problem.



    The phong here looks very exaggerated because the of the bad model normals.

    But I'm not sure if any addons rely on this effect. There could maybe add a new material/shader flag that can be set per entity to fix this.

    Just to inform anyone who are not filled in or don't know what the latest Garry's Mod update was about; it was a hotfix for a exploit that allowed for reading files anywhere on the computer that had recently blown up (which included FileZilla passwords, which is what it's main purpose was) and thankfully has now been fixed. Praise Kilburn and or Willox, may they be given Ferraris for their great accomplishments!

    Rubat is actually more rich than Garry.

    Word on the street is that he'll be buying FP from Garry along with his house and everything else.

    That 0.05% of the user base on 32bit Mac systems.
    as mentioned before GMod runs in 32 bit on all platforms...
    Therefore it would affect all GMod Mac users. (I don't know the percentages of that)
