Release: HeroEngine 2.5

Codename: Quartz

Internal Branch Versions


Release Dates: March 2014 - Present


Notes

Quartz is a major inter-release update to HeroEngine Sapphire. This release includes a number of major feature, functionality, and performance changes and improvements.


Among other major changes, alpha blended materials no longer automatically make a mesh non-collidable. This addresses both a consistency issue, and the case where a mesh has a combination of non-alpha blended and alpha blended materials, e.g.: a spaceship with an alpha blended force field around it. Collision, or lack thereof, is now driven purely by the collision or node type.
