Description

Ability to add better 3D detail to levels, such as proper
cracks in walls, pipes hanging from ceilings, railings,
houses, flagpoles etc..... to levels.Not saying total 3D,
but so the detail could be increased aside from Hi-Res
tectures etc.........

Also, slope support. Now that Doom has mouse look support,
it can be feasable to put slopes in without risk of shooting
yourself (unless you shoot into the slope).

Another related idea. Ability to deform a sector. Choose one
or more points to be the peak or bottom, and have it turned
into a hill, spike, pit, rounded surface etc... Great for land,
forests (i don't think it is completely flat outdoors).

(P.S. I'm not saying make it into Red Faction and blow
everything up, if that is the idea your getting.)

Slopes are a part of my current version 2.0 plans. The
existing code base is too centered on the concept of planes
being flat on the XY plane; implementing slopes now would
mean endless hours of hacking to get everything working
properly. Practically the entire renderer would need to be
rewritten, and that's already in my 2.0 plans.

Slopes are not the subject of this RFE, though.

Not only slopes but the ability to make bumpy ground/floors
and ceilings. Even bumpy walls for a not so flat look in caves,
etc.. Stuff that is pushed out.

This could also be a way to fix the horrible switch problem in
d2retex. If you can alias a texture to be a switch texture,
and then map a 3d model switch onto it then suddenly youve
saved 300% space for each switch.

Hmm, this idea has an all new purpose. A space saver.
