I notice in AW3.0, one can ajust ambient lighting in a world, However I
think local lighting effects should be made possible. For example A room is
dark untill you tell it to be light (lol couldent think of any other
wording) or build a lamp or torch etc. Which would create light and dark
area's as in the real world. It would of cource cast shadows etc etc etc
etc. This would greatly add to the realistic quality of the software.
Possibly also make it possible to make a sun that rotates the world casting
shadows and a moon at night etc, perhaps pehaprs perhaps... :o)
Something else that could be handy would be someway of creating a mirror. I
dont know about the technical side of such an object that actually appeared
to reflect images would be but I just think it would be cool.
I dunno, maybe you dont want it too look realistic, or the technical aspects
of these ideas are such that would make it impossible to use. Maybe the idea
has already come up and been turned down? I dunnno.
Cheers for reading my utter garbage

Well, Eep, in all fairness, you probably would've said something similar had someone else posted a link to a page that doesn't
exist. I know it only took a little poking around, but still...

However, I would not have used a cynical smiley and I probably would've posted the correct link after I poked around the domain some...
