Over 80 new features, fixes and improvements, here is a list of the most important:




Click to enlarge. More Screenshots here...

  • New paintengine with multilayer colour painting on 8 extra layers.
    Similar like in popular 2d paint programs you can turn the visibility of each layer on and off and you can change the opacity for it. All 8 layers will be rendered into one single colour texture, so no extra texture slot required.
  • Automatic lightmap generation and a GUI control for it.
  • Migrated to a lot newer versions of the libraries Artifex is based upon. Ogre 1.72 (stability), PagedGeometry 1.14 (grass can receive lighting).
  • Changed the mousepointer to native so it no longer disappears. Right mouse still works to drag GUI elements. Something many wished for.
  • Reworked and improved the existing terrain shader material.
  • New project templates: A triplanar rendering shader to avoid texture stretching upslopes. A singlepass shader without normalmapping.
  • New texture bar control to navigate through the textures for texture painting and editing.
  • Improved memory handling to reduce leaks and crashes.
  • Overhaul of most of the GUI and workflow to improve the user experience.
  • Improved the texture manipulation control and made it accessible via texture bar.
  • New system for filepath and filename handling.
...but of course there is a lot more to Artifex, you can find the rest of the features here.
