Hi!



Highlights:
To make the landscape a bit more interesting I added cliffs. They are great places to build on as the top is flat.

Improved lighting. Sky lighting is now more realistic and foliage lighting is much better.

Terrain super smoothing. You want is smooth.

Updated map assets for sand, snow and serveral plants.

Blocks and smooth voxels works much better together now. You can now place blocks partly inside the smooth terrain.

A screenshot of the savegame is now displayed on mouse over savegame name in the loading screen. Helps a lot when you have many savegames or bad memory :)

Lots of optimizations.
