Description

I think if the renderer was changed so that a bsp
structure is not needed at runtime in favour of Portal
rendering (a la BUILD), it would allow for various
features planned in ver 2 ie:
Sector Over Sector
Sector's sharing the same world space
Slopes
Dynamic sectors that can move on the horizontal plane.
This would also make polyobjects redundant.

This is interesting. I will first have to study how exactly
the portals work, though. Doomsday 2.0 should use the best
method available.

Good thinking. The possibility of a Buildsday is even closer
now. Two similiar but different engines. If SkyJake works on
Doom and someone translates and code's a Build version,
WOW.
