3089 Update: Shadows, Questing & Multiplayer improvements

Hey all,

The biggest thing in this update are shadows, which bring a great new look to 3089:

The shadows will follow the sun & fade away at night and during overcast conditions. They are also quick, so even lower-end machines should be able to use them, but there is the option to turn them off in the “Effects Config”.

I also improved two situations that may have been troublesome for some newbies: I’ve removed roads from the starting town, since in some situations, it replaced space for important buildings. I’ve also made sure easy, medium & hard quests get generated. They will be sorted, with the easiest (e.g. fewest quest tasks) first.

Still lots of work to do with multiplayer, but it should be a bit more stable & robots should synchronize in basic situations. I’ll be working on getting damage & boxes to synchronize next.

OK, back to work!
