As far as I can tell, Lud's flashlight looked very realistic, especially considering the limitations of the Doom Engine. But what is it Blox would have done, and would it have been possible to implement in the Doom Engine? It wasn't very clear...
That was Caligari's flashlight. I've never made one, lol.

Caligari's flashlight looks very good, but as mentioned by him its also extremely limited. Its basically using a large normal omnidirectional dynamic light to cast the lighting, and then several overlays to serve as masks, restricting what you can see. As he mentioned, this means that all other lighting on the map is kind of voided.

aw man, projected textures would be so nice in gzdoom. you could replicate flashlight technology from the far in the future year of 2004, yay.

To be fair, what Blox was suggesting is, in theory, possible. It's basically another application of the type #1 flashlight, just change the spawned light to a large soft one to simulate bounced light. That's doable. However, it's not going to look very good until we have real spotlights to create the projected beam in the first place. I could tack such an application onto the overlay type, but said overlays would mostly negate it.

Kill Bill no Ken (aka a fukken death punch bloodbath)
I was going to make this a standalone mod but decided to include it as a powerup in another of my mods to prevent the gimmick from getting old too fast (although I can't think of a reason why anyone would get tired of death punching nazis into bloody mist lol)

In regards to the per pixel lighting thing nash and rachel posted, any reason it doesn't work with voxels? Arent voxels converted to 3d models in gl mode? (I know it was an unfinished version of the feature, i was just wondering)
