There is no native format of normal maps, it is a matter of very simple to change processing in single place (NormalMap). Corona AFAIK uses what 3dsmax uses, or what somebody requesting the feature originally recommended

Just FYI, lightmerge was banned today after rambling something about respect, edgy gamers, and jaroslav's death in my private messages.

I am not a developer
Not with that attitude! You just need to believe in yourself! Lightmerge already believes in you, you can do it!

We tried, but the thing is that no matter how much we stress it, some people just cannot read. We just cannot announce "we would like to try these things for v8" becasue of this :/. Still even after something is on shortlist the continuing demand may play a role if we need to make a decision what to boot from the next release, so dont hesitate to support your favorite feature.

wait, what about decals? Was this added already, how did I miss that?
There might or might not be something done, but sadly because some of the users cannot understand that a feature might get postponed when unexpected complications occur, we will generally announce only features that are fully done ;)

is that 0.5 GB after compression? Usually it compresses well

Also we can probably fix this even without trying running without vray, I was just asking because it would help us speed the process up.

You deleting the minidump does the exact opposite.

there is an exception originating in vray, can you try uninstalling/disabling vray to see if it helps?

Can we get some info on the Decals?
How will they work or is it too early to tell?
They are an object you apply a material with opacity mask to, that is it. No additional setup necessary

There are usually some features being developed for further releases at the end of one cycle, this is definitely not the first time ;).

This time the timing was just right, if this was finished before the release, I would intentionally not publish it, because it would confuse people looking for this in v7

Tell me somebody please, how the voting works? Geo Pattern like tool is on the second/third place by voting and it is not in the plans for 8 version of Corona. Why and what is the point of voting?
this is one of the (main) sources we consider when deciding what to schedule for next version, but there are also many other factors such as individual customers stories, time complexities, new research coming up, needs for internal changes, ecoystem considerations, etc.

Just to add to the 'mapping should look identical years later', something interesting happened to me recently.
I rendered some initial images for a client. Quite a few materials used noise maps for different material properties. Then, my son wanted to install minecraft on my workstation, I hesitated but finally agreed - I knew I was asking for trouble and I got what I deserved.
The next time I rendered the same images - exactly the same file - all noises had a different look, like their seed has changed. ALL of them.
It wasn't too critical since it wasn't a final. But whatever caused it, must have been caused by installing other software on the machine, Max and Corona were not touched in any way.
Max noise is horrible and uses rand() feature
rand() is horrible by design and should not be used
Old Microsoft C++ implementations were horrible and it is not entirely out of question that the installer installed over the redistributables with another version that had different implementation of rand()

I recommend watching the daily builds section on this forum if you want to watch it daily, there is more detailed progress posted there
