Sky fix

The clouds are fixed for devices with broken 3D clipping. There are still occasional glitches on the Samsung Tab 4 7.0, but it’s barely noticeable now. I spent good 4 hours optimizing the new, more tesselated clouds, and the profiler says it’s not significantly slower than the old one.

I think you’ll agree this looks nicer than the one from the last post:

It’s only a kludge that moves the glitches out of the screen. It’s not 100% effective, so if you’re a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 owner, sometimes you may see spurious triangles here and there.

Moreover, I discovered that this tablet has really poor touch support. It constantly drops and reacquires touches. It makes playing game with move pads very frustrating. I had to switch to buttons. I can see that a person playing this game for the first time on this device will be annoyed, at least until he/she finds how to change controls mode to buttons.

Still a few more tweaks to make before 1.27.4.

    How do you upload a world? I’ve tried Dropbox, but it just makes them private stored worlds.
