16coreBug ReportLowsay doesn't work on dedicated servers.New
Task Description

Since the 'say' chat command is now used to chat in the current zone,
it become useless on dedicated servers because the console does
not have a current system.

There are several ways to solve this:
- Have say behave like shout
- Add an extra parameter to say to indicate the zone to chat in
- Provide a way for the console to set the current zone

13clientFeature RequestLowSupport for non us-qwerty keyboard layouts.New
Task Description

Right now the client keyboard input code is hardwired
to a US-QWERTY layout. It should use the native keyboard
layout of the user.

At the same time, the code should be tested for UTF8.

12renderFeature RequestLowLight Flare OcclusionNew
Task Description

Having light flares occlude behind objects would allow more detailed flares to be used. The following is a screenshot from Mass Effect, and is the back of the Normandy:

If this were tried in Osirion with a regular light entity and a similar flare texture, it would be partially visible from behind surfaces, which is not the desired effect as the light shouldn't be making a flare if it's seen from behind a wall. This is also the reason why most of the flares in Osirion are circular, because a horizontal flare(also known as the 'film-style' flare) is too difficult to get right when it can move in all angles.

In the end, this might actually lower performance a tiny bit because each flare has to be checked if it's behind a surface, but if a flare is completely blocked, it shouldn't render at all which would make up for the loss.

Q3 has several methods of doing this, including a timed fade, real fade, and instant.

Timed fade: when a flare becomes visible, begin rendering the quad and slowly increase its size and alpha from 0 until it reaches the size indicated by the entity. The rate of size increase is based on a simple timer.
Real fade: like timed fade, begin rendering the quad once visible but instead of using a fixed timer, only increase the size and alpha depending on how much of the flare is in view. I believe this is done via the size indicated in the entity, and is based on how much of it at its full size is visible(I'm guessing an invisible quad at max size is used to test this). This method is best because it can be tweaked to allow the flare to overlap the surfaces in front of it by a small amount, making it look very realistic.
Instant: the flare is instantly visible at max size and alpha as soon as the light entity's origin is visible by the camera.

Symptom: When rotating the ship, cubemap reflections are not rotated in effect, and stay in the default rotation axis.

5coreBug ReportLow'give ship x' while moving makes player unable to contr...Assigned
Task Description

At random, if you use 'give ship' while your ship is moving, you can be trapped in a state where you cannot turn or move in any direction. You are still given the new ship, however, and if you use 'give ship' a few more times, you can recover from the problem.

Leaving this as low-priority since 'give ship' is technically a cheat. Setting this as category 'src' because the cause is unknown.

4renderPlanned FeatureLowZ-Fail Stencil ShadowsNew
Task Description

If a real-time shadowing method is to be used, sharp stencil shadows would be more in-line with the game's visual style. It apparently can be done with very little code.

3renderBug ReportLowMerged patch mesh points produce bad results on IntelNew
Task Description
