Not to impose, but is it particularly taxing on the hardware to have the water reflection and refraction shader adjust the texel offset for reflection/refraction based on the distance from water to the reflected/refracted object (by height or l2 norm, though height is loads easier and looks about th...

Fascinating, though I'm a bit surprised that you didn't mention anything about GeoCore's history (assuming it is actually the game formerly known as Core Decision, rather than something completely new using Core Decision's second working title).

I was experimenting a bit with PG on stream, and testing whether tri-chording (that is, velocity isn't normalized, so moving along all 3 axes at once gives you a sqrt(3) times speed boost) works. I didn't do any rigorous tests, but what little I did suggests it does. Is this true? Note that I'm fine...
When I have multiple missile types available, it would be nice if there was a number near the missile type's name showing how many of those missiles I have. It looks like there is enough space, and it would help to know before switching what I can sensibly switch off to.
