Interesting.. another Mod to fix some of the limitations with D3 Lighting . it will be usefull to recreate a diferent look with softer lighting in games.. mixed with real time per pixel lighting. :)

FInally soft shadows and soft lighting emulation in the game..that doesnt require a 10Giga watts lamp to hurt your eyes .,(aka.. bloom mods). :D

This technique aparently could be used too for quake4 mods ,to recreate a more closer style of quake3 lighting ,but enhanced with normal mapping and realtime lighting .

Wait till the Unified Lighting fanbois hear about this... :D

They'll probably rip you apart for using the words "limitation" and "D3 lighting" in the same sentence :D... Personally, I believe that the world is not yet ready for 100% real-time lighting, so this looks like a welcome mod.
