Black Dragon is MY Viewer, i decide which feature i want to add and which to remove, i share this Viewer to show the world that user base size is not important, i do rate quality by effort, thought and love put into the project, not some rough estimated numbers. I consider feature requests only if i you can name proper valid reasons i can agree on. It is my (unpaid) time i'm putting into this project, i'm not here to cater to every Joe's desires.

Black Dragon Viewer - Update 2.5 - Alpha 3 "Roaring Dragon"

Today, is the day, my birthday.

I thought it would be a good thing to make an update today, right?

So i took the last 2 days off of playing Stellaris and merged all the way up to the very latest Linden Release and broke the Viewer twice in the process. Seriously, it's broken this time. I swear.

As always i need feedback what's broken. Also, did you see the pitiful try of LL to explain the new jellydoll feature? It's finally official! Soon we shall all be single color low res sprites. Except me of course, my render complexity is always too damn low.

This update also contains some changes i did before i started getting occupied with Stellaris, including an updated object profile window...

the ability to control the alpha value in colors via the color picker... (only works with UI colors and only those who actually use it)

completely revamped pie menus...

and a bunch of other things i sadly don't have pictures of, such as my old SSFUI returning (partially).

Have fun.
