I haven't seen this topic brought up before so here goes.
I think it'd be a really cool idea to be able to add custom texture files to the Optics engine. There're so many things you could do with that option.

Thanks for your consideration. biggrin

Can you go into a bit more detail about what you'd want such a feature to do?

1. It'd make a wicked cool and very interesting way to make a title sequence.
2. You'd give objects an almost 3D appearance since you can rotate them in the optics engine.
3. You could make really cool looking targeting sites kinda like in Terminator or Iron man.

There's other stuff but I just woke up and am really sleep groggy.
