Hello all,

The new PNG transparency works! Even >> I << can do it!

What you see below is a yellow wall. In front of the wall is an invisible (!) box covered with a texture/picture. The picture is mainly black, but the white parts in the picture have been made transparent.
So, the yellow parts in the black are parts of the wall that are visible when looking through the box.

All six sides being covered with the same texture, this isn't very useful. But this could be very useful when you want to make custom parts with custom textures. Example: an invisible box that has a partially transparent texture applied to one of its (vertical) sides. I may have to play a bit more with this.

If only I had the patience to learn how to use the Gimp... :-)
