Reverie,
Is there any way you can patch the game to allow disabling shadows entirely? Right now when you turn Shadows off, the game still has minor shadow effects on the map that look terrible and drain system resources.

If there was some way to disable those minor shadow effects that would be great.

We checked into this - and doesn`t look like we`ll be able to work this into tomorrow`s patch. The main reason - next week we`ll have brand new shadows code finally ready - it`ll make shadows look and perform much much better (With ability to disable as well). We apologize for the delay - one more week.

Sweet, I'll take a new shadow code over having to disable it any day. I have a beefy rig, but I turn off shadows unless the code is really well optimized. I can be patient for anything that is worth waiting for!
