Teammate Nicknames and Markers

Nicknames are now displayed above players.
In addition, added blue markers bellow the player.
This should help to distinguish teammates from enemies.

Dual Wield

Weapons are handled dynamically on each hand.
This gave me a few ideas for the new weapon sets.
Weapon can contain melee on the right hand and pistol on the left hand, activating melee as secondary attack.

74 days without a thread update, but no worry, I've been doing weekly updates on discord!

Directional Shadows

In last two months I've went through 2 iterations of directional lighting.
At first I have utilized depth map to pass height of each shadow.
Drawback was that you cannot pass softness & transparency when using depth maps.
This leaves you with hard shadows.

After some benchmarking, the highest chance for bottleneck is reaching pixel fill rate limit (overdraw).
To improve performance and visuals I've started to look for different lighting solutions.

Currently, the lighting system uses RGB channels to pass different layers of soft lighting.
Red = floor shadows
Green = wall shadows
Blue = higher shadows (not used)
