A new version of Raspberry PI has been released.
Most likely for the new gpu they will release a vulkan api.
Compressed texture patterns of models (units, structures) are displayed correctly.
But with compressed landscape textures, textures with an alpha channel are not displayed correctly, unlike version 3.1.5.
For me, this is a mystery.
But even so it was possible to reduce the download time of the beginning of the battle.
And also increase the FPS, which favorably affects the delay in multiplayer on weak machines.
We can use compressed textures only to the models at this stage.

I think it makes no sense to implement the lighting, but just take what Nvidia offers.
hardware lighting is always better than software in terms of speed. Other manufacturers will sometime implement hardware lighting anyway.
