Panga is one of many stock cars available in Re-Volt. In addition, it is also the final stock car listed in the Car Selection Screen. It is a Glow-fueled vehicle with a 4WD drivetrain, classified under the Pro rating. The vehicle is quite unique and odd in appearance, as it consists of an intimidating panda, who is mounted onto a cart. With that said, Panga is very large in size, being much bigger compared to its competitors, and as such, Panga is a relatively heavy vehicle. It has a mass of 2.5 kilograms, which is impressive as it weighs 500 grams more than the modal weight. This makes Panga very resistant to damage and impact from Pickups, taking the strongest of items such as the Bomb with very little consequences.
Huki announced a new shader based rendering engine for RVGL. The first build was released today, and is open for testing. See the original post for more details. As said by Huki, its "main intention is to support the Re-Make project", and "the secondary goal is to possibly have RVGL on platforms like iOS and Android, that are based on GLES 2+ (which is mostly a subset of GL Core and requires a shader version)" It's also expected to show higher throughput and better power efficiency on newer cards and devices.
The limit of players in a race was increased to 16 in a recent RVGL release (17.0325a) among new commands in the Waiting Room and other fixes and changes. These were suggested due to issues in Re-Volt I/O organized races.
A new importer-exporter plugin is being developed by Marv and Dummiesman to run in the latest version of Blender: HabitatB. For now only prm files are accepted, but it is still good news for those interested in creating content, since Jigebren is no longer updating his plugin or was even interested to release it in public.
