I don't want the change though. Blob shadows are good. Dynamic blob shadows are better. Removing them would not only be extra effort for yet another feature less than 10% of players will use, but it would be outright foolish.
As for the 'majority' who voted against blob shadows (what, 20 to 18 on a single forum? On a game with over 50,0000 backers
) - most of them literally did not know what a blob shadow even IS. The word 'blob' made them have a knee jerk reaction. Not unlike the word 'orchestral'.
Make the forum great again.
