The starting IPP lineup is:

  • Audiokinetic - Wwise
  • Autodesk - Autodesk Gameware
  • Donya Labs - Simplygon
  • Geomerics - Enlighten
  • IDV - SpeedTree for Games
  • Intel - Intel Threading Building Blocks (TBB)

Here's something:

Give us users command over the horrid UDK camera controls.

And, for god's sake, make it easier to manipulate bsp. You still need bsp to mock up geometry, and Unreal's bsp modelling controls have always been atrocious compared to Hammer/Worldcraft.

Also, while on the topic of bsp, in my opinion lightmapping is a type of shading that should remain. As a technology it's obsolete. But as an art medium it is not. No art medium is obsolete. People are still using canvas now, which has been around for centuries.
