Oculus Rift:
* Fixed Oculus Rift VS props so that it displays properly in the Property Manager
* Add IPD (interpupillary distance) setting to low level OculusRift initialisation
* Add OculusRift helper class to GraphicsEngine vcxproj/filters/include
* Add OculusRift SDK 0.2.2

* Prevent event and sample meta-buffers from attempting to advance the look-ahead buffer head past the end of the recorded stream
* Fixed a couple of debug text buffer overruns
Physics:
* Loose Objects: Increase capacity of event data replay buffer
Render:
* Renderer fix (OCR exclusions) to fix Xbox 360 compilation
Environment:
* WTC file updates including low layer cloud fade out for conditions that don’t use these types of cloud and keyframes for the water emap and spec factors so that it doesn’t glow so much at night
* Ocean and sky ring shaders using new tweakers

Build 482 (29/5/13, Senior Manager)


GUI:
* Added ‘time of day’ icons and text applinks for loading and in-race screens (not yet in game)

Renderer:
* Oculus Rift WIP (more low level plumbing)
* New DX11 texture loader – this is to fix the long standing purple texture/cracked glass bug and also reduces the current peak system memory usage caused by a workaround to defer the release of intermediate d3d textures

* Add DUMMY ENVMAP visualisation to F1 debug menu
* Modified thin client mip-skipping option to make it more useful
Shaders:
* Improved Water shaders (sea/riverbed transmission, fixed reflections plus global light level scaling)
