I think there should be a demo of shaders and how they would look in fpsc. I am talking normal maps, parallax bump mapping, dot3, etc. It would be a very pleasing demo

Shouldn't we just wait for any kind of demo first anyway?

But a shader demo should be the first! Even U3 had it.

I hope custom vertex shaders are supported... I saw a tutorial on gamedev.net for a vertex shader that allowed full cel-shading, with inking and all... mm... cel-shading....

(Why do I even want to make a cartoon-style FPS?? Hmm...)

I have a feeling Shaders are a 'backburner' issue right now.
Personally I think it would be nice to see what they come up with, because a good Shader Material Engine would help.. but I very much doubt they'll got that route and decide to let you specify a Shader for a Material. Leaving it upto you to create or select from a bunch of generics.

Shaders are fluff. Almost every other part of development is more important at this point.

I would guess that a few initial shaders will be provided, but I certainly wouldn't expect anything near a full range.

Ian guesses right We'll have some base shaders for release and expand on this later.

Graphical Pipeline wise they're becomming more important.
This said for DBPs Graphics pipeline to extend properly they'd need to recode quite a bit of the engine ^_^
