|Summary||0001889: HUD target box doesn't render lighting correctly|
|Description||The HUD target box in the lower left corner of the screen displays a miniature model of the currently targeted object.|
FS2Open does not render lighting on this model, while the rest of the engine does.
Furthermore, a key command (default Shift-Alt-Q) lets you change between 'standard', 'wireframe only' and 'wireframe with textures' rendering in the HUD target box.
//2==wireframe with textures
This does not work correctly, and I have real doubts as to what "wireframe with textures" would actually look like.

|Suggested patch has been attached.|
It was never supposed to use lighting in the targetbox, so that's not a bug. :) I think it has been brought up in the forums before and is always dismissed as a design decision or something, I can't remember exactly.
The wireframe with textures thing is something that I worked on at one point but never could get it working properly with HTL mode. It is basically just outline mode. However, since line drawing HTL models is insanely slow, and the feature is only available as a (non-default) option for the targetbox and in FRED, I quickly gave up on trying to get it working since it just wasn't worth the effort.

|Target box miniatures are likely fullbright so the player can see the entire form of the targeted ship in the box instead of just the parts that are lit.|
|I'll be leaving this dormant until 3.6.10 is out. I still think it's a good improvement (while not affecting the option to use the current approach), but as a feature it will have to wait until after the code freeze is lifted.|

This is working as designed. A fully lit version could be added as a 4th option in the target box mode. The standard is also used because fully lit means a lot of render time.
"wireframe with textures" currently doesn't work.
Resolved / feature in r6870.
The third unused hud target box rendering style has been enable to provide a standard render with proper lighting.
