Dynamic Daylight

I have made dynamic sunlight and shadow support wired to the UI, so the sun position can be controlled interactively. The engine calculates the sun position by using azimuth and elevation as parameters. Sun and fog color is adjusted according to the elevation by using a color gradient generated with GIMP. The result can be seen here:
