I have updated my texture loading unit to include compressed TGA files. You can download the new unit here.

This example on the right is used to demonstrate the use of the transparent TGA files. By transparent TGA files I mean 32bit TGA files that have a alpha mask included in the file. These images can be used to create complex looking objects while they are only drawn on a single quad. eg. Trees and fences
In the screenshot on the right I used only 7 quads to create the metal object.

This example also demos the use of fog in a scene.
