[devblog] Mansion Court and Hair Physics

Heya!

It's time for a mid-sized update! With version 0.9.4, The Mansion is now available as the first indoor court in Pixel Tennis. It is the most detailed court yet and should set a baseline for the games graphical capabilities. You can select it in multiplayer mode or play it in singleplayer, after you reached a certain level.

If you played Pixel Tennis for some time, you might have noticed one of the random loading screen texts, which said "Now with improved hair physics". This was intended to be some nonsense, when the player models were basic pills. Now, the game actually supports hair physics - because... why not?
