Sorry Thomas. I didn't want to get on your nerves.
I still have a Moray 3.5 and a Povray 3.5 running on Windows XP and an even
older version of both on Windows 2000.

So if you a request for a .mdl file or files I can easily send the Povray files.

Ha! thanks indeed, well appreciated! :-)

I have everything I need in my archives, all back to the nineties. I 
have not been using Moray or Moray-derived scenes for many years and 
switched gradually over to the combination Silo - Poseray - POV_Ray for 
most things I do. At the moment, Moray is mostly a "Memory Lane" visit.

Good to hear that some people have a "Memory Lane"!
Thought I might be the only 'fossil' that visits that lane. (No offense meant)

TdG is an old geologist - so I'm sure that "fossil" would be most apropos.  :D

Hmmmm, yes - - - you are enigmatic, "totally tubular", mostly sessile ....

I dunno about "frond-shaped", though.

Indeed. A fairly accurate description. Following this I probably can 
expect a visit by (the ghost of) Stephen Jay Gould in the coming months. 
He wrote some interesting things about the Ediacara in (I think) 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ever_Since_Darwin  or 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Flamingo%27s_Smile the two volumes I 
have here...

/Hallucigenia/ from the Cambrian may inspire some of you for an 
animation? :-)

Hi Thomas,

just a PS as fossil:

that thing Hallucigenia - BE and me understand 'Hallucinogenia' better ;-)) -
reminds me of something that came out of Laurens Lapres' 'Pandora's Box' called
Lparser.
If I remember correctly the file(s) by Martin Higgs produced something that
looked like lobsters or crayfish - but in an 'alien' way (a crustacean of the
subclass Copepoda - definition from Lparser).

I still have a Lparser version 4.0 (the last version ever) running under MSDOS
6.2  and I am still able to us it. The tough part is to convert it to something
Povray 3.? can use. It outputs Povray 2.0 or the like.

@BE
Good to know that execept chemists we have a geologist on board, too.

Cheers, Droj

It looks convincing(ingly alien). With some work, the texture could be 
turned into a weird one indeed, for instance using the altitude/slope 
possibilities.
