Yes, that's the *main* flaw (right now!) My plan is to re-write my code so that
the building widths and heights are based on strict multiples of the (small)
'tiled' window/facade photo images that I used. That should take care of the
chopped-off windows. (When I first started working on the scene, I was willing
to let that flaw pass...and others as well. But that philosophy isn't the 'road
to perfection'!! Especially if I want to see the buildings close-up.)
