Nice.  I'm sure you're aware that projects like that can really suck you in,
especially when you're all fresh and full of energy.  ;)


(The long term idea was to make this an entire ground-level detail planet, fully
customizable, and with zoomable camera views to both adapt and limit the LOD
based on distance from the camera.)




I'm currently up to my ears in sorting out some RL stuff, so I haven't gotten
back to any of the old projects or gotten sucked into any of the many new
projects that are lined up... ;) :D
Hopefully some of that provides you with some ideas and inspiration - it will be
nice to see another approach to this topic.  Good work so far.
