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

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.
