Progress on the GIANT map

Some progress on the "whole mountain at once" level. That's 4km x 4km worth of mountain. We have code to reduce those 14 million verts down to a manageable level once we're happy with the layout.

New video with flips. I replaced the vid in the first post with this. It's also on a new experimental huge mountain map that we're working on.

This video does a good job of showing off all the animation blending going on.

More progress on mountain creation

We're working out more of the details in the mountain creation. We're definitely going with whole ski-resort sized maps with lots of trails on them. These trails here are just rough outlines.

This sounds like it could be a great game. I'll have to check out the first one now.

The mountain tool is getting a lot better now. There's still a lot of work to do on it though.

Better cliff textures

Triplanar cliff textures help a ton.

Completely revised the skirt and added a lot of trail detail. The video is getting pretty out of date.
