Holy Foliage, Batman!

OK, ok, I haven't posted in a while, and the truth is I haven't flown in a long time either. But Sitemeter is telling me I still get a fair number of visitors each week, so I thought I'd pass along this little tidbit.

Did you know there is a company whose main business is creating simulated trees for computer games? I came across this while browsing around, and their stuff looks really neat. Given how far graphics technology and MSFS has come in the last 10 years, I wouldn't be suprised to see something like this in a flight simulator some time in the next 10 years. Check out the web site, and don't miss the videos. There' s a really nice one showing trees bending under the downwash of a helicopter.
