Yep, another news post. Today I have managed to get a basic first person style camera working to fly around the planet. I also got basic mesh deformations so the mountains actually stick up (really low rez and drastically not true scale though!). I should also mention that I got the new client to actually connect to the server and retrieve some data. Progress!
I also have been playing with planet appearance a bit. Nothing major though. Maybe I'll put up a new image and/or video soon.
