Topographically Speaking

17 days to go. As promised, I've hacked together heightmap functionality; this one is based off the diamond-square algorithm. Next up: lighting, texturing, keyboard and mouse interaction, and some kind of sky (I'll probably go with skybox for that one.) Real-Time is coming along, albeit not as quickly as I had hoped. We're now working out an issue with the sensor modules; either the modules don't always send the right number of bytes, or we're dropping bytes somewhere in our serial drivers. Either way, we've got to figure this out and reliably track the movements of a single train to within a few centimetres by Monday.
