The terrain forge was fired up tonight, and the virtual dump truck made dozens of runs into immersive reality. Compared with OpenSim where terrain megaprims can be fine-tuned to the precise size requirement, in Second Life I must back-calculate the scale from actual terrain sculpties. Apparently my trusty Gene Replacement 40-meter spheres can be induced into 35.70-meter terrain blocks, using the method I developed for use in Level 2 OpenSim build of UC Berkeley. This version 0.9 of the terrain made some mis-calculations about the ultimate size of the top sections of each sculpted prim. Look for better scale control with version 0.91 soon!
