Civic Center terrain version 0.9 – dumped in Stanford region

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!
