Looking for a MeFi thread about a guy who created his own 3D terrain program from the ground-up. [more inside]

Used C++ (I think) on what I vaguely recall was VisualStudio.NET (I hope I'm wrong) and discussed the step-by-step learning and refining process he used to decrease processor load and increase detail. Included source-code, complete with documentation.

I had this and several other projects I used as learning experiences on an old flash drive that recently lost a battle with asphalt and a truck tire. The majority of the projects I eventually grew beyond in programming skill, but this one I want to get back and start tinkering.

If you click on that nice grey bar on the big blue page and type "terrain", that's the first thing you find. I have a hard time believing that you are capable of posting to MetaTalk but not of using the search feature.

"...who created his own 3D terrain program from the ground-up." Heh heh heh heh... From the ground up, geddit?

Despite all this evidence to the contrary.

No, really, you don't have to add snark when you're pointing out a flaw or error in logic. Really.

mystyk's incredulity is renowned, sir.

Yeah, laugh all you want, but I'm used to a MeFi with searches that don't work - one where you get "JRUN Error" as your most common result.

Cortex nailed it.
& thanks bob, that is the one.
