Good point. Need to study up on VRML to see if its got the same
direction as I wanna go.
>> 3) Will it be easier to take ColdCore, delete all the frills that I don't

Hrmm... I'll have to give that some serious thought. The reason I thought
about doing from the Minimal up was simply that, the scope of calculations
that I *eventually* want to encompass (line of sight, 'hearing' based more
on distance between objects rather than in a room, and other things
that need to be based strictly on one objects position relative to another,
rather than a 'grouping' by rooms which may or may not have any relation
to size, etc) is going to be a CPU killer I think. My though was to
start fresh, and leave alot of the things that I *don't* need out so as
to save ticks/etc. However, I will have to look much more deeply into
ColdCore to make these decisions.
Ok, so now who do I bombard with email to get docs updated and a ColdCore
compatible with Genesis .3 ??
P.S. First one that tells me to get off my keister and finish it myself,
had better be prepared for the end result :)
