How you calculating those 10-1 (or even 10*10-4) pixels? I though about sin/cos functions.

"Don't know if you have started working on Helicopter or not .. If not I would recommend working on it first, its physics and such .."

That is exactly what I did. I am happy with current physics and now I need terrain.

"Terrain is NOT THAT important , you can ALWAYs add it later on .."

It is later. I need terrain to create missions (my project is not shooter).
