Featured GDNet+ Journal Entry
Rendering Systems - RSI shares the source to one of his MFC controls for anyone to use in their projects. He also shows of Woody's root system. I love games where you can topple trees with guns and missiles - imagine one where the tree topples based on how deep a root system it has, and when it does all those roots fly up with it
