I got the idea from capn_midnight's optics work [smile] Basically the shading changes every 300ms down. This produces the effect that grass is moving in the wind... or maybe not, but either way it is really neat. I'll put it on the water probably... but thought that it was worth mentioning in this post.
I'm taking a break from audio programming because frankly its not going well. But I'll get back to it. I started working on getting events that can run every update (or every 3 updates etc) for things such as a follow event.
