This thought has occured to me before, but I am wondering: has anyone ever tried to render an entire terrain using only parallax occlusion mapping (or some other form of steep parallax)? What I mean is, send a flat piece of geometry with a good heightmap and normal map, and then do a massive occlusion mapping shader? Obviously there are many issues, like clipping terrain edges to the sky, writing to z-buffer, performance, etc.
