Dinosaur Island is huge!

There are four stegosaurus in this picture to scale. Can you find them? Screen capture.

We have just begun the process of importing the Dinosaur Island data into the 3D engine. The terrain textures are not  in place, the vegetation is not in place, the animated water is not in place, the dinosaurs are not in place, but the sheer scale of the island blew us away.

We had to make a video of a flyby so you can see just how big Dinosaur Island is. Sorry for the poor quality, we just grabbed a video camera and filmed off the screen.

The video starts by zooming over 4 stegosaurus in the foreground. The music is by Ezra Sidran (piano) and Jason Stuart (guitar).

  1. Yes, it was a real shock when I started plugging the data into the 3D engine. It was so much LARGER than I expected. Yes, I know that it’s 2 kilometers by 2 kilometers but… well, it’s really huge!

    Next step is adding all the different terrain types and then the vegetation!
