And anyway, there's also the example of New Zealand where you can drive for half an hour and find yourself in a completely different landscape. It's why they film so many movies there - all the landscapes you need for a setting are within easy reach. After visiting NZ's South Island, I stopped complaining about totally different landscapes in games being smushed so close together... smile Because they really can be like that in real life!

Listen if its not made of tiny bits of sun-bleached animal poop then I am not stripping down naked and lying on top of it. I have standards...

or possibly a fetish.
