Unfortunatly the 2D strategic map became to slow in regard of scrolling and refreshing the terrain. So I had to change to a 3D map and once again fight with openGL. Especially displaying the names of the settlements was a pain in the... Also had to sort some of the code, methods, classes and whatever else. Took me some days and some hadaches. Anyway, all went well, and on the right there is the first flyover over the newly generated 3D map of Ireland and Britain. I am not happy with all of the 3D models yet, but I will probably first concentrate on the long-awaitet economics of the simulator.
