    @Wood, I did the exploring version first, then a friend showed me the embiggened one. Definitely more fun to explore, but the big one is neat just to see the sheer scope of the thing.

    That 'ponytail equation' one is very likely to find it's way into videogames to be honest, we've always sucked at modelling hair and that'll go a long way to helping us do a simulation that's a bit more than just 'string of sausages'.

    Sure, but you just know it will get put into the game in time for E3, and then pulled back out for performance reasons.

    That's right, why share ?

    On the other hand, once you're down to thinking that way, you might as well drink it straight up from the bottle.
