Well, I sorta agree. I do agree that dimensions are the most important thing -- that all the pictures in the world don't matter if you can't get the size and proportions of the structure right. But, OTOH, some level of detail is important, and you can't get that from numbers. Back in 1984, we could get simple buildings lacking detail in MS Flight Simulator, and they looked absolutely awful. Even by standards then, they looked awful to me. I'd certainly like them to look something like the real thing now. -c -- Chris Metzler [EMAIL PROTECTED] (remove "snip-me." to email) "As a child I understood how to give; I have forgotten this grace since I have become civilized." - Chief Luther Standing Bear
