Just a thought : on windows, there is a system call that enable a program to
receive events when a files in a subtree changes. I don't know for Linux and
other unix though. I already heard about something called FAM but I don't 
know if it is built in the kernel now. And I have no idea about the MAC situation.

This could allow automatic scenery update while running and avoid to have 
ocean tiles when we travel too rapidly.
