Battletech Live

Online, Turn-Based Battletech – Development Logs

How the heck did they do that?

I started looking around last night, on a partially unrelated subject, Google Maps for Sim City, and came up with some interesting results.  One site listed a 3D landscape of Hong Kong, apparently because the Chinese government doesn’t like it when it’s country is photographed in high resolution.  The article then linked to http://www.youcity.com, a social networking site that uses a 3D city interface, in this case made of New York.  Both of these rock unbelievably hard.  The detail is good and the pages render very quickly. If Battletech Live could be made with this sort of detail and still conform to hexagon tiles, it would kick butt.
