       zephyr - Lose your way wandering some height fields, and enjoy candy.


       zephyr  [-root]  [-window]  [-install]  [-display  host:display.screen]
       [-visual visual] [-window-id id] [-delay usecs] [-fps] [-crack]  [-lit]
       [-boring]  [-letterbox]  [-flat] [-wire] [-nowater] [-visibility float]
       [-color string] [-nsubdivs integer]


       Flies through height maps, optionally animating the  instantiation  and
       destruction  of  generated  tiles;  by default, tiles ’grow’ into place
       (height gradually increased up to correct value).  In windowed mode the
       following key controls are available:

       left, right
               Turn left and right.

       a,w,s,d Move left, forwards, backwards, and to the right, respectively.

       1,2     Decrease and increase manual speed, respectively.

               Return to automatic control.


       zephyr accepts the following options:

       -root   Draw on the root window.

       -window Draw on a newly-created window.  This is the default.

               Install a private colormap for the window.

       -visual visual
               Specify which visual to use.  Legal values are the  name  of  a
               visual  class,  or the id number (decimal or hex) of a specific

       -delay microseconds
               Delay between frames; default 20000 (1/50th of a second).

       -fps    Display frame per second and polygon counts.

       -crack  Use all possible methods to animate tile instantiation.

       -boring Do not animate instatiation at all; use this  to  get  standard
               landscape generator behavior.

               Drawable  window  region has a 16:9 aspect ratio, regardless of
               actual window size.

       -lit    Enable lighting.

       -flat   Flat shading (OpenGL will use one color per  primitive,  rather
               than interpolating betwixt vertices).

       -wire   Wireframe.

               Do  not  display  ’water’  (forces negative values to zero, and
               selects a different coloring method).

       -visibility float
               Value in range [0.2,1.0] (default 0.6) specifying proportion of
               viewable XY plane which is to be drawn upon.

       -color string
               Selects  color  scheme.   Use  with  no  or  bogus argument for
               current list.

       -nsubdivs integer
               Number of times to recursively subdivide each triangular  tile.
               Each  increment increases total triangles by a factor of 4; for
               instance the default setting 4 results  in  256  triangles  per


       DISPLAY to get the default host and display number.

               to  get  the  name of a resource file that overrides the global
               resources stored in the RESOURCE_MANAGER property.
