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:
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.
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 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).
Do not display ’water’ (forces negative values to zero, and
selects a different coloring method).
Value in range [0.2,1.0] (default 0.6) specifying proportion of
viewable XY plane which is to be drawn upon.
Selects color scheme. Use with no or bogus argument for
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.
