|1= I understand that generating the scenery from the raw data takes quite some CPU time.
 
How about creating a [http://boinc.berkeley.edu/ BOINC] project which could harness the idle CPU-power of many users to assist with this job?

|1= when our main scenery resource will be gone in a couple of weeks, we will have a hard time to create a new world scenery. Generating the entire world was a job that ran continuously for days - if not weeks, even on a powerful machin with almost unlimited resources. As we have to re-think the entire process anyway, I just had the idea to use our users resources for that, probably by using something like BOINC: https://boinc.berkeley.edu/trac/wiki/AppIntro We sure need to do many tweaks within the tool-chain, but I can't think of any reason why this should not work. Does anybody have experience with BOINC or alike?
