Alien Lander

I’ve been playing around trying to replicate the amazing computer graphics Alan Sutcliffe created for the landing sequence in the 1979 movie Alien. Mr Sutcliffe wrote an amazing article about his "Magic Mountains" project in the June 1981 issue of Creative Computing that explains his technique in detail.

I'm taking a much lazier approach and just throwing modern CPU at it. My version uses Cinder 0.9.x and requires OpenGL 3.2.

Right now it just lets you fly across a low resolution height map of the United States.
