    Ok, now that I’ve got that out of the way, here’s a question, worth 20 points, and a chance at the bonus round.

    In the Bryce interface, on the upper left, there’s a navigation device, which is a terrain. Surrounding the terrain, there are shapes on the 4 corners. A cube, a sphere.. what are the other two? One appears to be either a cone, or a pyramid shape, but this has been bugging me for a few days now, and no one seems to know.

    By the way, hit my site sometime, I’ve been a very busy beaver lately. 🙂

    one’s a pyramid, the other is a cylinder cone. Analysis of the different views is what makes it possible: Pyramid pretty obvious, the other looks like a circle from above, but a pyramid/cone from the side. (Note: I built the scene in the scene and viewed it from different perspectives just to help. Then I completed the scene and saw that cylinder was wrong; it was a cone.)

    So what’s for the bonus round? 😉
