actually, the garbled it a bit, but I think I understand what you mean, hehe ;-)
The only problem is that pieces being to lose their geometry at higher angles.
Once you pass 45° it becomes terribly out-of-proportion; UV's get skewed, 3D
objects look blatantly wrong to the casual viewer, etc. (There is a need for
vertical scaling too, to put the object at an even 5 or 50cm interval.) And
again. we start to run into problems where it takes a human to figure out how to
scale it correctly to make it look good. And all this is very difficult to
retrofit to existing cache files :-( But your idea works great for retrofitting
existing objects! In fact, that's the same method I've used to make roller
coasters in the past ;-)
