Dynamic, physically accurate skydome!

Following Rayleigh scattering theory (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rayleigh_scattering), I coded a SkyDome section in INFINITO that allows to create and customize your own sky dome tweaking several parameters. Watch the movie for more information and see it in action!

Loading greyscale heightmaps and wavefront obj’s!

INFINITO features list is growing very quickly. I just added the possibility to load custom heightmap images, and even to load wavefront object files (and related texture), so that you will be able to interface INFINITO with every terrain generation software you like! As usual, comments are suggestions are welcome!

New feature: the Presets Library!
