Hi, i've taken Martijn's heightfield contribution from last week, made
it fit into the latest ODE revision (996) which required things like
adapting it to use the new 'final_posr' system.

I've also written a test_heightfield demo (based on test_boxstack) to
show that it does work - and it's definitely placeable for 90% of
uses, with a 90 degree rotation to take the usual y-up default and
turn it to be z-up (which is the orientation that drawstuff uses)

You can find both my patch and test_heightfield at my quickly knocked
up page here:


I hope this can be integrated into SVN because in my opinion it's a
usable enough to benefit a great number of people.

If anyone has any questions, as i've probably missed out something in
this mail, then fire away!
