Yeah, that does look cool. Our Geoscape is set up to be a 2d image though, unfortunately, so this wouldn't be much help to us even if we did hire him :)

next project perhaps

The 4 min to 5min40 show the tracing of greatcircle path on the 2D map.
That I suggest to be implemented along with the 1/cos(latitude) enlargement of radar zone.
And the x (longitude) speed bonus of 1/cos(latitude).

To correctly simulate that with are seeing a 2D representation of a 3D sphere.

Ps: great circle path is the shortest path between two point on a sphere.
