Procedurally Generated Grass Normandie 1

Following the road map provided last update, Microsoft has released the current schedule for the Tech Alpha Timeline.

Microsoft also released an image with procedurally generated grass in a field. The caption reads, “The grass is always greener… especially when its procedurally generated” hinting at volumetric grass being stock to all parts of the sim.
