    Running the new release, it looks like most of the bogus trails have
    dissapeared except one. Can anyone run this script and see what's happening?
    Thanks Scott

    Has there been any work on this or is it on the list for the next upgrade?

    Thanks

    The only person who knows how that part of the graphics engine works is AWOL,
    so not, no work has been done on it. He is expected to return later this year
    (we hope).

    Daggerstab, do you know if there's been any talk about fixing the bogus or
    phantom planet trails with the graphics engine?

    Thanks, Scott
