Irresponsible Programming

I like to pretend I am a responsible software engineer, but...I am not. X-Plane is RC2 right now but I have just hacked in the "region system".

Put simply, the region system allows you to make collections libaries of objects (in scenery packages) to customize the look of the scenery, that only apply to a region of the world, rather than globally. This lets you make sure your custom Igloos are not used in the Bahamas.

The reason for this impulse is that we are setting the stage for non-US global scenery objects. I will try to post some docs soon and a tutorial showing how to customize X-Plane's objects.
