GearHead 360° Panoramas:

GearHead Game Sprites v2.7.1:
Altered sprites for the SDL version of GearHead. Includes additional mecha sprites, mostly using (with permission) 3D models created by Joseph Hewitt, Mladen Pejic, Randy & Ron Perovich and Timothy Gould, as well as mockup galleries coded in HTML and JavaScript. An older version of this library, minus the mecha sprites, can be found at the POV-Ray Object Collection.

GearHead Loading Screens v2.9.2:
These are the POV-Ray source files for my GearHead loading screens. They contain lots of stuff by other people that I technically shouldn't redistribute (the sub-models are by various authors), but will break or ruin my scenes if I don't. Also, some of the scenes, such as the spinner colony, have diverged so far from Joseph Hewitt's original ideas that they really don't have much to do with GearHead any more. ;)
