[ros-users] re-purposing rviz for flight sim

Hi all-

Has anybody tried using rviz as a quick-and-dirty visualization tool for
non-robot stuff? I'm thinking of using it for a very simple joystick driven
"flight sim." I'd like to be able to show some sort of ground, and a skybox
with a cloud texture pasted on it.

Are there good examples somewhere of loading in environmental objects, such
as a skybox, including textures?
