The towers and houses were lovingly handcrafted using vim (by Radim).
The trees were done with a tree algorithm. Both generated as 3D ASCII
files, then imported with v.in.ascii.

It would be cool to have a program which takes 2D polygons and an
attribute column to generate 3D boxes (approximation of houses).
