Here is an older 3D project I worked on back in 2011. Due to budget limitations, we had to keep the model pretty simple to cut down on billable hours. The client needed a number of different configurations of a golf course in various environments. The renders were then edited and imported into Flash so that users could dynamically change the layout of the course to suit their liking.
The application originally had the flag flapping in the wind using PaperVision3D. The water was also shimmering using Perlin noise displacement filter. These nice details were ultimately removed to optimize performance.
