1. I am decent at modeling objects and environments. I am also OK at texturing and lighting. This is going to be the majority of my thesis.
  2. I have worked with fluids before, but I have not specifically tried to simulate a sandstorm. I have found tutorials and working with fluids.
  3. As mentioned above I am not great at texturing. I need to do a lot more research to make my textures look better and more believable.
