  1. Dear Bram,
    I am currently using your code in a project ( and need to modify it so that the continents will be extruded to form some kind of continental plates. I a fighting to modify the line 79 in the file shp_three.js into this:
    var geo = shape.extrude({amount: 100, bevelEnabled: false});
    But the result is disappointing: nothing changes.
    Could you help me solve this issue?
    best regards,
