[Proland-info] Proland usage on AMD graphics card

I ran across your library recently.  I knew about that other one, Outerra, but they don't have an API yet.  We use Vega Prime for some in-house flight simulators but it is licensed.  It gets worse when we want to use world-wide data as they charge even more for their terrain server.  I want a free solution to render the world, even if low resolution.  Our IR&D budget is not large for something like this.  I have been looking at as many solutions as I can.  osgEarth from OpenSceneGraph and even FlightGear, which some people already use.
One of your web pages states it may not work with graphics cards other than NVidia.  I can confirm I get shader errors when trying to start a demo on my PC that uses an AMD Radeon HD 7000.  Most of our ground stations use NVidia, though.  But the cards are Quadro 2000 and K2200.  We have some systems sporting K4200 but not many.

So I am guessing there still isn't a solution for non-NVidia graphics cards, right?

I have another question.  With some work can the modules be used by themselves, such as the ocean and/or atmosphere?  I imagine I need to provide rendering.
