comment Creating Top-Down Race Track From A List Of 2D Points
If you're generating your textured road as a rectangle, then you're most of the way there. Your curve needs to be made up of trapezoid segments - the more you use, the smoother the curve effect will be.

comment Finding cubes in frustum
No, I get what happens with AABBoxes - however the solutions are tailored to finding objects that exist in floating point space, and work along the lines of "Is this object in this space" - rather than the inverse "Find all objects in this space" I didn't propose to do the "which-side" at all, rather I was thinking something similar to en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bresenham's_line_algorithm start with the near plane, generate a unit surface, and then move along until I hit the far plane. Intuitively to me it made more sense to work with unitcubes if I could.

comment Finding cubes in frustum
My understanding is that a frustum was finite - a chopped pyramid. That is how I have a bounding box. Yes, it's a voxel terrain, I've chunked up the terrain into blocks (16^3) - and am looking for the best method to add blocks to the generation, and rendering queue. I can't conceptually grasp how you'd use octrees in infinite scenarios.
