BASIC MARITIME ROUTES MADE WITH BLENDER
First just the usual terms,
Download and run any of the routes at you own risk as regards possible
computer problems such as computer lockups or loss of data, etc. Also
perhaps run a scan for any possible viruses or malware. All details,
dates and content may be approximate or guesswork.
To run these routes if downloading them you will need to download
Blender. You do not need to know how to use Blender. It has to be
version 2.79b or perhaps versions before this version will work. With version 2.8
Blender has the game engine section removed as they are working on
updating Blender. Also an updated game engine UPBGE is being worked on and
hopefully might be included back into 'Blender' . There is no problem
though as Blender has the previous versions available for download. Link on index page. Then we will see later what
develops as regarding a revised Blender Game Engine.
After downloading the zip file drag or remove the route folder from the zip folder.
Inside there are 3 items. A blend file which is the routes, textures folder, readme.
Double click the Blend file with the mouse or open.
Either with the mouse pointer over the window press keyboard key P.
or click tab...game/open game engine.
There is a roaming camera in all the rouets operated by keyboard home/end and arrow keys.
Drivable boats use the keyboard keys wasd, tfgh, ijkl.
If any animations are inlcuded they use keys 1 to 9.
To leave the route use keyboard 'Esc'.
I will be returning to making 50km approx. size routes. Initially these
will be the BASIC routes and texture, sea made, basic texture and
single, drivable floating sailing-flat. (barge with sail). Routes will start from the Isle
of Man then over to the Solway Firth.
