Hey guys,

I wanted to do this for a long time now but never had the time to dig into it. Convert one of my 3D rendering into an online 3D version that you can navigate through. It's quite a task to convert it, especially with a packed setup like here with GWT. But finally I managed to get it to work, and I love it. Hope you do as well.

If you want the see the other ones too - the forum links are below.

There are 4 options for you. You can either watch the scene online in your browser or you can download the HTML file and watch in on your PC locally. If you watch the full resolution version online, it takes quite a while to load. Please be patient - it's almost 100MB in size. But as I said, you can download the smaller ZIP file, extract the HTML from within it and watch it on your PC by double-clicking the HTML file on your hard disk.

OK ... here are the 4 options ...

Full resolution online (be patient while it loads):
http://www.argfx.at/upload/boardgames/B4W/GWT_B4W_GameScene_...

Full resolution to download as ZIP file:
http://www.argfx.at/upload/boardgames/B4W/GWT_B4W_GameScene_...

Low resolution online (still 35MB to load, but faster):
http://www.argfx.at/upload/boardgames/B4W/GWT_B4W_GameScene_...

Low resolution to download as ZIP file:
http://www.argfx.at/upload/boardgames/B4W/GWT_B4W_GameScene_...


If you want to embed the scene into your blog or website (I recommend low resolution), you can do it by using an iframe. Check out the first line of code here ... https://www.blend4web.com/en/community/article/59/


Navigation is simple:
LEFT MOUSE BUTTON -> Rotate
MIDDLE OR RIGHT MOUSE BUTTON -> Pan
MOUSEWHEEL -> Zoom in/out
By clicking on the gear symbol in the lower right corner you can access a few options like quality change, stereoscopic view etc.

Let me know if it works for you and if you like the way that it looks. Maybe I will do the same for other 3D renderings of upcoming games too.


Here are the other games that you can watch in 3D:

The Oracle of Delphi (Stefan Feld, Hall Games/Pegasus) - https://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/1624898/examine-game-sc...
Touria (The Brands/Michael Rieneck , Huch & Friends) - https://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/1625305/examine-game-sc...


Cheers,
Andreas

Well,

theoretically game programming can be done do, as well as animation. But for now, I can't go that far. There's just so much other things to do

I'll certainly keep creating them for the games that I also illustrated.

These are massive web contents (100MB and 35MB). If you have problems with the online versions, choose one of the ZIP-files and check it out locally on your PC.

Have fun,
Andreas

Will There be a TableTop version as a DLC that can be purchased? The 3D model looks really nice. Scythe setup a really cool virtual board in TableTop.
