Title: Anim8or models for Celestia
Post by: selden on September 07, 2017, 11:57:21 am
For a long time I've been using models created using Anim8or in my Addons for Celestia (as have other people). Usually my models are rather simplistic and low-poly: I'm not into hyper-realism or adding lots of "greebles" as some people are.

A recent project used particularly simple objects. Distorted cubes became interactive maps and their buttons. It works under Windows, Linux and MacOS.

Another project used quite a few models with somewhat more sophistication to create an interactive notebook. Unfortunately, it works only under Windows.

I'm slowly adding some interactive 3D components to the Resurgence maps. (See link above.) Here's an example, providing them with a power source.

It's been slowly growing over a very long period of time. Unfortunately, some of the links to other sites are no longer valid, but vetting and updating them (either with links to their authors' new sites or to the Web Archive) can be quite laborious.
