    Hey Redrobes,
    My latest thumbnail isn't getting scraped by the macro in the Feb Challenge. Any chance you could adjust it? Thanks
  2. How would I nominate coyotemax's new map for the next challange?

    Thanks, just doing my (very) small part to help. It's folks like you, though, that make this community what it is.

    Earlier you preformed a fix on a map I did to get rid of the 45 degree tilt caused by GIMP's cloud algorithm. I'm curious as to how you manage that.

    I was thinking of creating a hand-drawn map of a location in Thrubmorton Fens. Perhaps something that should exist in the region, but not currently in the map. I was thinking of creating a partially submerged mine along the edge of a swamp region, where a tribe of lizardfolk, or some other menacing race has created a den, or other community.

    Suggestions?

Stitching points into a model using MeshLab

by Redrobes on 02-04-2011 at 09:20 AM
Ok so we have the points, lets make a mesh - a polygon model of the building. In MeshLab clean up some of the stray points. You can do that by selecting points and deleting them. The selection icon is the one with three dots and the cursor arrow. Click that and drag out a box over some points and they turn red to show they are selected. The delete is on the far right which is the three dots and a triangle with a big X through it.

Once you have the vertices for the building without

Insight3D

by Redrobes on 12-01-2010 at 02:44 PM
So this Insight3D is a gem of an app. You can find it here:

http://insight3d.sourceforge.net/

As stated on the page "it hopes to be "Photosynth + Canoma". Or "boujou + Imagemodeler". But it's also free and opensource (GNU AGPL 3)" - ok thats me sold then... Its not quite up to the mentioned apps but its heading in the right direction and seemed very stable to me. At this point its not super user interface easy but once you have run it through a few times then its not

My blog about some extreme 3D stuff

by Redrobes on 12-01-2010 at 01:29 PM
I thought I would start a blog about some tech stuff that I have mentioned in the past on various posts but I thought it would be better if I brought it all together. I don't expect that this will be relevant to many people but I am forever surprised by the few who do post in some amazing related links to the bizarre stuff that I post sometimes and these make it all the more worthwhile. I think within these posts will be some gems and some of it will seem a little extreme now but in a few months
