you can actually get into the Museum of USSR, explore the space and see some
exhibition going on. This is a VRML model, a heavy one - I designed it in
3D MAX and everything is modeled, not just textured, so there is huge amount
of faces. After exporting file was processed with VRMLPad
to fix animation problems left by 3D MAX. My husband had to make for me some
software to optimize 3D MAX VRML output and still rendering speed on my PC
(Athlon 700MHz/ 256MB/ GeForce256 graphics) falls below 10 fps on some scenes.
can use the help of "Guides" - I created little persons with the
anchors on them, if you jump on one you'll begin to see from his point of
view. From a standing person you can walk away and explore on yor own. If
you'll sit on a helicopter it'll take you to a ride over the site. There is
also a list of cameras. I tried several VRML viewers and liked most CORTONA
(the only problem I had with it is that sometimes you could fall down through
this page you can just go to the virtual museum online (installing VRML plugin
first if you don't have one already) or dowload the whole world with all the
resource files (images and sounds), unzip it and run later.
fixed it in version 3.0!
dowload the Museum of USSR VRML with all the resource files (images and sounds)
Go to the Museum of USSR VRML 1.57MB (+ 3.31 MB resources) = 4.88 MB
