Virtual Springburn Project
NEW MODELLING ENVIRONMENT
I've switched to using Unity, it has much more flexibility.
Instead of plunging right in, I've mocked up a Glasgow scene quickly, just to see
if people can use it. If all is well, I'll start modelling real streets and buildings.
2. First time Unity needs to load (quicker on later visits)
3. Use the cursor keys
4. Let me know if you have any problems.
OLD MODEL BELOW
hoping to build up the collection as time goes on.
It's modelled using the Lite-C A7 enviroment modelling system, and this
will allow us to add people, cars buses etc over time. It will only run on
PCs, not Macs.
Version 2.0 - Springburn Halls
If you want to download it to give it a try on your own machine, the file is
1. Right click springburn.exe link and select SAVE TARGET AS
2. Save the file on your desktop, or somewhere handy
3. When it's done. double click the file
4. It'll ask you if you want to extract it in the VIRTUAL-SPRINGBURN folder
5. Click the Unzip Button
6. When it's done, exit the unzip app
7. open the VIRTUAL-SPRINGBURN folder
8. open the folder inside called springburn.cd
9. run springburn.exe by double clicking on it
When it's running:
Press Alt + enter to make the app full screen
Press the 0 key (zero key) to activate the controls
- You can use your mouse to look around
- You can use your Cursor keys to move around
At the moment, I haven't put any physics engine on it, which means
you can pass through walls, and fly in the air. Later I'll make it so
that it keeps you on the ground!
Enjoy, and message me if you have any questions or problems with it.

My laptop crashed a few weeks ago, so I had to throw away all the POV stuff I'd already done on the virtual model of Springburn. This made me look around for a new modelling package, and I found a fantastic modelling environment and engine which I could use to make a Virtual Springburn.
So the last few days I've been learning how to use it, and the last couploe of days I've been designing the fire station in the modelling CAD package. I'm quite pleased with it, although I think I've made the windows too big - I can fix that in the next release.
The fire station is a one-off building (as will be several notable buildings) but I'm hoping once I have a couple of tenements modelled, I can just re-use them over and over again, and quickly get some streets up and running.
Have fun, let me know if you have problems running it.

Just started doing my family tree,and found that "we" haled from Springburn before travelling to Huddersfield back in mid 1800s.
The family name is Weir (mothers maiden name) and I stumbled across Molly Weir (and Tom) in my internet searching, Same name ,same place,same time, I feel she (they ) may be a relative,perhaps the fathers are were cousins.I cannot find any information regarding her father aprt from he was killed in the First World War,and the children were brought up by mother and grandmother,no mention of the names of their other two siblings.Can anybody help.
I would be most garteful.
Pamela Swift :-)
