VastPark in the Press

A few little news articles have started to appear online mentioning VastPark, here’s a list of a few that I know of:

VastPark Release 0.83…released!

Update 20/04/2007: Another build, 0.83.1 is now online that adds some minor new features and fixes some annoying bugs from the 0.83 release.

The “best release thus far” of VastPark has been released online at the official VastPark download page. A number of improvements appear in this version, most notably in the scripting department.

New plugin and script functionality:

wiki link

Allows input to be mapped from the keyboard when activated and a script attached to that mapping. One great example of this is in the recently released Rumpus Room by ashepherd and The Pianist by yours truly

wiki link

Allows sounds to be preloaded from a web resource and referenced within a site. Used extensively in the Rumpus Room site and The Pianist

New Scripting object:

Scene object
wiki link

The heart of all VastPark operations. Contains functionality to Show, Hide, FadeIn, FadeOut the site, store and retrieve cookies for the site, GenerateBox, GenerateSphere, GenerateCylinder, GenerateCone entities for addition to the scene as required, as well as a host of other properties such as the User and UI objects.

Useful code:


e = Scene.GenerateBox(vDim, vPos)
e.Visible = false

Scene.User.Position = Vector(10,10,10)
Scene.User.Rotation = Vector(90,0,0)

Deprecated Functionality:
