Simulation Version 16

Simulation Version 16 This version includes some new scenes and enhancements (sea castle, easy living, loading/queue area) but doesn’t yet include some scenes that were featured in the previous version. The reason being is that the simulation has been completely rebuilt from scratch to improve both the overall graphics quality, and the average performance on […]

Simulation Version 15

What an amazing event! EPCOT turned 30, and I was able to share my Horizons simulation with hundreds of people over the course of four days. I’ll post more about the event itself later, but I promised that I’d post the latest version as soon as I possibly could after the anniversary event, and here […]

Ultra Wide FOV for Simulation Experience: More complicated than you’d think

For those of you who are avid gamers, photographers, or 3D modelers/animators, a camera’s Field of View is nothing out of the ordinary or particularly complicated. After all, in Unity each camera has a handy-dandy “Field of View” slider that allows you to adjust that very property. So, when I set out to create an […]

Now, to create such a large projected screen, a few hurdles have to be overcome: 1) Using one projector on the entire screen is simply too low resolution – too few pixels stretched over too large of a […]
