Laputan Blueprints

Postby RA2lover » Sun Apr 24, 2011 3:59 pm

3d physics sandbox created by the same author of Rigidchips, a panekit-inspired sandbox game, previously discussed on phunland forums, after he suddenly disappeared after finishing Rigid Chips 1.5B26.

it uses the Bullet physics engine to simulate collisions between 3d objects. while still in development, it's definitely playable, as complex models can be built.

while designing models by using blueprints is somewhat complicated, it's possible to construct complex objects rather easily with some experience.

the game, like rigidchips, simulates air lift forces, allowing creation of flying machines for instance.

its download (for windows and mac) can be accessed at the project page, by clicking here .

there's an english community of it(but mostly still using rigidchips) avaiable at http://rigidchips.forum-motion.com/

Update: V1.3 release. it features lots of bug fixes and the ability to simplify blueprint visualization by pre-assembling it by using the "fold" option.

This looks interesting... You're sure it doesn't have any viruses or anything?
I'm sure it probably doesn't, but... I'm a little paranoid about these things.

Maybe next time you should wear a tin foil hat.

Anyway, definitely gonna try this. I've played with rigidchips before, so this should be great.

Why should I wear a tin foil hat? :wtf: And where would I get one, for I think they only make aluminum now.

And I think I will take this as saying that Laputan Blueprints is not a virus. Just a bunch of bugs and glitches, which I think I can live with.

And what's rigidchips?

hm, the word "google" comes into mind...

secondly, why would RA2lover post a link to a virus?

going to download this right now!

Join the club.

I might have to try this out, it looks really interesting...

There's a club for people who are paranoid about viruses? :wtf:

And Electronicboy, you have a good point. And how does Google come into this? Now I'm really confused.

Ok wow. So there are several ways that Google comes into this. One, as I found out, is that the Laputan Blueprints website is in fact powered by Google.

This is very interesting, and also very strange. I mean, how often do you see a 3D physics simulator where you can only build in two dimensions?

You mean like 2.5-D? I.E. Street fighter IV?

no, you make a blueprint in 2D, and the program turns i into a 3d object

The only 2.5-D things I have ever heard of are (a) fractals, and (b) Weave mazes.
I have never heard of Street Fighter IV, and it's probably nothing like Laputan Blueprints.

Universal Maze Reference is here. You'll want the Maze Algorithms thing. The Silicon Fist (aka the software the Conspirators (aka the school admins) put on this computer) wouldn't let me get there.

I downloaded laputan blueprints... It seems really difficult for a beginner to make something, but maybe I've been spoiled by algodoo/phun... And for me, that helicopter and truck shown in the video lag so much that it is unusable.

The one thing I don't get is how they use one value to control another value, like on the airplane demo thing and the centipede. That and how the direction [a-b or b-a] of a single fixjoint can cause the whole assembly to rotate.

Also, hinges only have one parameter. I want speed and torque at my disposal.

What I found myself doing a lot was driving around the car or plane in the different worlds. I actually really like the handling on those things.

Maybe the video used a strategy similar to system.regularScreenshots to achieve the illusion of a supercomputer.
