Daniel Muirhead: Cupar town centre, road layout in Blender, GIMP, Unreal Engine 4
ContinuanceTechne: This video shows the player driving around some streets within Cupar.
Road layout data, including data pertaining to the roads' elevation profiles (the ascents and descents), was taken from the 1894 Ordnance Survey Town Plan of Cupar, viewed online at the website for the National Library of Scotland. The rough draft of the road layout which is presented in this video serves as a 'proof of concept' regarding the pertinence of the data which is embedded in the old OS Town Plans.
3D models were authored in Blender (version 2.71).
2D images were edited and authored in GIMP (version 2.8.10).
The game engine is the Unreal Engine 4 (version 4.4.3).
