WASD controls in Rhino?

unhandled

#21

The plugin has both walk and fly modes implemented (toggle with Tab), and ground collisions in both modes. For certain models flying is definitely more helpful than walking.


#22

Sounds awesome @Jarek ! Can’t wait to give it a shot. I will have to keep checking back then until you announce your release. Very strong idea with the tab toggle btw.

Hi All,

Here is a screen recording preview of how the WASD walkthrough plugin currently works in Rhino viewport ( in one of my random “Sandbox” files ).
Still needs some more work before the first official release, but I thought I’d share:


Game Like Walkthrough
Set DynamicDisplay on Viewport

ooooooh nice! Looking forward to that plugin!

Hi @Jarek
How is this smooth looking plugin of yours coming along?
Is there any way I could get my hands on it? (prepurchase etc?)
I gave up my project as GetKeyDown never got incorporated in Python, and learning a new language is too complicated for my other needs :slight_smile:

Cheers!

I am just now seeing this video and VERY EXCITED, although I have a feeling I will be compulively hitting space to jump over and over.


#27

Hi Jørgen, It is ‘almost ready’, just like Rhino 6 ; ) I will PM you with more info since we discussed our personal WASD projects before…


#28

Hi Aaron, space is used for other things in my keyboard map since jump is not usually critical in exploring your CAD designs… but for compulsive jumpers/doom/quake/call of duty players, the “C” key is reserved and working :wink:

Will your WASD plug-in have configurable keys? The WASD layout on my keyboard wouldn’t really work, I’d rather have HSLN (: (and for jumping M)

#30

The first release will not have configurable keys… but I realize this may be important to add, so if there is interest I will look into making it work. So are you left-handed or… :wink: Just curious why WASD is not working for you. Or you have some special keyboard layout for coding gurus?


(Nathan 'jesterKing' Letwory) #31

Yes. Well, not necessarily coding guru, but my layout is

Essentially a Dvorak-type layout, but optimised for the Finnish language.

#32

I see… excuse my ignorance. I can definitely see HSNL + M jump making sense here!
Or - possibly - a toggle between QWERTY-Dvorak layouts…this may be easier to implement.


#33

And all those AZERTY guys out there?


#34

thanks Wim. Clearly key customizations are needed. Need to burst my qwerty bubble.


#35

damn languages!


#36

Don’t worry about non qwerty people. They probably all voted for Trump.
