Mystara in 3 Dimensionsby David Tauriainen
Some of you might remember this older 3D version of Mystara from 2004-ish. Unfortunately, VRML is a fairly dead language now, and plugins don't even work anymore if you can even find them.
But, there is a new 3D method for web browsers with the advent of HTML5 which doesn't require plugins. I've been converting the old files to the new method over the last couple weeks. Still have a few bugs to work out, but it's ready for public viewing at least. I changed the texture images to be Thorf's two-color globe maps since they are quite detailed in land shape.
Currently, this only works in Firefox 4+, Chrome, and maybe Safari. Firefox and Safari need to have their webgl enabled. Chrome is enabled by default. For Firefox, type "about:config" in the URL bar, heed the warning, then search for webgl.force-enabled, and set it to true. Don't even need to restart the browser. For Safari, select Preferences. The Advanced tab, check the Show Develop menu in menu bar checkbox. Open the Develop menu in the menu bar and select "Enable WebGL".
