Radical SR8 rFactor Simulation at the London International Technology Show

I have just finished re-skinning a car that is to be used in a simulator running rFactor, which is on show at the London International Technology Show.

The Radical SR8 is a lightweight, high aero performance car represented
within ISI's rFactor simulation.

www.triplewidescreen.co.uk is using the vehicle on the VRX iMotion simulator
in partnership with Scan computers at the London International Technology
Show. Most of us will never have a chance to drive a vehicle like this, let
alone at race circuits all over the world. Now you can!

My Unity Car Racing Demo

Below is my Car Racing Demo, I took my 3D Model of my Seat Ibiza and tried to Integrate it into the Unity Game engine, you can drive it around the track by using the direction keys, there are still a few errors in the demo but I will try and iron them out if I get time!

For further images of the Car please see my web site

How to embed Unity 3d files in Wix websites

I recently found out that you cannot upload .unity3d files to the wix web servers. After seeing the embedded files on other peoples wix sites I managed to find a work around so that I could view the web player on my site.

Here is what I did;
First of all you need to sign up for a 'dropbox' account which is free, this allows you to host your file and create a link to it.

Once you have your dropbox account you can copy your .unity3d file into your dropbox public folder. Once it has copied you need to right click on the file, select dropbox -> copy public link. (It may be a good idea to past this into Notepad or something for now.)

Back in wix you need to add an HTML widget to your website.
Next you need to open the .html file created by Unity, but you will need to open it in Notepad so that you can copy the code and paste it into the html widget in wix.

Your next step is to look through the code for a reference to your .Unity3d should look something like this;

unityObject.embedUnity("unityPlayer", "WebPlayer.unity3d", 620, 349);

You should then paste you link that you copied from dropbox over the WebPlayer.unity3d, make sure that the link stays within the quotes ""

After that you should be able to publish your site and then play your Unity Game!
