before i post any good and bad points for this engine, i'm in contact with support about installing the software on to a different harddrive than my windows default, which it doesn't seem to support... waiting for a reply on the issue.
One notable thing is openspace3D is open source and free and in active development.
more to come as i hope to install and play with it some first.
I tried this morning, stupid captua process involves dragging a cursor across the screen, which i did for 3 attempts, but the web page reports invalid captua each time...
So once again i went through support and sent an email...
So far no reply from them period.
This mite explain why what seems to be a decent engine, is relatively unknown to the mass's ... ( so it seems to me ) ( most of the forum posts seem to be from 2015 with a few from 2016, and only a few of them recently near the end of 2016 ) ...
Turns out my registration problems were caused by a browser pluggin ( it filters out browser header info ) the idea here is your browser shares system info with any webpage you visit and its not under your control.
This is considered a security issue, that's what the plugin fix's.
This header info is also used by a number of website such as Instagram, when this plugin active, you cant "load more" profile images..
On twitter it also cause's a notice to popup saying your account may not be able to do this, something to that effect ( if i tried to follow someone it wouldn't work )..
Disabling this plugin magically fix's all these issue ( being forced to share browser header info ).
So anyway, i am registered now, so i'll post a message repeating my issue's and see if they provide any support..
So i got a reply from a developer on the install issue that seemed to work to allow installing to my N: drive with 245G of free space.
Problem is now.. the setup process has gone ahead and still used 7G worth of space on my windows C: drive anyway, and i haven't even added any content or projects of my own yet.
So i replied on their forum with this info.. waiting now if i did something wrong or if there may be another install process to avoid this.
The program runs fine, looks good, tried one included demo project so far (which was installed on my C: drive ) called alien crash, turns out to be a 3D side scroller type project, looked pretty nice if your into that type of game.
I look forward to try the other demos ( quite a few of them included too ) ( all installed into my "documents folder" on my C: drive ).. ( which doesn't seem to support being moved.. It appears this space may be a reserved partition of some sort involving "scol voy@ger" ( no spelling mistake there, the "@" is part of the name) which is a required part of the OS3D program.. i assume.
If your free space on your windows default drive is low, you may not want to install OS3D due to it's large foot print.
installed it and everything looks ok, except runing and exporting the demo project went and made 2 empty folders in my C:documents folder This damn program has this hard wired to waste C drive space, even though the portable program is installed to my N: drive.....
dl.dropbox.com/s/0my42t5i39gpdbz/car%20showroom%20demo.zip?dl=1 to try the demo unzip ( no install required) then use your mouse click & drag to adjust the view, scroll wheel to zoom, click the doors to open/close them, put your mouse near the bottom of the window to popup a control panel to adjust the car colors and sound and start / stop the rotation & rims.
When your done, if you don't want to keep the project, just delete the zip and the directory, nothing left behind.
