Virtualscape help.

I am trying to figure out how to make the 3d view of your map show up on the instructions. I have downloaded other peoples maps that contain the 3d picture on the first page above where is says "Author". Can someone tell me how? Thank you.

Spectre007 Woo who?
When looking at the 3d map, click Tools --> Save Picture.. This will save the 3d image as a bitmap file to whatever destination you set. Then take the picture and cut/modify any way you need to and attach it to the map building instructions in PDF format.

Good Luck

Thank you for the help. I still don't quite get how to to this little part. I don't get how to "attach it".

If you have BOTH the map view, and the 3d view open, when you go to print, the 3d image is there. If you close the 3d view, it will not be.

Wow! Now that's simple enough. Thank you both!

Okay, I'm gonna hijack keglo's thread for my own Virtualscape questions.

When I download other people's maps it's as a pdf file. Now as far as I can tell, VS creates hsc files. If I try to upload a map, do I need to convert it to a pdf first or will uploading it do that for me? If the answer is the former, what program can I use to convert the map instructions to a pdf?

tokomi is surprisingly tart
Sherman,

When you upload VirtualScape files into the gallery, they will not be converted into a .pdf format.

Srmalloy provides some great information about PDF software in this thread. This should get you started in the right direction if you would like to upload .pdf files instead of .hsc.

May you roll what you need, when you need it.

Thanks, tokomi.

I guess I should've asked if it's absolutely necessary to convert to .pdf to upload. Can I just upload the maps I've created as is? Would that mean only people who have VS could view them? If so, then I guess I'll convert them.

Please excuse my computer illiteracy. I'd like to be able to convert the files to .pdfs, I'm just worried about downloading free programs onto my computer.

If you upload HSC files, only those with VS will be able to view them.
