Old tutorials - Michael Horvath - 2015-02-03

I wrote a few articles for the old ldraw.org website.

http://www.ldraw.org/Article529.html
<b>LDraw to SimCity 3000 Unlimited Tutorial:</b> A tutorial describing how to import LDraw models into <i>SimCity 3000 Unlimited</i>.
http://www.ldraw.org/Article528.html
<b>Polarized Glasses Tutorial:</b> A tutorial describing how to render LDraw models (and other POV-Ray scenes) so that they can be viewed in 3D using <a target="_blank" href="http://www.chromatek.com/">Chromatek</a> polarized glasses.
http://www.ldraw.org/Article545.html
<b>Cleaning LDraw Models for Export:</b> A tutorial describing why it is hard to clean LDraw models for export to other formats and applications.


Does anyone have backups so I can rewrite them for the wiki? Thanks.

Yes. I do but it'll take a little bit for me to dig them up since they're stored in a database backup.


Re: Old tutorials - Michael Horvath - 2015-02-03

There should be images/illustrations as well as the text.


Re: Old tutorials - Orion Pobursky - 2015-02-03

Those are probably still on the server since I just copied everything from our old image gallery. Even if they aren't there's a pretty good chance that they're on my local machine somewhere. I hardly ever delete anything that's ldraw.org website related.

Well, if Orion doesn't find them, you can always salvage what you need from the wayback machine.

That works too


Re: Old tutorials - Michael Horvath - 2015-02-04

Should I re-upload the images to the wiki, or just link to the existing image gallery?

Also, I just requested an account on the wiki. Hopefully I will get approved soon.


Re: Old tutorials - Orion Pobursky - 2015-02-04

The wiki and the main site are on different physical servers so I'd upload them to the wiki. Your account has been approved as well.


Re: Old tutorials - Michael Horvath - 2015-02-04

OK thanks.


Re: Old tutorials - Michael Horvath - 2015-02-04

I uploaded some images, but they don't appear in the article. Not sure what is going on. For example:
