Amlwch Project

Well after much thought and a few facebook post on the subject recently, I have finally decided to reveal a work in progress. I started it in November, its only about 12 years after my initial thoughts on the idea, but its finally underway. Its basically a realtime environment based on Amlwch as it used to be in the past, using photos freely available as reference. From the outset I knew it would be a large and complex undertaking, and know doubt contain many errors as far as layout and detail is concerned. I am trying to contain the model within the years between 1930 and 1960. I realise that there were probably many changes within that time frame, but nowhere near as many, post 1960. I will hopefully get some help from some of the older generation through memory. The model is being built in 3d studio max using 5m terrain and aerial photography to initially place the model and then imported into Unity. It will eventually be available on the web and mobile platforms.

I must stress that this is a work in progress and will be updated as and when I can. Its not financed by anyone but me, its done purely for the love of it, I must be mad! If I can use it to advertise what my company does, www.vizworx.co.uk, then that will do for me. If anyone can help with reference, you can contact me via the contact page on this site, I dont allow comments as the spam can cause to much of a headache. So I hope you enjoy what I am trying to create, there is still a long way to go, eventually you will be able to walk from Lastra Farm to the Port with a few side streets just to add a bit for the explorers amongst you.

You will need a fairly decent computer with a graphics card and the unity plugin installed(it should ask if you want to install this automatically, just follow on-screen instructions). to controll the camera use the mouse to look and the arrow keys for forward, backward and side to side, feel free to post the link wherever you please, a reference to me would be nice though! 🙂 It will take a minute or so to download so be patient.
