The Tabernacle Explorer 3D

Here is the first version of the special software that I have created to help with the study of The Tabernacle.


How to use:

There is no need to install anything! Just download and save to any folder of your choice, then run it. Make sure that you do not run it directly from the download window, otherwise it may not start.

The software has very humble system requirements, so it should work on most computers. If possible, please report any problems/bugs with the software in the comments on this page so that I can fix them.

The program has the following notable features:
  1. Precise and extremely detailed 3D model of the Tabernacle.
  2. Real-time shadow calculations based on the Sun position, so that you can study the Courtyard.
  3. Interactive Pillar of Smoke and Pillar of Fire that covered The Tabernacle
  4. Interactive Entrance Curtains (i.e Curtains of the Gate of the Courtyard, Entrance and Inner Curtains of the Tabernacle.) This is to showcase how they worked.
  5. Couple of other nice little things ;)
  6. Stereoscopic 3D modes, so that you can study The Tabernacle in real 3D.

Here is the demo video:

And here is the stereoscopic mode showcase:

After setup window I have an application error (Blenderplayer). (WinXP)

Aleksandr Sigalov said...

Could you be more specific? Usually, it gives a specific error message.

Also, if you can also make a screeshot of the error message, this would help even more.

Thank you.

after running a small menu window appeared, there i click START. Then the same menu appeared in fullscreen. I pressed START button AGAIN... (sometimes it happens more than twice)And then error message appeared.

Aleksandr Sigalov said...

Thanks. Unfortunately, I do not have Windows XP to test it with, so here is what I can recommend you try:

1) Try to run it again, and at the setup window (green window) set "RESOLUTION" to "640*360" and set "FULLSCREEN" option to "NO"

If it works, then you should play with the settings and see if you can run it in fullscreen or at a higher resolution.

2) If the above suggestions did not help download and install the following:

a) Latest Microsoft DirectX

b) Microsoft Visual C Redistributable package

c) Latest Python

This should help you to run the software. All of these files have been included by default, but on Windows XP it is not uncommon to see something break.

Now, if all of the above did not help, then I'm very sorry but you will not be able to run my software on your computer.

Perhaps you can try it on some other computer with a different OS such as Windows Vista or Windows 7.

Hope this helps.

All done... But it still doesnt work. Any way, thanks a lot! Let God bless you in your work!

Aleksandr Sigalov said...

Thank you and I'm very sorry to hear that it did not work for you.

But with God's help, once I release next version of my software, it will work on your computer.

Alejandro said...

I get the error:
-BPPlayer
"Error: Internal file system is corrupt"

I hope this doesnt discourage you to keep improving this software.

My computer information:
Windows 7 Home Premium
Operative 64 bits system.
Language: Spanish(Mexico)
RAM: 4.00GB
Good Procesor.

Aleksandr Sigalov said...

Thank you for your feedback.

Yes, with God's help there will be the next update very shortly ;)

And yes, it will be much improved and much more compatible, as I have realized that there are more compatibility issues with the present system i use that I have originally hoped to see.

I wish i had more time in a day to do all of this quicker ;)

Ok, I have tested Tabernacle Explorer 3D on a virgin Windows XP installation and it seems that installing Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86) helps in some cases.

Here is the link: Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86)

Dear Aleksandr,
Thank you for your great TE 3D. I am looking forward to the the next update(s) :-)

Aleksandr Sigalov said...

Thank you, Mikulas.

I'm working on it and let's hope it will be soon ;)

Hello I had download and click on it but all I get is a black window that pops up please help me out I am really interested in this explorer.

Aleksandr Sigalov said...

Have you unzipped all of it in some folder on your computer? It is also for PC only. If you did and it still does not work (it may take some time to load though), then try to install the Latest Microsoft DirectX, Microsoft Visual C Redistributable package and Latest Python. The links are on this page in comments above.

If it still does not work, then I'm very sorry but you will have to try it on a different computer. I did all I can to make it compatible with as many computers as possible, but I'm a one man operation and I hope you understand that it is very difficult for me to produce high quality software all by myself.

I hope it helps.

A Fellow Servant said...

No luck, Its cool I understand a big project like that is not easy. So I pray the Lord will continue to bless you as you continue to use the talent he gave you. :)

Aleksandr Sigalov said...

Ok, thank you. Maybe the next version which I'm working on right now will be better. Your feedback is very much appreciated.

Also, I forgot to mention, try it on a computer that is designed for gaming, preferably with NVIDIA video card. It will most likely work.

And I'm very sorry it did not work for you.
