MAC 218 Android Build

One of our projects is to have a complete model of the Moss Arts Center, both for Mirror Worlds and as part of the Assets we can share with ICAT affiliates.

A recent alum, Lucas Freeman, was assigned to work with me for independent study in his last semester at VT.  I had him model room 218 in the MAC, load the model in Unity and light it appropriately.

I then built a little demo of that for Android.  You can download it here:

To install, you will need to go your phone’s Settings menu, then go to Security, then enable Unknown Sources.  This allows your phone to install an app from a source other than the Play Store.  You can turn this back off as soon as you’re done installing this app.

In the near future, I will get this demo also built for iOS, and then published to both the Play Store and the Apple Store.
