In order to enter the world you will first need to download and install the Pand3D game engine. If you already have the game engine installed, you need to install Version 1.5.4. Earlier version had problems with rendering and converting Direct X models.

ALternatively, download the source code if you are running a Mac or running Unix/Linux and there is not have an installer for your platform above:

Panda3D Complete Source Code
panda3d-1.5.4.zip (63 M)
panda3d-1.5.4.tar.gz (58 M)

Installing Panda3D on Mac takes a bit of work. See this guide. (Cannot verify the effectiveness at this time, though downloading the 1.5.4 version should eliminate the need for patches mentioned in the guide.)

After installing Panda3D, download and unzip the following file. It doesn't matter where on your filesystem, just somewhere easy to remember:

Sigilis Version 0.1 Alpha
sigilis_v_.1.zip

After unzipping the file, edit /path to folder/sigilis_v_.1/config/User.prc. In this file you will want to replace the words: yourusername and yourpassword with the username and password you chose when you joined.

Sigilis Generics Pack 1
generics.1.zip

This contains a bunch of models and artwork used near the center of the world. Save download time in game by downloading this zip file and the unzipping it in the /path to folder/sigilis_v_.1/generics folder. You'll be glad you did!

Running the Sigilis Program

At the command line, navigate to the unzipped folder and run:

ppython main.py (for windows) 
python main.py (for everything else)

 

At this stage there is not much content in the world. Within the next few days we will be adding pages onto this website for you to choose a home sector and upload models and textures. The in-world editing and uploading of models is still under development.
