Pleasure Palace of the Royal Stewarts Revisited

Linlithgow palace was the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots and was once lived in by successive Stewart kings. The preserved monument of the Royal Palace can be visited in a picturesque park setting overlooking Linlithgow Loch.

An earlier reconstruction of Linlithgow Palace undertaken by Education Scotland and Historic Scotland is now being developed further by Open Virtual Worlds in Computer Science at St Andrews.

We have developed the landscape according to OS data, and are experimenting with interaction methods and NPC’s.

Discussions at our last meeting centred around panoramas, cultivated landscapes, phantom staircases and prescribed outfits for Mary Queen of Scot’s entourage.

Next on the agenda is a visit to Linlithgow Academy to reveal the 3D reconstruction in an educational setting.
