How to ride elevators and explore building models with Skyscraper – free building simulator
Installation was pretty much uneventful, and even though you’d expect this skyscraper simulator to be a bit of a bigger download, considering that it has decent graphics, it’s only around 50MB in size.
Before you start the simulation, you can setup various different simulation options. On the image above we have the elevator editor, this is only part of the interface, and as you can see it’s riddled with various different options. When you’re ready tweaking everything, start the simulation and you can start exploring the selected building model.
Most important thing that you need to know when it comes to walking around the building is that left mouse click on elevator buttons can either call it up or down, select the floor that you want to go to and so on. Elevator that you see above has the top of it transparent, some models have the entire elevators and building walls invisible so you can see how it would look like to experience a see through building.
Skyscraper is a very enjoyable elevator simulator, not very demanding when it comes to hardware, which means that you can use it even on older computers. You can even create your own building models, so if you are a skyscraper fan, give Skyscraper a try. Free download.
