There are two different ways of experiencing the recreated Reich Chancellery usen the game engine.
Explorer-Tour - explore on your own
This option is available for a single person or a small group if they are willing to share the controls with each other during the tour (up to 6 individuals). The viewer will be able to control with their own hands the tour as they virtual-walk through this 3D-model display. You can book the tour with a live commentary by Christoph Neubauer, which will include help and directions, for a full experience where no important details of the building are missed. The “Explorer-Tour” is recommended for historians, architects or other professionals interested in presenting the building to their own audience. In this case the one who booked the tour is using the 3d-model to illustrate his own historical findings or visions. It might also help historians clarifying specific questions of interest by being able to go back in time and revisit the location where so many important historic events took place.
The lectured tour is suitable for a bigger audience. Christoph Neubauer is walking you through the 3d-model of the Chancellery and comments on each scene as you are guided through each section of the building. If one prefers, depending on the size of each group, the audience can ask questions and are also able to provide direct feedback and suggestions to the tour guide on their experience. During this tour, it will be possible to go back to specific rooms or places, to have a closer look at details or to answer and clarify questions the audience might have. If the group is larger, then questions and feedback will not be possible until after the tour, maybe during the last half an hour. This tour can also be booked by historians who can then present it to large audience.
A new tool for universities
It is possible for historians or other lecturers to use the 3D-model by Christoph Neubauer to illustrate their scientific findings to their specific audiences. Therefore, it could be used by University lecturers as a research or teaching tool. The 3D-model can be used either as a tool to simply illustrate a lecture. But it can also serve as a tool during a scientific work in progress because it has been created by Christoph Neubauer with science in mind. This 3D-model, because of its historical accuracy, can be used to confirm or refute eyewitness’s statements we find published in many books the past eighty years describing events that took place inside the Reich Chancellery. The 3d-model gives scientists a new tool in their hands to work together on various topics regarding history, art, architecture and even engineering to clarify facts or investigate a historic site.
