In fact, didn’t Bryce start out as a photoshop plug-in?  I seem to remember it being part of Kai’s stuff before it got separated into a stand alone app.

Kai’s Power Tools for Photoshop were a great set of plug-ins (many of the features in them eventually became part of the Photoshop application but without that individual Kai intuitive and innovative control interface), but Bryce was never a Plug in, it was always a stand alone app.
Eventually when I get around to clearing up a load of stuff I’ll set up and fire up the 20 year old Mac IICX I have packed away, which if I remember correctly has one of the very early (if not the first) version of Bryce loaded on it. smile

A little birdie did tell me once that there was a very early beta (may even have been alpha) that worked on one of the early computers, before it was released for the Mac

Well all that’s really need to restore the site to it’s full glory is for the site owner/creator to fix the broken links. I mean it all looks to be his creation so it should just be a matter of reuploading the broken items and updating the links if necessay.

Argh - maintenance of web links is tedious. I may also have some dead ones. I’m always glad if they get reported.

I was at your site not too long ago (couple of weeks or so) and I didn’t notice any dead links, at least not for the content you shared. At Brycetopia the dead links was to his own content and what’s even stranger is some worked some didn’t. If the content was hosted somewhere seperate from his site one would expect all the links to be dead because maybe the host changed a domain name or something. I’m not sure what happened with Brycetopia but it’s disappointing because the missing files are important to what the site trys to share with people.

Yeah, tell me about it, The times I have regretted taking over resposibility for the list of lists of links. I am alwaysthe one gets moaned at for broken links, even if someone else made the lists.

Well whack them a good one with that club of yours and really give them a reason to moan. smile

The Kay’s Power Tools (KPT) that came with Bryce 4 do still work in 7.1. I have them copied over from Bryce 4. This landscape http://www.bryce5.com/details.php?image_id=4798 was made with them.

Oh thanks Horo, now you have me looking for my old Br4 install disc. I have KPT power tools as a standalone version which I can use in Photoshop, but forgot it also came with Br4.

Well, I see some good news about Brycetopia, while he has been away due to health issues, he is back now and he has been correcting the broken links there so everything should once again be available!

@Horo, dang now I’m going to have to go dig up my Bryce 4 disc(s) so I can track down that set of filters myself!

Thanks for the update on Brycetopia.

Edit: Just to confirm I went back and checked and indeed all the links for Brycetopia that were broken are now fixed. The only links still not working are the other items in the free section beneath the link for the Brycetopia section. Specifically one for a Facade and one for a bridge. Those aren’t needed for Brycetopia though.
