1.2 Million Lines Later...

I'm a techie by trade and a numbers nerd by nature, so I'm going to post some statistics about this project.  This is mostly for my amusement, but maybe some of you will find it interesting too.

As part of the same nerdy need, I have posted a bunch of "behind the scenes" pictures of the models that make up JBII over on the Facebook page.  See that HERE.

And now, the stats (as of Aug 11, 2012)...  

The 4 main Sketchup models for JBII (outside, ride, theater, image works) consist of the following:

  • 1,242,274  lines
  • 510,694  faces (individual flat surfaces)
  • 185  components (how the models are exported in pieces)
  • 378  colors or textures

The actual numbers are a lot higher because this doesn't account for repeated (or instanced) components or any of the parts that are directly created in Unity 3D instead of Sketchup.

  • 1 year, 5 months, and 22 days of progress
But of course, I didn't work on it every day.  :-)

The actual simulation is built in a program called Unity 3D.  This project currently consists of:
  • 20,892  files (many of these are support files that you never see)
  • 1,153  folders

My research, reference and archive materials consist of an additional:

  • 3,549  files (which still don't include good blueprints of the ride scenes)
  • 873  folders (I'm a little obsessive about documentation)
The entire project is just a little under 9 GB with everything included.

Yep, I'm that kind of nerd...
