Question

Hi, Francesco.
At first, I'd like to thank you for BRAD! It is a very nice software, exactly what I was looking for.
I'd like to know how to include a localization at SIMULATION menu. I 'm living in Brasilia/Brasil and there is no South America city. Could you help me?
Thanks in advance
Regards

Answer

Hi Evangelos!
There is no interface at the moment to add locations, but you can easily add a new site by editing the locations.dat file inside .blender/scripts/brad/radiance/loc.
You will need to enter the location name, latitude (positive for North of equator), longitude (positive for West of Greenwich meridian) and time zone (number of hours, again positive for West of Greenwich meridian).
The next time you will start blender and b/rad, you'll find your newly added location in the list.
