According to Roland "harkyman" Hess:
BlenderPeople is a suite of Python scripts for Blender that, in conjunction with a MySQL database, allow the generation of large scale crowd dynamics, including (but not limited to!) combat scenarios.
Here's what you'll need to get going:
- Blender 2.42a - BlenderPeople Build: OS X, Windows, or you can build your own with the source (zip).
- MySQL 5*
- MySQLdb 1.0
- Python 2.4*
* BlenderPeople 0.8 also works with MySQL4.1+ and Python 2.3. If you already have these installed, there is
no need to upgrade.
Roland also went above and beyond by having extensive documentation (pdf). And if you're still not convinced of what BlenderPeople can do, check out the demo video (remember to right click and save as).
