Requirements#

Remote Control is a web app which requires Node.js to run.

  • Download and install latest LTS Node.js version here.

Then you'll need to install dependencies. Go to SkyReal\SkyReal\Content\Scripts, open CMD in this directory and install the express module:

  • npm install express

Finally you must allow Remote Control in the SkyReal settings.

Still in the SkyReal\SkyReal\Content\Scripts directory, open CMD and start the server:

Note that SkyReal must be started in collaborative mode.

The left panel lists all the available commands.

Some commands need a selection. They will take into account your selection in the world outliner.
