Many years ago there was a RISC OS based program called Designer Castles which allowed the design of Model Castles using a CAD style interface.

I'd be very interested in tracing the authors of this ground-breaking program, for three reasons.

i) To ensure there are appropriate preservation copies still in existence.

ii) To determine what the current status of any ports of the software (if any.)

iii) To figure out what changes would be needed to make the program compatible with modern RISC OS systems such as RO5 on the PI.

Are you sure this wasn't a BBC micro product? I recall it, but I forget the details, as I suspect I never actually used it (despite finding it very interesting).

There was a BBC Micro version AND a RISC OS one.
