Additions to model libraries
Over 1,200 new models (including 298 new military models) have been added to MetaVR's 3D content libraries since the release of VRSG version 5.10 in May 2015. Among the culture models are 160 new building models that were built with three damage states (slight damage, moderate damage, and destroyed) and used for the expanded Afghanistan terrain. Among the 298 new military models are several new models of U.S. Navy sea vessels. There are now over 6,300 models of all types in MetaVR's 3D model libraries. The new models, including the culture models with damage states and the new ship models, are featured in new demo scenarios that are also installed with VRSG. Damage switch states will be standard in new culture models added to MetaVR's 3D content libraries. Commercial vehicle models built within the last three years have all been upgraded to contain full interiors and articulating doors. Over 250 new animations have been added to VRSG's animation library, including 9 animations in various deceased positions. You can watch the videos of VRSG demo scenarios at http://www.metavr.com/products/vrsg/vrsgdemos.html and on Vimeo at http://www.vimeo.com/metavr/videos.
Enhancements for rendering models
MetaVR's tools for converting models and terrain from OpenFlight formats to MetaVR formats now support V13 of the OpenFlight API. 64-bit versions of these tools are now delivered with VRSG.
