What's New in Terrain Tools Version 1.5

MetaVR Terrain Tools for Esri® ArcGIS® version 1.5 contains the following new features and enhancements:

  • New polygon feature type for projecting a 2D runway model and
    cutting into the terrain.
  • New polygon feature type for incorporating an external 3D terrain model by cutting out an area of terrain and replacing it with the model geometry during terrain compilation. With this seamless integration, an external terrain model is treated like native terrain for both rendering and mission functions.
  • Support for compiling large areas of instanced point features, such as trees, into the terrain.

MetaVR Terrain Tools' previous release, version 1.4, contained the following new features and enhancements:

  • Support for compiling terrain in a native 64-bit executable.
  • Support for building underwater geometry (bathymetry) to increase the terrain fidelity of the ocean floor for use in littoral scenarios with VRSG's 3D ocean sea states.
  • Forest tool, which provides a quick and efficient way to distribute thousands of randomized and scaled tree points within a polygon.
  • Blending of adjacent microtexture features.
  • Faster feature processing, including large complex linear networks.
  • Smooth transition between cut-in features and the terrain.
  • New sample source data (of Baltimore, MD) for the sample project used in the tutorial in the MetaVR Terrain Tools for Esri ArcGIS User's Guide.
