TerraSim Releases TerraTools 5.6 and VBS Blue Source Plug-in

TerraSim announced today the release of TerraTools 5.6, the latest version of its industry-leading virtual terrain generation software. TerraTools 5.6 introduces a new plug-in for generating custom high-resolution VBS Blue IG insets to enhance the default global dataset. The new exporter can be easily added to an existing TerraTools project or use the OmniWizard to quickly start a new project with correlated terrain exports to VBS Blue IG and any other supported runtime.

TerraTools 5.6 is available to all customers currently under active maintenance and support contracts. Current users can download the software installer on our support site.

For evaluation and sales inquiries regarding TerraTools 5.6 or the new VBS Blue Source plug-in, email us at sales@terrasim.com

TerraTools 5.6 Highlights

 

TerraTools Core

  • Improved handling of unknown pixel values in rasters

TerraTools VBS Blue IG Source Plug-in

  • Generate high-resolution insets for VBS Blue IG that override the global terrain database for a specified region, giving users complete control over DEM, satellite imagery, models, surface mask, and roads layers
  • OmniWizard updated for quick-start of new projects that correlate between VBS3 and VBS Blue IG

VBS Export Plug-in

  • Support for export to VBS3 v18.1
  • Support for predefined AI road networks which replaces the old object-based road network system used for AI vehicle pathfinding
  • For VBS Control, new AI road network technology can be used to define additional attributes for lanes, one-way roads and crosswalks
  • Fix in TerraTools Core for unknown pixel values in rasters which solves the “128 pixel value” error for VBS surface masks

Steel Beasts Pro Export Plug-in

Support for export to Steel Beasts Pro 3.323
