Two New TerraTools Exporters Now Available

March 26, 2010

Pittsburgh, PA - TerraSim, Inc. is pleased to announce that the TerraTools Exporter for OpenSceneGraph (OSG) and TerraTools Exporter for Steel Beasts Professional (from eSim games) are available. Release versions can now be downloaded for use by TerraSim customers with evaluation or pre-release licenses; interested TerraTools customers can request evaluation licenses for both new products. Both exporters are fully supported with complete product documentation.

These two new exporter plug-ins extend TerraTools' impressive range of capabilities to generate 3D terrain databases correlated for both visual simulation and semi-automated forces (SAF) applications of constructive simulation. In addition, they give TerraTools users the widest available choice of formats for serious gaming, mission rehearsal, and training.

As with all TerraTools-built databases, projects that are exported to OSG and Steel Beasts Pro are improved by TerraTools Core Urban Details™ processing. Roof clutter, free-standing walls, buildings with interiors, and power lines with wires can be automatically created.

The OSG exporter supports current and previous releases of the OSG baseline (2.4.2, 2.6.2, and 2.8.2) and has built-in support for database paging and texture compression. The Steel Beasts Pro exporter provides users with the ability to produce detailed geo-specific exercise terrain maps using high fidelity source data.

OpenSceneGraph and Steel Beasts Professional exports fully correlate with all other runtimes supported by TerraTools plug-ins. TerraTools supports serious gaming and visual formats with export to VBS2 and OpenFlight. Constructive simulation is supported with exporters for OneSAF OTF, JCATS, JointSAF CTDB for OTBSAF and JointSAF, GDB for MÄK VR-Forces, and more.

All TerraTools exporters are available as separately purchased plug-ins, allowing customers to mix and match components for the lowest price COTS solution for their terrain needs. Visit our plug-ins page to learn more.
