Pittsburgh, PA - TerraSim, Inc. and Calytrix Technologies are pleased to announce the release of three new database formats available for download on the Calytrix website. Produced by TerraSim’s TerraTools®, these additions include correlated runtime formats for Havok Tools, Havok Vision Engine, and MASA SWORD for “Sample Desert Village.”
These databases are available for download via registration at the Calytrix website. These samples give LVC Game users a full set of correlated terrain databases to use as a testbed for each of their runtime applications. The twelve other existing databases include VBS2, OpenFlight, Steel Beasts Pro, Open-SceneGraph, MÄK VR-Vantage and VR-Forces, JCATS, OneSAF (multiple OTF formats) and JointSAF (CTDB). The use of Havok Tools, Havok Vision Engine, and MASA SWORD as correlated terrains produced by TerraSim’s TerraTools®, was demonstrated at ITEC in May 2012. You can read more about TerraSim’s demonstrations at ITEC 2012 here. Further capability enhancements for these runtime engines as well as the new TerraTools 5 release will be presented at I/ITSEC 2012.
Please note that the TerraSim databases on Calytrix’s website, although free, do require a request access form and are subject to approval by TerraSim.
