Development log - Unigine Developer UNIGINE 2.6.1: Improved Multi-Channel Rendering, Runtime Grass Modification, Distributed Terrain Generation, Stabilization Fri, 22 Dec 2017 00:00:00 +0700 Key Changes
  • Better configurator for nonlinear image warping and edge blending.
  • More robust multi-channel rendering with remote projection configuration.
  • Improved CIGI protocol support.
  • Improved generation of grass and clutters, increased performance, runtime modification.
  • Added distributed terrain generation for Landscape tool.
  • Improved UnigineEditor 2.
  • Overall engine improvements and bugfixes.
  • More C++ samples.

This is mainly a maintenance release, consisting mostly of fixes and improvements, however, it introduces some new features.

These improvements were showcased in the new 3-channel firefighting flight simulator demonstrated at I/ITSEC 2017 in Orlando, USA:

UNIGINE 2.6: Editor2, Improved Multi-Channel Rendering, Procedural Landscape Generation, VR Template Fri, 20 Oct 2017 00:00:00 +0700 Key Changes
  • Editor 2 (re-written from scratch): faster, better, easier to use
  • Assets system
  • Improved multi-channel rendering: better sync, C++ API, more features
  • Improved CIGI protocol support
  • Powerful procedural generation in Landscape Tool: data refinement, tags, roads
  • Improved TerrainGlobal
  • Materials system refactoring: clean API, easier hierarchy management
  • Improved file system
  • VR template project

This release could be called “old systems done right”. We gathered feedback from users and decided to improve important stuff before moving to adding more on top. It took months (and even years in the case of Editor 2) of hard work, but we believe it worths the effort.
