Unigine::NodeLayer Class

Header:#include <UnigineNodes.h>

A layer node is a zero-sized node that has no visual representation and enables to save all its child nodes into a separate .node file. Layer nodes should be used to split the world into several logical parts and save each of them in a .node file so that each layer and its child nodes can be edited without affecting the source .world file.
