Managing Worlds

A world in UNIGINE is a scene that includes a set of different built-in objects with certain parameters. UnigineEditor provides an ability to create new worlds, load or reload existing ones and save them if any changes are made. You can also adjust various settings for the worlds you create.

Creating a New World

To create a new world via UnigineEditor:

  1. Click File -> Create New World in the main menu, or press CTRL + N.

  2. In the window, that opens, specify a name for the new world and choose the target directory within your project.

After that, two new assets will be created in the target folder:

  • newworld.world - an XML file containing rendering settings of the created world.
  • newworld.cpp - a world script.

Notice
A new world with default sun node will be created. You can keep this node or delete it at your own discretion.

Reloading a World

Adjusting World Settings
