Structure Layers

Structures in the VTP software means buildings, linear structure such as walls and fences, and instances of external 3D model files.  They are contained in Structure Layers, which can be loaded and saved to VTST files.  You can have any number of structure layers on each terrain.

Adding Structure Layers to your Terrain

To include structures from a VTST file, you can:

  1. edit the properties for your terrain.  Under the Culture tab, double-click Structure Files to choose from a list of all the VTST files that are located in BuildingData folders on your data path.
  2. Or, at runtime, you can load a Structure Layer from a VTST file, by pressing Load Layer in the Layer Dialog.
  3. Or, at runtime, you can create a new, empty Structure Layer at runtime, by pressing Create in the Layer Dialog.
