Desert Village

When TerraSim Inc. brought out their TerraTools Exporter for VBS2, it was obviously important that VizMAP, as the regional distributor, hit the ground running able to use and demonstrate it. We set about exporting a variety of our existing 3D databases previously created with TerraTools into the VBS2 format, then running around them in VBS2 shooting stuff and blowing stuff up!

The TerraTools TechNote produced for the VBS2 Exporter comes with the raw data (DEM, textures, models, GIS landuse, creeks and roads, etc.) enabling the creation from scratch of "A Desert Village" which, if you follow the instructions, ends up with an exported .pbo file, packed and loaded directly into VBS2. Obviously, you need current licenses for both TerraTools and VBS2 to be able to do this. If you have a TerraTools license and want to obtain the VBS2 Export plugin, contact me here. If you are in the hunt for VBS2, go to their website here.

These screenshots are of the TerraTools exported Desert Village as seen from within the VBS2 run-time environment.
