Selects all objects completely within the selection rectangle. Add a new attribute LOD to the existing attributes in the.

Obviously, we only have time in this tutorial to focus on this small and abstract design. Next, the insert operation i objectname inserts an asset into the current scope. The brick texture channel 0 will be repeated every 1. Terrain and dynamic city layouts. New variations of the buildings can be created by changing the seed value.

The source field changes from Rules to Value. The building rules in this tutorial have a small set of attributes to actually design the building, especially the overall building volume.

The left-to-right rectangular selection is usually used to select tiny objects such as single Street Graph Nodes when there are many objects occupying the same space. Based on these conditions, we plan for mixed-usage along the main street with shops on the ground floor and services on the upper floors; plus residential usage behind the buildings.


Of course, urban planning processes are typically reaching a much higher level of complexity than the simplified case described in this tutorial. Notice that in the scene, there is already a small test shape layer Footprint that we can use as a locator indicated in green in the next screenshot to place a building.

Once you have a selection, the right mouse button context menu contains entries with which you can select additional elements.

Tutorial 16: Urban planning

The following figures depict the extruded mass model first and the described decomposition into floors and tiles below. Now you’ll copy all necessary files from the downloaded Tutorial 1 project into your new project. The simple building you already modeled will be your high resolution model. In this section, you’ll add a simple level of detail LOD mechanism to your simple building.

The width and height of the scope are not affected since relative coordinates are used: The Grow Streets cityengibe box appears. If the dimensions are not set the same as the Window or Door rule, the sizes are adapted automatically—otherwise the given dimensions are used. In this part of the tutorial, we focus on the definition of the development framework. This means that on cityengihe next generation of the building, the LOD value in the rule file will be set by the value 0 in the Inspector.


Your first buildings appear. Using the operation s x,y,zthe size of the scope can be set in the Wall rule.

Your Scene Editor under the Navigator in your layout will now contain cityenginf new Streetnetwork layer, containing a network of blocks, graph segments, and shapes. Make sure the visibility of models is activated by toggling with F The appearance of the ground floor is often different from the other floors, especially for front facades.

To make the floor design slightly more interesting, you’ll split a wall element of width 1 on each side. For the sake of simplicity, we define the development framework based on the spatial context allotment, city structure, neighboring quarters etc.

The following image shows the final building model: Same rule file assigned on all visible layers. Select Objects of Same Type.

Otherwise LOD equals zerodo not load the window asset, but use a simple plane coming from the facade instead. Next, we zoom in on one building plots and further refine typology and design.

Next, the floors are further broken down into elements called tiles floor subdivisions.
