Rapid 3D Application Development Tools
Visual3D Game Engine provides a 3D simulation and game
design toolset that integrates a wide range of
useful visual design tools that automate core
development tasks into a single software tool.
Drag & Drop Scene Scenario Builder
Visual3D Game Engine Scenario builder provides an easy
to use set of visual tools for scenario building.
- Drag and Drop Design: Script scenarios and
free-form exercises with an intuitive drag and drop
- Asset Management: Easily upload, store, and
manage your scenario components through a convenient
- Script your Scenario's Interactivity Visually: Use
Visual3D Game Engine's diagram based visual scripting system to
develop AI, event sequences, and other interactivity.
- Distribute Authoring Capabilities to End Users: Provide
Visual3D Game Engine's visual tools to the customers of your application
(trainers, war-fighters, and more) in order to allow them to
customize it to their needs.
Terrain Editor for Real-time World Building
The Visual3D Game Engine Earth Builder toolset provides visual
tools for building large custom or real-world terrain
environments with Google Earth style navigation.
- Move from Outerspace to Ground Level: Earth
Builder provides a unique 3D global world interface
with Google Earth style navigation that allows you to
zoom from space down to ground level to build and view
terrain environments anywhere on the globe.
- Customize Your Terrain: Earth Builder's visual
terrain creation tools enable you to rapidly build custom
land-cover features such as road and river networks,
vegetation, urban areas, and more.
- Load and Apply GIS Data: Load GIS Data and
visualize it on your world.
- Urban Area and Building Generation: Automatically
create buildings from satellite imagery of urban areas.

Visual User Interface Editor
Develop 2D interfaces such as tactical displays, HUDS, and custom
user controls with Visual3D Game Engine's User Interface Editor.
- Create Custom Controls: Use Visual3D Game Engine's Visual
User Interface Builder to visually construct and script
interactive controls (buttons, instruments, etc.) and
integrate them into your user interface.
- Create 2D Maps for Tactical and Navigation Interfaces: Upload
2D map data and create interactive tactical and navigational map
interfaces from them. Customize your interface with icon sets,
GIS and terrain data, custom controls and more.
- Create Multiple Viewports: Create multiple windows to
host your 2D and 3D interfaces and customize how you choose to
Asset Management System
Art and Asset management is one of the most important and time
consuming aspects of 3D application design, often consuming a
large percentage of any team's time. Visual3D Game Engine greatly reduces
the time and energy required in asset management by providing an easy
content pipeline and asset management library that allows you to
easily import, organize, and touch up your application's assets.
- Easily import assets: Import 3D models, scripts,
terrain data, textures, shaders, particle systems and more
in a few simple steps
- Create libraries of content: Create libraries
of custom and built-in assets for usage in the development
of your application at anytime.
- Touch-up 3D models with the Visual3D Game Engine Material
Editor: Use the Visual3D Game Engine Material Editor to customize
the material effects, skins, shaders, and parameters applied
to your 3D models and particle systems.
Visual3D Game Engine Scripting and Application Development API
In addition to it's suite of visual tools, Visual3D Game Engine also
enables you to take advantage of it's Application Development
API. The Application Development API enables you to move
beyond simple applications and build high fidelity interactive
games and simulations.
- Build Powerful Applications with the Visual3D Game Engine
Engine API: Through it's API, Visual3D Game Engine gives developers
extensive control over their application by providing full access
to all of Visual3D Game Engine's core systems. Through this, your
developers can produce advanced content and easily extend the
functionality of the Visual3D Game Engine engine or toolset to suit your
- Script in Common Programming Languages: Most tools
require you to learn a custom scripting language to use their
product. Visual3D Game Engine avoids this by being based off the .NET
framework and gives you the power to program your applications
in languages your developers are already familiar with including
C#, C++, Visual Basic, Java, Lua, and IronPython.
- Visual Studio Integration: Visual3D Game Engine is integrated
with Microsoft's Visual Studio and gives you the benefit of having
one the most widely used software development and debugging
toolsets at your disposal.
