  • fixed the PTX loader
  • When importing file type selected from file extension where possible.


Changelog 2.52 Build 30 (09/06/2020)

  • Can now switch on labels at a group level as well as globally.
  • reduced complexity of the 3D polylines to assist with visualisation of large numbers of polylines.

Changelog 2.52 Build 30 (08/06/2020)

  • Improved speed of polyline display with large polyline datasets. 
  • Waypoint groups can now be renamed
  • Multimedia Object Groups "ungroup" option added.

  • Improved algorithm for zone mapping.

Changelog 2.52 Build 23 (20/05/2020)

  • Fix to the OBJ importer

  • Improved tile model loader

Changelog 2.52 Build 21 (04/05/2020)

  • Improvement to the tiled model display to even out the load on disk reads.

Changelog 2.52 Build 20 (27/04/2020)

  • Collision detection (standard navigation mode only) and backface culling added. Collision detection prevents you for passing through an outcrop, and the backface culling is useful when working in valleys so the valley side you are behind is hidden.
  • updated the projection database for coordinate transforms.
  • Added ability to add hyperlinks into the models (for linking to a blackboard/VLE test for example).
  • Polyline groups and sub-groups can have different attributes is required.

  • Fixed bug in loading the images for projected textures.

Changelog 2.52 Build 12 (18/03/2020)
