I use CE 2011 for Vue. I have modelled my first city aligned with terrain. I have exported the terrain as VOB and the city models as VOB seperately. After importing in Vue I can see terrain and city, but the city isn't aligned to the terrain. How can I import terrain and city fully aligned like in CE ? So it seems like a pain to align it manually !
Thanks in advance for your answers from a newbie mountaineer
I have deactivated this option in Vue now, but with no success. The houses are always centered at the terrains center point, BUT have CORRECT dimensions in X, Y and Z-direction. So as I have tried to move the houses manually and after time consuming moving operations they align to the terrain more or less well. I have also tried under CE Export options > Misc Options > Global Offset > Center, but also without success.
- as I remember, there's also a center option on the vue vob import dialog, does this one help ?
- do you have to move individual buildings or are all buildings in 1 vob (there's export options for this in Cityengine) ?
If you'd like for a test, if my inputs do not help you, I could issue you a Time Limited Full License with Exporter, so you can test other formats such as obj which may behave better. This may then become a reason why to switch to CityEngine BASIC.
