When exporting to a Scene Layer Package in CE what coordinate system should I be using.  I've been working in our State Plane but when the scene environment is set to global scene the data is way off and when it's set to local scene you can't use the ESRI basemaps.

Pretty sure it's Web Mercator / EPSG 3857.

Hello Scott Aulen,

Due to the big distortions of the Web Mercator / EPSG 3857 projection it is not recommended for working with CityEngine. If possible, use the UTM coordinate system of your area. For the upcoming CityEngine release the support for State Planes has been improved. 

For ESRI basemap support in the web viewer, you should set 'Create a global scene' on export. The scene layer content then gets automatically re-projected to Web Mercator.

Sounds good.

I'm also having difficulty finding instructions for using my own elevation data.  Can this be done through AGOL or just ArcServer?  Can you point me to the documentation for this?

What's the ETA on the next CityEngine release?

Can I share my own terrain models in scenes?

Yes. You can share custom terrains using ArcGIS 10.3 for Desktop and later to create a cached elevation image service. You can add these services as elevation layers in your scene.

CityEngine 2016.1 has just been released:
