What's New in World Machine 2.2: Better, Faster, and Friendlier新2.2版本有更好、更快的速度、更友好的界面

World Machine 2.2 is an evolutionary release designed to improve the user experience and fix all known issues. Despite being "only" a minor release, WM 2.2 brings many new features to the table!

World Machine 2.2是一个进化版本旨在改善用户体验并修复所有已知的问题. 尽管“仅仅”是一个小版本, WM 2.2 带来了许多新特性!

Workview Improvements工作视图改进

You can now use routing points to organize your device networks, allowing you to reduce connection clutter and organize devices more logically. In addition, a variety of other improvements have also been made to the work view and other aspects of the program to allow for smoother workflow.

您现在可以使用路径选择指向组织你的设备,让你减少连接的混乱并更合理的组织设备,除此之外,各种各样其他的改进已经可以通过工作视图和其他程序更流畅的工作

Bug FixesBUG修复

World Machine 2.2 will be the most stable and tested version to date. Dozens of bugs large and small have been fixed since the previous version.

World Machine 2.2 将最稳定的测试版本. 自以前的版本以来,几十个大大小小的bug已经被修复.

Memory Paging虚拟内存

With the new paging system, running out of memory should be a much rarer experience. World Machine now implements its own virtual memory system to manage world information, saving to and bringing from disk as required.

新的内存分页机制可以减少内存的大量耗用. World Machine现在实现了通过自身的虚拟内存系统去管理世界信息,根据需要从磁盘存取.

Sessions 会话

Session files allow you to save the current build status of the devices in your World Machine world file and restore it when you next open the TMD file. You can now work on a project, save your session, then restore it on another day and pick up where you left off without having to do a very lengthy rebuild. These session files will tend to be large, but are invaluable for projects involving large world sizes.

会话文件允许你保存当前创建的设备状态在你的World Machine 世界文件里,以便你下次恢复使用这个TMD文件.你现在可以工作在一个项目中,保存您的会话,然后另一天恢复,从不在使用到获取不需要太长的时间。这些会话文件会很大,但对于项目来说是无价的,因为他涉及大型的世界尺寸。

Better Render Extent Management更好的渲染范围管理

Render Extents can now have differing resolutions for easier management of close-up areas and RGB versus terrain builds.

渲染范围现在能以不同的解决方案更容易的管理特定区域和RGB与地形的构建

Automation Improvements自动化改进

Additional support has been included for scripting render settings such as resolution and world extents.

附加包括脚本渲染参数设置比如分辨率和世界范围.

Threading Improvements线程改进

There are two major improvements to threading. Firstly, virtually all devices that are processor- intensive now have internal multithreading code. All of your cores can be put to work even when the world file does not lend itself to parallel processing.

有两个主要的线程改善.首先,几乎所有的设备-处理器密集型,现在已经内置了多线程编码,可以把你所有的工作,甚至不适用的世界文件并行处理了。

In addition, you can now specify a limit on the number of independent build threads in progress at once. This reduces the memory consumption of tiled and multithreaded builds, while still making use of all of the multiprocessing power available.

另外.在运行中你现在可以指定独立的线程数量限制,这降低了瓷块的内存消耗和多线程构建,以此同时,可以使用更多的内存来创建其他的线程。

Improved Devices改良设备

Several new or improved devices are included in this release, including:

一些新的或改进设备都包含在这个版本,包括:

  • Color Gradient device: You can now create a bitmap from an input terrain using any of the built-in colortables, or your choice of external color gradient image files

  • 颜色渐变设备:你现在可以创建一个位图,从导入的地形中使用任何内置的颜色表,或者你可以选择外部的颜色渐变图像文件。

  • Mesh Output: You can now downsample terrains within the output device, allowing you to build both a high-resolution texture map and a low-resolution mesh in one build

  • 遮罩输出: 你现在可以下采样输出设备内的地形,允许你建立一个高分辨率的纹理贴图和一个低分辨率的网格来生成

  • Color Selector: Create a mask based upon matching a color or color attributes

  • 颜色选择器: 创建一个遮罩使颜色或颜色属性匹配

Streamlined Installer最新型的安装程序

World Machine is now fully compatible with the installation methods of Windows 7 and Vista. The installer also includes the ability to do silent installs and better handle roll-out across your company.

World Machine现在完全兼容Windows 7和Vista,安装程序包括静默安装,更好地处理推出在贵公司的能力

Installation安装

World Machine is available in three editions. Installation is straightforward: Run the supplied installer executable to begin the setup process.

World Machine有三个版本. 简单的安装: 运行安装程序提供可执行的开始安装过程.

  

安装界面

Silent Installations静默安装

You may choose to run the installer in silent mode to automate the installation of World Machine. This is useful for system administrators and others who want to distribute the product company-wide For a silent installation, run the installer from the command line with the following options:

你可以选择运行用静默模式自动安装这个 World Machine。这是有用的对于管理者和其他想要去发布产品的全公司选择静默安装,从命令行运行这个安装程序有以下选项:

WM22_Professional.exe /S /USERNAME=<USER company or>/REGKEY=<REGKEY>/D=<INSTDIR>

The /USERNAME= and /REGKEY= options specify their respective parameters. /D= specifies the installation directory. All of the above parameters are optional. If you have specified the user name and registration code during installation,

WM22_Professional.exe /S /USERNAME=<USER company or>/REGKEY=<REGKEY>/D=<INSTDIR>

The /USERNAME= and /REGKEY= 选项指定各自的参数 . /D=指定安装目录. 所有上面的参数是可选的. 如果你在安装过程中指定了用户名和注册码。
