Detailed Description

Options class which just stores default options for the terrain.

Remarks
None of these options are stored with the terrain when saved. They are options that you can use to modify the behaviour of the terrain when it is loaded or created.
Note
You should construct a single instance of this class per application and do so before you start working with any other terrain classes.

◆ getCastsDynamicShadows()

bool Ogre::TerrainGlobalOptions::getCastsDynamicShadows ( ) const
inline

Whether the terrain will be able to cast shadows (texture shadows only are supported, and you must be using depth shadow maps).

◆ setCastsDynamicShadows()

void Ogre::TerrainGlobalOptions::setCastsDynamicShadows ( bool  s)
inline

Whether the terrain will be able to cast shadows (texture shadows only are supported, and you must be using depth shadow maps).

This value can be set dynamically, and affects all existing terrains. It defaults to false.

◆ getMaxPixelError()

Real Ogre::TerrainGlobalOptions::getMaxPixelError ( ) const
inline

Get the maximum screen pixel error that should be allowed when rendering.

◆ setMaxPixelError()

void Ogre::TerrainGlobalOptions::setMaxPixelError ( Real  pixerr)
inline

Set the maximum screen pixel error that should be allowed when rendering.

Note
This value can be varied dynamically and affects all existing terrains. It will be weighted by the LOD bias on viewports.

◆ getRenderQueueGroup()

uint8 Ogre::TerrainGlobalOptions::getRenderQueueGroup ( void  ) const
inline

Get the render queue group that this terrain will be rendered into.

◆ setRenderQueueGroup()

void Ogre::TerrainGlobalOptions::setRenderQueueGroup ( uint8  grp)
inline

Set the render queue group that terrains will be rendered into.

Remarks
This applies to newly created terrains, after which they will maintain their own queue group settings

◆ getVisibilityFlags()

uint32 Ogre::TerrainGlobalOptions::getVisibilityFlags ( void  ) const
inline

Get the visbility flags that terrains will be rendered with.

◆ setVisibilityFlags()

void Ogre::TerrainGlobalOptions::setVisibilityFlags ( uint32  flags)
inline

Set the visbility flags that terrains will be rendered with.

Remarks
This applies to newly created terrains, after which they will maintain their own settings

◆ setQueryFlags()

void Ogre::TerrainGlobalOptions::setQueryFlags ( uint32  flags)
inline

Set the default query flags for terrains.

Remarks
This applies to newly created terrains, after which they will maintain their own settings

◆ getQueryFlags()

uint32 Ogre::TerrainGlobalOptions::getQueryFlags ( void  ) const
inline

Get the default query flags for terrains.

◆ addQueryFlags()

void Ogre::TerrainGlobalOptions::addQueryFlags ( uint32  flags)
inline

As setQueryFlags, except the flags passed as parameters are appended to the existing flags on this object.

◆ removeQueryFlags()

void Ogre::TerrainGlobalOptions::removeQueryFlags ( uint32  flags)
inline

◆ getUseRayBoxDistanceCalculation()

bool Ogre::TerrainGlobalOptions::getUseRayBoxDistanceCalculation ( ) const
inline

Returns whether or not to use an accurate calculation of camera distance from a terrain tile (ray / AABB intersection) or whether to use the simpler distance from the tile centre.

◆ setUseRayBoxDistanceCalculation()

void Ogre::TerrainGlobalOptions::setUseRayBoxDistanceCalculation ( bool  rb)
inline

Sets whether to use an accurate ray / box intersection to determine distance from a terrain tile, or whether to use the simple distance from the tile centre.

Using ray/box intersection will result in higher detail terrain because the LOD calculation is more conservative, assuming the 'worst case scenario' of a large height difference at the edge of a tile. This is guaranteed to give you at least the max pixel error or better, but will often give you more detail than you need. Not using the ray/box method is cheaper but will only use the max pixel error as a guide, the actual error will vary above and below that. The default is not to use the ray/box approach.

◆ getDefaultMaterialGenerator()

TerrainMaterialGeneratorPtr Ogre::TerrainGlobalOptions::getDefaultMaterialGenerator ( )

Get the default material generator.

◆ setDefaultMaterialGenerator()

void Ogre::TerrainGlobalOptions::setDefaultMaterialGenerator ( TerrainMaterialGeneratorPtr  gen)

Get the default size of the blend maps for a new terrain.

◆ setLayerBlendMapSize()

void Ogre::TerrainGlobalOptions::setLayerBlendMapSize ( uint16  sz)
inline

Sets the default size of blend maps for a new terrain.

This is the resolution of each blending layer for a new terrain. Once created, this information will be stored with the terrain.

◆ getDefaultLayerTextureWorldSize()

inline

Get the default world size for a layer 'splat' texture to cover.

◆ setDefaultGlobalColourMapSize()

Set the default size of the terrain global colour map for a new terrain.

Once created, this information will be stored with the terrain.

◆ getLightMapSize()

inline

Sets the default size of composite maps for a new terrain.

◆ setDefaultResourceGroup()

Set the default resource group to use to load / save terrains.

◆ getDefaultResourceGroup()

const String& Ogre::TerrainGlobalOptions::getDefaultResourceGroup ( ) const

Get the default resource group to use to load / save terrains.

◆ getUseVertexCompressionWhenAvailable()

bool Ogre::TerrainGlobalOptions::getUseVertexCompressionWhenAvailable ( ) const
inline

Get whether to allow vertex compression to be used when the material generator states that it supports it.

◆ setUseVertexCompressionWhenAvailable()

void Ogre::TerrainGlobalOptions::setUseVertexCompressionWhenAvailable ( bool  enable)
inline

Set whether to allow vertex compression to be used when the material generator states that it supports it.

Note
You should only call this before creating any terrain instances. The default is true, so if a material generator supports compressed vertices, and so does the hardware (this basically means shader support), they will be used). However you can disable this in an emergency if required.

◆ getSingleton()

static TerrainGlobalOptions& Ogre::TerrainGlobalOptions::getSingleton ( void  )
static

Get the singleton instance.

◆ getSingletonPtr()

static TerrainGlobalOptions* Ogre::TerrainGlobalOptions::getSingletonPtr ( void  )
static

Get the singleton instance.
