NeoAxis Engine 2021.1 Released

NeoAxis company releases a new version of NeoAxis Engine, an integrated development environment with built-in 3D/2D game engine. The environment can be used to develop all kinds of 3D and 2D projects such as computer games, visual trainers, VR systems, to visualize processes and develop windowed applications.

NeoAxis 2021.1 includes improvements for ambient lighting, metal materials, rendering speed, rendering quality, basic content. Has been added a set of paid add-ons such as Industrial Kit, Pipe Constructor, Fence Constructor, Road Constructor.

A new forest scene template with a world generator

The world generator component to make environments procedurally. The new forest scene template with the generator has been added.

Significant improvements to the speed of the rendering pipeline

The multithreaded rendering pipeline now delivers data to the GPU ever more efficiently.

Outline effect to highlight selected objects

The selected objects in the editor are now highlighted with the outline effect. The outline effect is also can be used as usual screen effect. Read more.

Basic materials library update

Basic Materials library has been updated. Now it contains 206 materials.

Basic environments library update

Basic Environments library has been updated. Now it contains 27 skyboxes.

Better lighting

Ambient lighting and metal materials have been improved.

Curve In Space improvement

The support of geometry generation, collision have been added.

Remove texture tiling

Added a mode for removing the tiling effect. To enable the effect, you need in the samplers of the material enable a 'Remove Tiling' parameter. The effect can be disabled for a whole scene in the rendering pipeline.

Industrial Kit (paid add-on)

The extensive solution for easily and fast making industrial real-time 3D environments. The kit includes many constructors. Read more.

Pipe Constructor (paid add-on)

The complete solution for easily making pipes of any types. The add-on includes easy to use constructor of pipes, valves, indicators. Read more.

Fence Constructor (paid add-on)

The complete solution for easily making fences of any types. The add-on includes easy to use constructor of fences, barriers, castles. Read more.

Road Constructor (paid add-on)

The solution for easily making roads. The add-on includes easy to use constructor of roads, roadsides, overpasses, crossroads. Read more.
