Managing your projects

What is a "projet" ?

A project is a reflection of the Instant Terra status.

Creating a new project or a project "by default"

Note

When you start an instance of Instant Terra, a new project is created automatically.

InstantTerraApi::InstantTerra it = InstantTerraApi::CreateInstantTerrain();

// Create a new project (default project)
InstantTerraApi::Project project = it.NewProject();

The NewProject() method replaces the current project with a new default project.

Warning

If you have made changes to your project and are trying to open another project, these changes will be lost!

Saving a project

InstantTerraApi::InstantTerra it = InstantTerraApi::CreateInstantTerrain();
InstantTerraApi::Project project = it.NewProject();

// Save the current project (default project)
project.Save(L"my_project.terrain");

The Save(filename) method saves the current project to a file.

Note

The saved file does not have a default extension; you must add .terrain to the end of the file name.

Opening a project

// Open a project
InstantTerraApi::Project project = it.OpenProject(L"my_project.terrain");

The OpenProject(filename) method opens an InstantTerra project from the specified file.

Warning

If you have made changes to your project and are trying to open another project, these changes will be lost!

Closing a project

// Close the current project
project.Close()

The Close() method closes the current project.

Warning

If you have made changes to your project and are trying to open another project, these changes will be lost!
