Bohemia Interactive Simulations has released updates to its VBS Blue IG and VBS IG SDK products, the company announced on 26 June.

VBS Blue IG is a CIGI-compliant, 3D whole-earth image generator that provides day/dusk/night scenes across multiple synchronised displays to support the full spectrum of land, sea, and air use cases. VBS Blue IG includes a baseline, geo-specific global terrain that is procedurally enhanced based on real-world metadata. Developers have the option to blend the procedural content with satellite imagery, high-resolution terrain, and additional geo-specific features to enhance areas of special interest.

The updated version of VBS Blue IG, VBS Blue IG v18.2, offers stability and performance improvements and provides support for multiple GPUs to improve performance. This allows users to set VBS Blue IG to use different GPUs for separate tasks, such as assigning one GPU to handle scene rendering while assigning another to handle terrain refinement.

VBS IG SDK allows developers to customise and extend VBS Blue IG by providing a framework and suite of tools. It includes a library of APIs and source code, allowing developers to customise virtually every aspect of VBS Blue IG and produce custom applications. The APIs form a modular plug-in architecture that enables developers to integrate third-party technologies effectively and efficiently.

The updated version, VBS IG SDK v18.2, features new tools and new APIs for customising and extending VBS Blue IG. It also includes new APIs for controlling weather states, damage states, entity thermal factors and lights.
