CityBLD Features

Even in beta stage, CityBLD is an extremely feature-rich toolset. Here is a list of features that are available immediately, with many new features added each week.

ROADS

CityBLD includes the most powerful road creation toolset available for Unreal.

  • Simple road brush tool - click in the world to draw roads and highways

  • Dedicated highways tool, allowing smooth merges

  • Merge types - customize the meshes spawned at merges, merge angle, number of merge lanes, merge lane length, and more.

  • Parametric road markings that are dynamically applied to any road material you use

  • Road end markings - add crosswalks, turn lane markings, and more at the end of roads

  • Point and spot lights can be attached to street lamps and turned on and off at runtime

  • Control spline handle allows you to precisely and evenly adjust the angle of a road curve

  • Elevation adjustments - simply scroll the mouse wheel to raise and lower the road or highway as you draw

  • When elevated, roads and highways can automatically spawn guardrails and  bridge supports which align to avoid overlapping underlying roads or highways

  • When lowered beneath the ground, highways automatically generate tunnels

  • Instantly align the landscape to roads & highways as they are drawn

  • Many AAA quality road & highway presets are included for free with the plugin

Optimization

  • Convert entire areas of a city to instanced meshes inside a single actor

  • Full Nanite compatibility

  • Spawn small details at runtime for zero memory overhead

Export

  • Convert buildings and roads to .fbx format for export to third-party software

CityBLD's modular building generator is the most flexible on the market, allowing all types of buildings to be generated with any shape or angle.

  • Any 2D shape supported by the building generator

  • Buildings can have any number of sides

  • Areas within streets can be automatically subdivided into smaller lots, which can contain buildings, props, and other details.

  • Buildings can generate foundation walls and steps on steep slopes

  • Procedural flat rooftops that conform to the building shape

  • Procedural gabled rooftops that conform to the building shape

  • Procedural hipped rooftops that conform to the building shape
