Creating a CityEngine Project

CityEngine projects, folders, and files can be created using several different approaches. In this section a project will be created using three different approaches:

A project can be created using the File →New menu. Once the project has been created a folder and file can be created as well. From the menu bar, select File →New, this has the same effect as clicking on the New Wizard button.


This will open the New Wizard.

In the New Wizard, select CityEngine→CityEngine project and then click Next.

In the Project name field, enter a name for the new project. Do not use spaces or special characters in the project name (for example, "MyFirstCity").

Leave the box checked to use the default location for your new project. Click Finish when you are done.

If you sneak a peek at the Navigator, you will see that it now contains the new project we just created.

You can also right-click in the Navigator in order to get the Navigator's context menu which allows you to create projects under New→CityEngine project.
