Viewpoints are shortcuts to different camera positions in the 3D world. 

Working with Viewpoints

You’ll find the Viewpoints tool on the right side of your screen. Open it to get started.

Creating Viewpoints is easy:

  1. Navigate to a specific position
  2. Set a label by filling in the input field at the bottom of the window (optional)
  3. Click the plus button in the bottom right corner of the window…
  4. … et voilà! You’ve made your first Viewpoint.

Setting the Start View

Start View is the camera position OpenCities Planner uses when a project is loaded. It is indicated by the house icon, in the main window.

Here’s how to switch which Viewpoint is used on load:

  1. Click a Viewpoint to edit it
  2. Click the ‘Set as Start View‘ button





The first Viewpoint you create is used as the default Start View.
