Changes since Pathfinder 2019.3.1217:

  • Added the ability to copy and paste geometry and view objects across separate Pathfinder instances.
  • Added Measurement Regions graphs (density vs time, velocity vs time, and speed vs density) in results graphs.
  • When using the command line monte carlo simulation generator, additional parameters now provide control over property and position randomization.
  • Removed the exclusion of top-level agents in Monte Carlo simulations.
  • Improved performance of high occupancy models with assisted evacuation.
  • Improved performance of vehicular occupants in elevators.
  • Improved appearance of stairs which have been merged with rooms and/or other stairs.
  • Fixed a bug where occupants might become stuck on each other when using a reduced geometry radius.
  • Fixed a bug where a background image with translucency might be shown as fully opaque.

Changes to Results:

  • Improved occupant path colors so they now track the color properly over time.
  • Fixed a bug where a background image with translucency might be shown as fully opaque.
  • Fixed a bug where Smoke3d Properties Dialog loads previous custom settings by default.
  • Fixed a bug where speed contours would not track occupants in beds or assisted occupants in wheelchairs.
