Viewer Status   Reports the status of the pathfinding navmesh including the download process of retrieving the navmesh data from the simulator.
Simulator Status   Reports the status of the region's navmesh on the simulator including when the navmesh has pending changes, is building, or is up-to-date.
View tab

Show

World   Select to display the normal world view of the region's objects.
Movables Only   Select to display only the region's objects that are not marked as affecting the navmesh (Walkable, Static Obstacle, Material Volume, or Exclusion Volume). This is useful to determine which objects on the region are still movable and thus contributing to increase pathfinding time on the simulator. Note: this checkbox is only enabled when World is also selected.
Navmesh   Toggles the display of the navmesh within the Viewer.
Show Walkability Map   If the navmesh is displayed, the drop-down enables you to view the navmesh as a heatmap. This mode enables you to view the walkability values baked into the navmesh in the style of a heatmap illustrating the respective values across the navmesh.
Walkables   Select to display the walkables used when the navmesh was generated. Use this option to visualize how objects of type walkable affected the navmesh generation.
Material Volumes   Select to display of material volumes used when the navmesh was generated. Use this option to visualize how objects of type material volume affected the navmesh generation.
Static Obstacles   Select to display static obstacles used when the navmesh was generated. Use this option to visualize how objects of type static obstacle affected the navmesh generation.
Exclusion Volumes   Select to display exclusion volumes used when the navmesh was generated. Use this option to visualize how objects of type exclusion volume affected the navmesh generation.
Water Plane   Select to display a simple plane representation of the water. Use this option when the World is hidden to visualize where the water-line is in the world.
With X-ray Vision   Select to alter the rendering into x-ray mode allowing for partial visibility through other objects. Use this option to get a better visualization of the world in complex situations.
