Visionaire Data Structure

This is the official documentation of the Visionaire Data Structure.

The complete data structure is now well documented. It consists of different tables (storing different types of objects) and is stored in a XML file on disk (ved-file). Not all fields in this documentation are stored in the ved-files (project files), some of them are only created during the game and stored in the savegames. The column 'Storage' describes where each field is saved. A field with Storage 'V' is saved in the ved-file. If there is a 'S' in this column then this field is stored in savegames. If you want you can write your own tools which manipulate the ved-files to edit some settings differently than the Visionaire Editor (for fields with Storage type 'V').

Each field is accesible through scripting now. Theoretically every field can be read or written. However, in practice it does not make sense for all fields to change them because the Visionaire Player does not react to all changes and certain fields are not stored in savegames. For this purpose there is a column 'Scriptable' next to each field indicating if the field can be written. Fields which can be changed with the Scripting Language are displayed in a different color. If you want to access a field through scripting you have to use the field constants. A field constant starts with a 'V' followed by the field name. E.g. to access the field GameCurrentScene you would have to use the constant VGameCurrentScene (the scripting command could look like this: "game:getLink(VGameCurrentScene)").

The tables starting with 'Active' contain dynamically created objects. For example all actions are stored in the table Action but once an action gets executed an object in ActiveAction will be created where the currently active action is stored.
