Esri CityEngine 2014.1 FileGDB and CGA Compiler Patch

Summary

This patch addresses three issues in Esri CityEngine 2014.1. First, the FileGDB Importer now handles short integer fields correctly, instead of converting to a Boolean field. Second, the CGA Compiler is updated to version 1.4 which creates correct .cgb and .rpk files for rule files with styles. Third, a crash is fixed for handling polygons with holes. It is strongly recommended for all users to install this patch.
