*** The license for ESRI CityEngine 2015 is “Basic Single Use” for the normal license and “Advanced Single Use Educational Teaching & Research Lab Kit” for the academic license. The license “Advanced Single Use” is available on special request (please ask for pricing). Upgrades refer to the main OpenDS software only, not to CityEngine.

If you prefer to buy items listed in the "Content" section above

Standard: 550 € / item

Academic: 300 € / item


OpenDS Pro Complete / Pro Complete CE already includes all content listed in this table released during the support period. Other versions of OpenDS may include some of the content (check the features table). Content purchased separately can be used with any version of OpenDS, including OpenDS Free. The items in this table generally do not include source code.

For content expected to be released in the near future, check our roadmap.


Extension / Upgrade Packages

If you already own a Pro version of OpenDS, you can extend the support period by purchasing an extension package. The extension will also enable you to obtain the latest version of the acquired components during the new extended support period. Extension packages can be purchased at any time during the support period, but cannot be obtained later than 60 days after the end of the previous support period (including extended support periods). After this time, a new main package needs to be purchased to receive the latest version and support. The edition (e.g. Pro, Pro CE, Pro Complete, Pro Complete CE) and type of license (e.g. Academic) for the extension must match the edition and license of the original main package.

Trial Versions

Your first option for evaluating OpenDS is by downloading installing OpenDS Free and running one of the included example driving tasks. If you are interested in premium driving tasks and other content, you can check out our descriptions and videos on the Driving Tasks page. Finally, if you would like to try out a particular task or other premium content hands-on, we may provide you with a trial version of the corresponding component – just send us an inquiry.


All OpenDS Pro license fees (including content) refer to a single installation (not bound to a particular machine). If you wish to use multiple installations concurrently, you will have to acquire the corresponding number of licenses.

The licenses for ESRI CityEngine are always “Single Use” licenses, which means that they are bound to one particular machine and installation. It is however possible to “move” the license to another machine at a later time.


In the Accessories menu, you find more products such as seat boxes, projection equipment, and motion chairs.


1 Source code is only available for the components included in OpenDS Free.
2 License: “Basic Single Use” (normal) or “Advanced Single Use Educational Teaching & Research Lab Kit” (academic).
