One the biggest changes in TCV 1.1 is the enhancement of the User Interface Technology. The whole user interface has been moved to Adobe Flash Technologies and is more responsive then before.

  • We've added the ability to save a house as a template or to copy an existing house to quickly add more houses into TCV.
  • You can now quickly search for any of the projects in TCV.
  • You can organize your projects into categories in order to take better control of your categories.
  • You no longer need to enter a TRCC number for registration.
