View Full Version : Trying to create a 3d matrix plane

01-25-2006, 01:12 PM
I'm a complete newbie to opengl, although i am familiar with it's libraries and other graphics library such as SDL.

I would like to create a 3d matrix to be used as a plane. I should be able to navigate through it with mouse or keyboard. The idea is that i can place objects (network items) on this plane and navigate it as such. Think 4thplanet.com.

Is such a thing hard to create and are there any examples or suggestions people can give me ? Right now i only need a 3d plane, i'm hoping that i can go further from there as i learn more opengl.
