View Full Version : Creating an object

kk, for some reason i am still having problems texturing my car when i load it into my skybox. So i have the following program.

#include "stdafx.h"
#include <windows.h>
#include <GL/glut.h>
#include "coursework2.h"
#include "texture.h"
#include "3dsloader.h"

int screen_width=640;
int screen_height=480;

// Absolute rotation values (0-359 degrees) and rotation increments for each frame
double rotation_x=0, rotation_x_increment=0.1;
double rotation_y=0, rotation_y_increment=0.05;
double rotation_z=0, rotation_z_increment=0.03;

// Flag for rendering as lines or filled polygons
int filling=1; //0=OFF 1=ON

obj_type object;

/************************************************** ********

************************************************** *******/

void init(void)
glClearColor(0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0); // This clear the background color to black
glShadeModel(GL_SMOOTH); // Type of shading for the polygons

// Viewport transformation

// Projection transformation
glMatrixMode(GL_PROJECTION); // Specifies which matrix stack is the target for matrix operations
glLoadIdentity(); // initialize the projection matrix as identity
gluPerspective(45.0f,(GLfloat)screen_width/(GLfloat)screen_height,10.0f,10000.0f); // define the "viewing volume"

glEnable(GL_DEPTH_TEST); // enable the depth test (also called z buffer)
glPolygonMode (GL_FRONT_AND_BACK, GL_FILL); // Polygon rasterization mode (polygon filled)

glEnable(GL_TEXTURE_2D); // This Enable the Texture mapping

Load3DS (&amp;object,"GTR.3ds");

object.id_texture=LoadBitmap("body.bmp"); // The Function LoadBitmap() return the current texture ID


/************************************************** ********

void resize (int width, int height)
screen_width=width; // obtain the new screen width values and store it
screen_height=height; // Height value

glClear (GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT | GL_DEPTH_BUFFER_BIT); // clear both the color and the depth buffer so to draw the next frame
glViewport(0,0,screen_width,screen_height); // Viewport transformation

glMatrixMode(GL_PROJECTION); // Projection transformation
glLoadIdentity(); // initialize the projection matrix as identity

glutPostRedisplay (); // This command redraws the scene

/************************************************** ********

void display(void)
int l_index;

glMatrixMode(GL_MODELVIEW); // Modeling transformation
glLoadIdentity(); // Initialize the model matrix as identity

glTranslatef(0.0,0.0,-300); // move the object forward (the model matrix is multiplied by the translation matrix)

rotation_x = rotation_x + rotation_x_increment;
rotation_y = rotation_y + rotation_y_increment;
rotation_z = rotation_z + rotation_z_increment;

if (rotation_x > 359) rotation_x = 0;
if (rotation_y > 359) rotation_y = 0;
if (rotation_z > 359) rotation_z = 0;

glRotatef(rotation_x,1.0,0.0,0.0); // Rotations of the object (the model matrix is multiplied by the rotation matrices)

glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, object.id_texture); // set the active texture

for (l_index=0;l_index<object.polygons_qty;l_index++)
//----------------- FIRST VERTEX -----------------
// Texture coordinates of the first vertex
glTexCoord2f( object.mapcoord[ object.polygon[l_index].a ].u,
object.mapcoord[ object.polygon[l_index].a ].v);
// Coordinates of the first vertex
glVertex3f( object.vertex[ object.polygon[l_index].a ].x,
object.vertex[ object.polygon[l_index].a ].y,

//----------------- SECOND VERTEX -----------------
// Texture coordinates of the second vertex

//----------------- THIRD VERTEX -----------------

This code works and texures my car. Because i know this class works, is it possible to create an object of this class, and load that into my skybox? Would i need to create a constructor in my .h file?

What is the relationship between "texturing a car object" and a skybox?
Is this a C++ question? You should ask a more general forum. To instanciate a C++ class, you need to comply to the written constructors. If there are not, the default construct which consists in doing absolutely nothing apart from allocating memory is called. So here, in your code there is no problem with instancing one of these structures.
