Thanks a lot. I'm about to try it out.

But how about a public Camera Object3D.lookThrough()? That way you could set an invisible object as your camera. That's probably insanely easy to do, and you could just addChild(cameraObject) to another object. You have to admit that is very useful. How about it?

Just so you don't think I'm a moron, I believe my problem comes from adjusting the camera before building all the objects. Building the objects just seems like the last thing to do when initializing. I still think that the set() and follow() methods are useful, but I understand your position.

That's neither set() nor follow(). Follow has to consider the camera's previous settings (as determined by set()).

They would be two cool methods to have but if you won't include them I'll be happy to get their respective codes from you. :-)

Seriously I'll be grateful for any help.

I just answered all your questions: you would set the distance and angle, then call Camera.set(Object3D). From then on, you would call Camera.follow(Object3D) which would adjust its position relative to the object as if it were being pulled by a stick.

Yes, but a lot of the things you put in an engine don't fit everyone's needs. This would be very cool because camera-handling is always a pain-in-the-ass.

Anyway, I was thinking about it and you would need two methods. A Camera.set(Object3D) indicating that the camera's position relative to the object has been set, and the aforementioned Camera.follow(Object3D). Pretty please?

Egon, Can I take your lack of response to indicate that you aprove of my camera suggestion?

Just that: follow an object. Like the camera follows the X-Wing in the Rogue Squadron series, or like you would want a camera following a character who is walking around an environment (over the shoulder) for an RPG. Example of the camera following the x-wing:

Apart from better lighting controls (already promised in the docs), how about a Camera.follow(Object3D)? Could either start its own thread, or take the Object3D's current position plus the camera's delta from it once. That would be cool.

Oh, you know what it was? Another rookie mistake: since I was adding the cockpit as child to the x-wing, I wasn't adding it to the world, so the cockpit appeared completely transparent because it wasn't being rendered!

I mean levels of transparency.

Sorry, my very newbie mistake. The screenshot follows and it looks exactly as it should. Thanks a lot for a very cool and straightforward engine. By the way, I expect partial transparency is not possible on the software renderer. Is that right?

Yeah, I can post a screenshot. And yes, I called World.buildAllObjects(). Give me a couple of hours to get back home. Again, thanks for your time.

The thing is that it's not totally answered: the software renderer (really, the part that interests me the most in this engine), still fails to map all parts of it.

Wow. Thanks a lot.

Now, why was the cockpit a separate object? Just for the transparency setting? And why the dummy objects? Those I don't get.

It is possible that the Loader class would flip some faces upon importing them, but there are no flipped faces on the file itself. I even tried flipping them wrong in an attempt to get them right, but it didn't work. I don't think this is the problem, but thanks for the suggestion.
