Sample text

The engine finds the zone of a given 3D point and which object owns that zone. The engine then determines which zone or zones contain an object instance. At render time the scene is traversed starting from the zone that contains the camera, clipping each zone's objects to the visible portal set from the zones before it. The engine also performs the scoping of network objects, deciding whether a given object needs to be dealt with by a client. Every world object in the scene that can be rendered is derived from a single base class.

A control can contain any number of child controls. Each control maintains a bounding rectangle in the coordinate system of its parent control. The Control class processes input events, rendering, and mouse focus, and coordinates automatic sizing. Team LRN 25 26 Chapter 1 ■ Introduction to 3D Game Development 3D Rendering The Torque library has a modular, extensible 3D world rendering system. Game subclasses first define the camera orientation and field of view and then draw the 3D scene using OpenGL drawing commands.

Online adventure games have not really come into their own yet, although some games are emerging that might fit the genre. They tend to include elements of FPS action games and Role-Playing Games (RPGs) to fill out the game play, because the story aspect of the game is more difficult to accomplish in an online environment.
