Shapes Demo with Direct3D11 and SlimDX

Sign in to follow this  


This time up, we are going to add some additional shape types to our GeometryGenerator class, and look at how to redraw the same geometry at different locations and scales in our scene. This example corresponds to the ShapesDemo from Frank Luna's Introduction to 3D Game Programming with Direct3D 11.0.

NOTE: The framerate is atrocious because I am running on an old Intel G45/43 integrated chipset... On a real 3D chipset, like my GTX 560 Ti, you would have several thousand frames per second.

As you can see, in addition to the Grid mesh that we implemented previously for the Hills Demo, we have added a box, spheres, and cylinders. We are also only keeping a single instance of each type of geometry in our vertex and index buffers, and drawing them with different world matrices to render multiple objects in our scene. Lastly, we are drawing in wireframe mode, which involves setting up some different render states from our previous examples.
