      I am having difficulties trying to understand how a fragment shader (GLSL) works in OpenGL. To be more specific, how does OpenGL reads the color/texture data?
      In the vertex Shader (GLSL) there is a pre-defined variable that sets the vertex data called gl_Position.
      So basically I am asking, what is the variable/method that sends color/texture data to the OpenGL program in the fragment shader or do i just type
      out vec4 fragColor;
      does that work? (above code)

      Hey guys, do you know how to fix this hexagon pattern on icosphere ? I'm sure that normals are calculated correctly per each faces. Is it because normals are not defined on edges ? See pic bellow for more details + source.

      INT is a 3D Sci-fi RPG with a strong emphasis on story, role playing, and innovative RPG features such as randomized companions. The focus is on the journey through a war-torn world with fast-paced combat against hordes of enemies. The player must accomplish quests like a traditional RPG, complete objectives, and meet lively crew members who will aid in the player's survival. Throughout the game you can side and complete missions through criminal cartels, and the two major combatants, the UCE and ACP, of the Interstellar Civil War.

      Hello people!
      Thanks for taking the time to read this post. I've been using Unity for a while now and I must say that I'm very impressed with it. Definitely a jump up from XNA. However, something that I've noticed that leaves a lot to be desired is the 2D tile-based collision. Below is a little video of a game I've been working on with a friend which demonstrates my problem. Essentially, games that use huge open planes and polygons don't seem to have many problems with collisions, but when a game consists of lots of small tiles stacked alongside each other, objects tends to get stuck in-between the gaps. For example, if I have a horizontal strip of little tiles, and the player runs along the top, sometimes he'll come to a standstill and have to rebuild his momentum, However, this is much more noticeable for the ball. The ball seems to consistently bounce around randomly by hitting into edges, due to the nature of how fast and random it moves, making it very hard for players to line up shots and make meaningful choices in how they attack the ball.
      So after doing a little Googling, it seems like there's absolutely nothing on this topic. It baffles me, because tile-based platformers seem to be everywhere on Steam! So after some more digging, I saw that many people were using composite colliders, so that after the level is generated, the tiles all merge together into one polygonal/composite collider. However, I've found that this problem still occurs even when using this method, especially near corners. Am I possibly overlooking a simple solution here? This has been giving us grief for months now!
      It's also worth mentioning that composite colliders create another problem within our game world. The blocks within the levels are meant to be damaged upon contact with the ball. However, when these are nested inside an object using a composite collider, none of these collisions fire off any more, essentially making all the blocks in the level indestructible. Is there a way to cycle through all of the colliders inside of a composite collider to check them individually? Any help would be mundo appreciated.

      Hi, so I've been experimenting with openGL in my spare time, I'm a mechanics programmer by day.
      And I was getting a nullptr access crash in glDrawArrays, I couldn't figure out why as I had other things drawing fine. 
      Then I tried increasing the number of triangles my cone code was generating and suddenly it worked.
      Is there a minimum buffer size that you need to request when using vbos?
      Seems like the minimum that will work on my computer is 66 vertices, with my current code at least.

      If anyone has any insight into this I'd appreciate the clarity.
