# Calculating pos-vector for skybox - I get mad ...

Hello all, I got a strange problem with that topic. I have a skybox rendered like that:

D3DXMatrixTranslation(&world_mat, camera.vPos.x, camera.vPos.y, camera.vPos.z);
directx.device->SetTransform(D3DTS_WORLD, &world_mat);

The camera-moves are calculated like that:

vPos.x += vRight.x * fX;
vPos.y += vRight.y * fX;
vPos.z += vRight.z * fX;

vPos.x += vUp.x * fY;
vPos.y += vUp.y * fY;
vPos.z += vUp.z * fY;

vPos.x += vDir.x * fZ;
vPos.y += vDir.y * fZ;
vPos.z += vDir.z * fZ;

So, if I set number-constants like the following, everything is alright. The box got positioned in the center and it gots its normal sidelenght. (for example 1.0 from vertex to vertex)

D3DXMatrixTranslation(&world_mat, 0, 0, 0);

If I set 100, 100, 100 as parameters for the translation, also everything is as it has to be. The box moves 100 in each direction. But if I set the code I first posted, with the coords of my camera, wich are the three values of a vector, the box gets to big. Much to big. The position is right, but it is rendered for two or more games .. Anyone got any idea? I''m lost .... :-) Python
