editor design troubles

Recommended Posts

I''m having huge troubles designing the code structure for my world editor (using C++ and DirectX). What makes it hard is that input has to come from the windows procedure and somehow end up modifying vertex buffers, meanwhile going through state lookups to see what texture is selected and so on. My classes aren''t really classes at all. My private variables are pointless, there are accessor functions for about half of them. I need some basic design help here .

Sometimes it better to take a deep breath, and start over than try to continue with a cobbled together project. This time tho, write out what you want the editor to do, and a realistic way of doing it. Go read some info on design documenting. Most importantly...

-- do not start coding until your design document is finished! --
that is very important.

Its ok to change a few things that didn''t work out the way you wanted tho.
