For some reason I just felt that this site was lacking a unified tutorial that just had to do with these two topics. It is so incredibly integral to programming in 3d so why not post how to optimize performance with respect to these two things?

Strange you should mention this actually...

Yesterday I started writing a tutorial the implements Elipsoid Camera collision using the lesson 10 world. I'm about half way through the code, but everything so far is going well. It's turning out to be far larger than I thought so dont expect it for at least a week It should be pretty easy to implement bsp trees with it.

EDIT: Collision detection is done, and 3 pages of the tutorial I might finish it by Monday at this rate

yes but cant you create a colision detection tut just for triangles ( a very basic one easy to follow and bair in mind that some of the people using and benefiting from ur tuts are in school )

Is is based on Fluid Studios and/or Telemachos papers?


You should never let your fears become the boundaries of your dreams.

It is based on this.

Which if i remember correctly is similar if not the same technique as the Fluid studios one.

It is a complex method but i'm doing my best to explain it in detail. I also have a list of links to related information that should answer any questions.

The code is really just an adaptation of the code in the tutorial, to work with the Lesson 10 data structures. Although i've added a method which selects the possible colliders, instead of checking every polygon in the world.
