Hey, Now that I have the basics of my engine down (only position setting and rotation) down, I feel that i should get my matrix maths done proeprly (which I don't think im doing at the moment). Here are my questions... 1) Should I store the position of my object as a 3d-vector or a translation matrix? 2) How should rotation information be stored? I currently use a 3d vector that stores the angles (0, 180, 360, 540 etc I was going to implant limits first). 3) How do i move a matrix. Eg, I rotate the camera, and translate on the z-axis and the camera moves the direction it is facing. I was currently doing this by doing Final = (Translate[CurrentPosition] * Rotate[TheCurrentRotation]) * MoveMatrix. Any other advice very much appreciated! aCiD2
