I wonder if you can remember that 18 chapter RTS tutorial that was posted on gamedev a time ago. I've found it a few days ago on my drive, having found new interest in the rts genre. I would like to follow the same tasklist, like 1. Create selection box, 2. Select an object, 3. Select multiple objects...etc. But I would like to try and do it in 3d. I know that i should look into 3d picking, but i haven't had much luck in understanding how to select a box/cube. Is there any other tutorial you guys know about that would help? Btw, i'm using C++ / DirectX9. Thanx in advance. Snowy

To select individual units use ray picking. For multiple units you can use a bounding box or just a region.
