Spherical nightmares!

Recommended Posts

Could somebody please point me in the right direction. I am trying to write a 3d strategy game where the 'board' is wrapped around a sphere. Could someone tell me how to let the user select specific areas of that sphere in such a way the program knows what they have selected. Just a little help would be useful.

if you are using directx, there is an example of picking triangles on a mesh

also there is code to map screen coordinates onto a sphere
