      Download the Game Design and Indie Game Marketing Freebook   07/19/17

      GameDev.net and CRC Press have teamed up to bring a free ebook of content curated from top titles published by CRC Press. The freebook, Practices of Game Design & Indie Game Marketing, includes chapters from The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses, A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, and An Architectural Approach to Level Design. The GameDev.net FreeBook is relevant to game designers, developers, and those interested in learning more about the challenges in game development. We know game development can be a tough discipline and business, so we picked several chapters from CRC Press titles that we thought would be of interest to you, the GameDev.net audience, in your journey to design, develop, and market your next game. The free ebook is available through CRC Press by clicking here. The Curated Books The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses, Second Edition, by Jesse Schell Presents 100+ sets of questions, or different lenses, for viewing a game’s design, encompassing diverse fields such as psychology, architecture, music, film, software engineering, theme park design, mathematics, anthropology, and more. Written by one of the world's top game designers, this book describes the deepest and most fundamental principles of game design, demonstrating how tactics used in board, card, and athletic games also work in video games. It provides practical instruction on creating world-class games that will be played again and again. View it here. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, by Joel Dreskin Marketing is an essential but too frequently overlooked or minimized component of the release plan for indie games. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing provides you with the tools needed to build visibility and sell your indie games. With special focus on those developers with small budgets and limited staff and resources, this book is packed with tangible recommendations and techniques that you can put to use immediately. As a seasoned professional of the indie game arena, author Joel Dreskin gives you insight into practical, real-world experiences of marketing numerous successful games and also provides stories of the failures. View it here. An Architectural Approach to Level Design This is one of the first books to integrate architectural and spatial design theory with the field of level design. The book presents architectural techniques and theories for level designers to use in their own work. It connects architecture and level design in different ways that address the practical elements of how designers construct space and the experiential elements of how and why humans interact with this space. Throughout the text, readers learn skills for spatial layout, evoking emotion through gamespaces, and creating better levels through architectural theory. View it here.

Oriented Bounding Box (rotating about the central point)

6 posts in this topic

The problem is: when rotating the OBB, it performs a rotation about the x axis instead of a rotation about the local axis (wich seems that i've already implemented this with quaternion). I think that probably is the drawing method. What i'm doing wrong? How do you guys perfoms render on a cube (GL_POLYGON, GL_CUBE, GL_LINELOOP...) ?
 
min = 0, 0, 0
max = 2, 2, 2
 
PS: when i draw a cube/sphere it's rotate normally
 
Problem: I need to rotate the OBB about the central point.
 
float angle;
        Vector axis;
 
        orientation.angleAxis(angle, axis);
        glTranslatef(position.x, position.y, position.z);
        glRotatef(angle / Mathematics::pi * 180.0f, axis.x, axis.y, axis.z);
 
        glBegin(GL_LINES);
        glColor3f(1.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f);
 
        //8 LINE SEGMENTS;
 
        Vector v0(min[0], min[1], min[2]);
        Vector v1(max[0], min[1], min[2]);
        Vector v2(max[0], max[1], min[2]);
        Vector v3(min[0], max[1], min[2]);
        Vector v4(min[0], min[1], max[2]);
        Vector v5(max[0], min[1], max[2]);
        Vector v6(max[0], max[1], max[2]);
        Vector v7(min[0], max[1], max[2]);
 
        glVertex3fv(&v0[0]); glVertex3fv(&v1[0]);
        glVertex3fv(&v1[0]); glVertex3fv(&v2[0]);
        glVertex3fv(&v2[0]); glVertex3fv(&v3[0]);
        glVertex3fv(&v3[0]); glVertex3fv(&v0[0]);
        glVertex3fv(&v4[0]); glVertex3fv(&v5[0]);
        glVertex3fv(&v5[0]); glVertex3fv(&v6[0]);
        glVertex3fv(&v6[0]); glVertex3fv(&v7[0]);
        glVertex3fv(&v7[0]); glVertex3fv(&v4[0]);
        glVertex3fv(&v0[0]); glVertex3fv(&v4[0]);
        glVertex3fv(&v1[0]); glVertex3fv(&v5[0]);
        glVertex3fv(&v2[0]); glVertex3fv(&v6[0]);
        glVertex3fv(&v3[0]); glVertex3fv(&v7[0]);
glEnd();
glPushMatrix();
 
Thanks guys!!!

glTranslatef(position.x, position.y, position.z);
glRotatef(angle / Mathematics::pi * 180.0f, axis.x, axis.y, axis.z);
 
just do it the other way around:
glRotatef(angle / Mathematics::pi * 180.0f, axis.x, axis.y, axis.z);
glTranslatef(position.x, position.y, position.z);
 
Edit: The idea is, that your objects vertices have positions relative to your objects center. Without transformation, this center will be the same as the worlds center. glTranslate and glRotate always transform relative to the worlds center. This means if you first translate, your object will be placed at a different position in the world, now if you rotate, that new position+your vertex positions will be rotate around the worlds center. If you rotate first, your object is rotated around the worlds center, which is also its own center and then it is moved to its final position. This explanation is probably not mathematically perfect, but should give a basic feeling for correct transformation orders. If you want to understand this in more detail, check out rotation and translation matrices and matrix multiplication, especially homogeneous matrices.

Now seems to REALLY rotate about the world center sad.png . I think the first try it's more correct. When I draw a cube like this:

 

glBegin(GL_POLYGON);
glColor3f( 1.0, 1.0, 1.0 );
glVertex3f( 0.5, -0.5, 0.5 );
glVertex3f( 0.5, 0.5, 0.5 );
glVertex3f( -0.5, 0.5, 0.5 );
glVertex3f( -0.5, -0.5, 0.5 );
glEnd();

// Purple side - RIGHT
glBegin(GL_POLYGON);
glColor3f( 1.0, 0.0, 1.0 );
glVertex3f( 0.5, -0.5, -0.5 );
glVertex3f( 0.5, 0.5, -0.5 );
glVertex3f( 0.5, 0.5, 0.5 );
glVertex3f( 0.5, -0.5, 0.5 );
glEnd();

// Green side - LEFT
glBegin(GL_POLYGON);
glColor3f( 0.0, 1.0, 0.0 );
glVertex3f( -0.5, -0.5, 0.5 );
glVertex3f( -0.5, 0.5, 0.5 );
glVertex3f( -0.5, 0.5, -0.5 );
glVertex3f( -0.5, -0.5, -0.5 );
glEnd();

// Blue side - TOP
glBegin(GL_POLYGON);
glColor3f( 0.0, 0.0, 1.0 );
glVertex3f( 0.5, 0.5, 0.5 );
glVertex3f( 0.5, 0.5, -0.5 );
glVertex3f( -0.5, 0.5, -0.5 );
glVertex3f( -0.5, 0.5, 0.5 );
glEnd();

// Red side - BOTTOM
glBegin(GL_POLYGON);
glColor3f( 1.0, 0.0, 0.0 );
glVertex3f( 0.5, -0.5, -0.5 );
glVertex3f( 0.5, -0.5, 0.5 );
glVertex3f( -0.5, -0.5, 0.5 );
glVertex3f( -0.5, -0.5, -0.5 );
glEnd();

 

Rotates perfectly. Maybe is a problem with max and min and I can't figure out. If someone know how to correctly draw a OBB...

glTranslate(x,y,z);glRotate(angle,x,y,z)  and Set up all your vertices as if your box is axigned aligned. If you are using Quaternion you can always convert your quaternion of your object local rotation to an axis and angle and feed that to glRotate.

Would changing:


min = 0, 0, 0
max = 2, 2, 2
 

to

 

min  = -1.0, -1.0, -1.0

max =  1.0,  1.0,  1.0

 

 

work?
