Hello, I''ve been doing alot of research on storing objects in such a way for fast FOV culling. It seems many people have suggested that BSP Trees are the way to go. But are they? It seems that whenever an object moves, that object must be removed from the tree and then reinserted. When you have an environment that has a lot of moving objects, this can be qutie the workload. So my question is: What is the best way to store moving objects in such a way where calculating culling and collision detection would be fast? I''ve looked into ordering tables as well as a combination of ordering tables and BSP trees. Alot of games for the new consoles have a rather large amount of moving objects. Much more than most games before it. How are they stored? Thanks, Shaun
