Does anyone know of a goodway to do shadows in space? Meaning the light source would be very far away (say a milion miles). The point is to get shadows on all flying objects, nothing more(this includes spaceships only). The desired effect is similar to starwars, when the big ship flew over the little one, darkening it inch by inch. I know how to do it with stencil buffer, but in this case the lightsource wouldn''t make a pixel in the distance. Anyway, the star (sun) is huge, so it''s not a point light, but a directional, but ships should have an ability to fly fast enought so that the direction of it would change... .....lost...need help...come in houston...
