A question: character control

im a begginer at panda but im getting a hang of it. so this is my question: how do i make a controllable character. for start, i dont mean any animation of it just …lets say…a simple ball for me(you) to control and guide it through the map.

First you have to load a model file:

model = loader.loadModel("models/mymodelfile")

mymodelfile can be a egg or a bam file
By reparenting the model to render you make this model “visible”
then you can set is position.


The best way to dive into Panda3D is to read the manual
The first sections are easy to learn and easy to understand.
If you have more questions just ask here or ask in the irc(freenode.net #Panda3D)
