I just recently discovered Panda3d - and just by playing around with it, I got quite far. A lot further than with other open-source 3d engines, that’s for sure.
Here’s a problem I have (most certainly just misunderstanding something):
If I take the Code from the GeoMipTerrain Manual Page - with the extraArgs= correction I got from the forum and wireframe-mode, just for checking - it seems that if I move the camera (thus the focal point), the terrain doesn’t get updated. Meaning: The high resolution part of the terrain is still around the starting position of the camera (0, 0), and stays that way even if I move the camera around.
Now I believed from reading the manual that update() should take care of that; maybe I’m mistaken. But what’s the idea then? Should I manually check the position of the camera and call generate() when it has moved? I’m afraid I don’t get it.
Thanks in advance for any reply!
