This is my first post so I'd just like to start off by saying hello to one and all on this forum
My introduction: I'm 22 in my final year at university studying Computer Science and am working on a 3D game/environment.
I've chosen Java3D and am still learning the ropes with the tool. My main problem right now is with textures.
I've started by creating geometry for a flat floor made up with 100 squares, so it's a 10x10 grid. I've done this using the QuadArray structure. I have specified texture coordinates and have loaded in a texture. The problem is it displays nothing - the world is just black.
But when I simply change the QuadArray structure for a LineArray structure the lines are displayed and the texture is applied to the lines. I know for a fact the geometry created in the loop is correct. The texture must be loading correctly since it is applied to the lines fine right?
So I thought the problem was with the texture coordinates which I was initially putting into an array as the floor geometry was being created in a loop, and then applying the texture coordinates at the end using setTextureCoordinates. As can be seen from my source, I commented this out and tried a more basic approach, and still no result.
So why won't it work with QuadArray? I know this might seem like a very basic and stupid question but I'm still learning and have no idea where to go from here!
Thanks muchly for any help
