Well, I got band-selection working in Planitia last night. For the record, that’s where you select multiple units by dragging the mouse to form a box around them. So I really should be posting an update.
But I’m not.
Because I have yet to figure out how to actually draw the box using D3D. I figured out how to do billboarded, “fake 2D with 3D” stuff in OpenGL, but haven’t figured out how to do it in D3D yet. I spent as much time trying and failing to draw the box as I did debugging my band selection code. It’s quite frustrating.
Hopefully I’ll fix it and be able to upload an example video tonight.
Next: Now that all the controls are in, I can finally implement some combat!
