Hey all, new here.
I just asked a question on the stackoverflow forums here Link to post
What I am trying to do is texture my 3D triangle based terrain (using GL_TRIANGLE_STRIP) with different textures depending on a multitude of things such as height (a snowy texture), steepness (rocky texture) or flat (grass texture).
I started by trying to use shaders but as they are not required for this project (it's part of an assignment) and since I didn't know much about them I decided to go with more of a fixed pipeline solution. I first tried using multiTexCoords but found they didn't work the way I wanted so I ended up moving all my textures into one single texture.png and then using texCoords to try and place the correct S, T coords onto the terrain.
Currently my code is as such:
with the textures being bound with a Texture java utils object.
The current code makes my terrain display as such: Stripy Texture
and Stripy Texture 2
What I want is to shift the S and T coords so that I can easily have the entire terrain be only the grass section of the .png file, or only snow, or only rocky. From there I could easily have different parts of the terrain use different S and T coords of the texture object.
