Ok I got the sphere working, but I have some problems.
I really need a geosphere instead of a mathematical sphere. The mathematical sphere crunches my universe backdrop at the poles and looks ugly.
Here is a screenshot of what I have so far.
The mouse works as well and I think I've got the acceleration just about perfect. It really acts as though you are floating in space.
My project is far too large to attach here. I will give out demos to those who have me on msn, however or those who PM me and would like to test it.
So far the zipped up exe and associated graphics are 1.29MB. Way above the board limit. I wish we could post larger files.
