What Is Metaverse

Metaverse is now only a planet simulator. The program is made up, from the architetturale point of view, of various sections and wants to be, like it has been for the authors of the project, a school (without pretensions) and an arena for who wants to learn the 3D programming.

The arguments in the project section will be oriented to the step-by-step guide that the authors made in the construction of the project.

In particular, the demanded knowledge for you is:

Basic C/C++ Programming (without use of template, the used extension of C is limited to the the mechanisms of classes creation and the inheritance).

Visual C++ (min. 5.0 version)

DirectX 8.0 SDK (Available free at
