Detailed Description

The iSector interface is used to work with "sectors".

A "sector" is an empty region of space that can contain other objects (mesh objects). A sector itself does not represent geometry but only contains other geometry. A sector does contain lights though. The sector is the basic building block for any Crystal Space level. A level can be made from one or more sectors. Using the thing mesh object one can use portals to connect multiple sectors.

Member Function Documentation

virtual void iSector::AddLightVisibleCallback ( iLightVisibleCallback cb  )  [pure virtual]

Add a callback that is called whenever a light is visible.

This only works if SetLightCulling() is enabled.

virtual void iSector::AddSectorMeshCallback ( iSectorMeshCallback cb  )  [pure virtual]

Add a mesh callback.

This will call IncRef() on the callback So make sure you call DecRef() to release your own reference.

virtual void iSector::CalculateSectorBBox ( csBox3 bbox,
bool  do_meshes 
) const [pure virtual]

Calculate the bounding box of all objects in this sector.

This function is not very efficient as it will traverse all objects in the sector one by one and compute a bounding box from that.

virtual void iSector::CheckFrustum ( iFrustumView lview  )  [pure virtual]

Check visibility in a frustum way for all things and polygons in this sector and possibly traverse through portals to other sectors.

virtual iMeshGenerator* iSector::CreateMeshGenerator ( const char *  name  )  [pure virtual]

Create a mesh generator.

virtual void iSector::DecRecLevel (  )  [pure virtual]

Remove one draw recursion level.

virtual void iSector::DisableFog (  )  [pure virtual]

Disable fog in this sector.

virtual void iSector::Draw ( iRenderView rview  )  [pure virtual]

Draw the sector with the given render view.

virtual iSector* iSector::FollowSegment ( csReversibleTransform t,
csVector3 new_position,
bool &  mirror,
bool  only_portals = false 
) [pure virtual]

Follow a segment starting at this sector.

If the segment intersects with a polygon it will stop there unless the polygon is a portal in which case it will recursively go to that sector (possibly applying warping transformations) and continue there.

This routine will modify all the given parameters to reflect space warping. These should be used as the new camera transformation when you decide to really go to the new position.

This function returns the resulting sector and new_position will be set to the last position that you can go to before hitting a wall.

If only_portals is true then only portals will be checked. This means that intersection with normal polygons is not checked. This is a lot faster but it does mean that you need to use another collision detection system to test with walls.

virtual csColor iSector::GetDynamicAmbientLight (  )  const [pure virtual]

Get the last set dynamic ambient light for this sector.

virtual uint iSector::GetDynamicAmbientVersion (  )  const [pure virtual]

Get the version number of the dynamic ambient color.

This number is increased whenever dynamic ambient changes.

virtual const csFog& iSector::GetFog (  )  const [pure virtual]

Return the fog structure (even if fog is disabled).

virtual iLightList* iSector::GetLights (  )  [pure virtual]

Get the list of static and pseudo-dynamic lights in this sector.

virtual iMeshList* iSector::GetMeshes (  )  [pure virtual]

Get the list of meshes in this sector.

virtual iMeshGenerator* iSector::GetMeshGenerator ( size_t  idx  )  [pure virtual]

Get the specific mesh generator.

virtual iMeshGenerator* iSector::GetMeshGeneratorByName ( const char *  name  )  [pure virtual]

Get the specific mesh generator by name.

virtual size_t iSector::GetMeshGeneratorCount (  )  const [pure virtual]

Get the number of mesh generators.

virtual const csSet<csPtrKey<iMeshWrapper> >& iSector::GetPortalMeshes (  )  const [pure virtual]

Get the set of meshes containing portals that leave from this sector.

Note that portals are uni-directional. The portals represented by this list are portals that are on some mesh object that is actually located in this sector.

virtual int iSector::GetRecLevel (  )  const [pure virtual]

Get the current draw recursion level.

virtual iRenderLoop* iSector::GetRenderLoop (  )  [pure virtual]

Get the renderloop for this sector.

If this returns 0 then it means there is no specific renderloop for this sector. In that case the default renderloop in the engine will be used.

virtual iSectorCallback* iSector::GetSectorCallback ( int  idx  )  const [pure virtual]

Get the specified sector callback.

virtual int iSector::GetSectorCallbackCount (  )  const [pure virtual]

Get the number of sector callbacks.

virtual iShaderVariableContext* iSector::GetSVContext (  )  [pure virtual]

Get the shader variable context for this sector.

virtual iVisibilityCuller* iSector::GetVisibilityCuller (  )  [pure virtual]

Get the visibility culler that is used for this sector.

If there is no culler yet a culler of type 'crystalspace.culling.frustvis' will be created and used for this sector.

virtual csRenderMeshList* iSector::GetVisibleMeshes ( iRenderView  )  [pure virtual]

Get a set of visible meshes for given camera.

These will be cached for a given frame and camera, but if the cached result isn't enough it will be reculled. The returned pointer is valid as long as the sector exists (the sector will delete it)

virtual bool iSector::HasFog (  )  const [pure virtual]

Has this sector fog?

virtual csSectorHitBeamResult iSector::HitBeam ( const csVector3 start,
const csVector3 end,
bool  accurate = false 
) [pure virtual]

Follow a beam from start to end and return the first object that is hit.

In case it is a thing the polygon_idx field will be filled with the indices of the polygon that was hit. If polygon_idx is null then the polygon will not be filled in. This function doesn't support portals.

csSectorHitBeamResult

virtual iMeshWrapper* iSector::HitBeam ( const csVector3 start,
const csVector3 end,
csVector3 intersect,
int *  polygon_idx,
bool  accurate = false 
) [pure virtual]

Follow a beam from start to end and return the first object that is hit.

In case it is a thing the polygon_idx field will be filled with the indices of the polygon that was hit. If polygon_idx is null then the polygon will not be filled in. This function doesn't support portals.

Deprecated:
Use the csSectorHitBeamResult version instead

virtual csSectorHitBeamResult iSector::HitBeamPortals ( const csVector3 start,
const csVector3 end 
) [pure virtual]

Follow a beam from start to end and return the first polygon that is hit.

This function correctly traverse portals and space warping portals. Normally the sector you call this on should be the sector containing the 'start' point. 'isect' will be the intersection point if a polygon is returned. This function returns -1 if no polygon was hit or the polygon index otherwise.

csSectorHitBeamResult

virtual iMeshWrapper* iSector::HitBeamPortals ( const csVector3 start,
const csVector3 end,
csVector3 isect,
int *  polygon_idx,
iSector **  final_sector = 0 
) [pure virtual]

Follow a beam from start to end and return the first polygon that is hit.

This function correctly traverse portals and space warping portals. Normally the sector you call this on should be the sector containing the 'start' point. 'isect' will be the intersection point if a polygon is returned. This function returns -1 if no polygon was hit or the polygon index otherwise.

Deprecated:
Use the csSectorHitBeamResult version instead

virtual void iSector::IncRecLevel (  )  [pure virtual]

const csColor color 
) [pure virtual]

Fill the fog structure with the given values.

virtual void iSector::SetLightCulling ( bool  enable  )  [pure virtual]

Set/reset culling objects for all lights in the sector.

This can be used for hardware accelerated lighting techniques that want to know what lights (influence object) are visible for camera. With this enabled every light will be registered to the culler of this sector and a callback (see AddLightVisibleCallback) will be called.

virtual void iSector::SetRenderLoop ( iRenderLoop rl  )  [pure virtual]

Set the renderloop to use for this sector.

If this is not set then the default engine renderloop will be used.

virtual void iSector::SetSectorCallback ( iSectorCallback cb  )  [pure virtual]

This will call IncRef() on the callback So make sure you call DecRef() to release your own reference.

virtual bool iSector::SetVisibilityCullerPlugin ( const char *  name,
iDocumentNode culler_params = 0 
) [pure virtual]

Use the specified plugin as the visibility culler for this sector.

Returns false if the culler could not be loaded for some reason. The optional culler parameters will be given to the new visibility culler.

virtual void iSector::ShineLights ( iMeshWrapper  )  [pure virtual]

Version of ShineLights() which only affects one mesh object.

virtual void iSector::ShineLights (  )  [pure virtual]

Calculate lighting for all objects in this sector.

virtual void iSector::UnlinkObjects (  )  [pure virtual]

Unlink all mesh objects from this sector.

This will not remove the mesh objects but simply unlink them so that they are no longer part of this sector. This happens automatically when the sector is removed but you can force it by calling this function here.
