Usage

    GeometrySampling value

Description

This command sets the geometry sampling type of the current material. Valid geometry sampling types are solid, wireframe, and pointcloud. However, Activeworlds v3.0+ no longer supports "pointcloud" geometry sampling. The default is solid.

Note: contrary to popular belief, wireframe objects do not usually render any faster than solid objects. In fact, they often render slower!

Arguments

value is either solid or wireframe, all other values will be ignored.

Example

GeometrySampling wireframe

This following will produce a panel like wiremesh model.

ModelBegin
 ClumpBegin
   Color 1 0 0
   Surface 1 1 1
   GeometrySampling wireframe
   AddMaterialMode Double
   Vertex -.2 0 0 UV 0 1
   Vertex -.2 .4 0 UV 0 0
   Vertex .2 0 0 UV 1 1
   Vertex .2 .4 0 UV 1 0
   Quad 2 1 3 4
 ClumpEnd
ModelEnd

Note that the color is bright red and it is viewable from both sides.
