A Little question from a newbie...

Hiya, I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to make a mesh? I started getting into python programming about a week ago, and I was wondering if anyone could give me a little guidance about the programming. I want to be able to make horses and humans by the time I become an intermediate. Sorry for any time answering these questions and many more to come,

creating meshes is not a part of coding, but rather modeling. You might ask this on the main Ogre forum dedicated to content creation:

To summarize, you need a modeling tool + exporter to Ogre's mesh format.

Oh, thank you very much. Your reply is much appreciated.

To shorten the loooooong search for a modeling program. Try blender http://www.blender.org. It is the most used opensource 3D-Tool and ogre has an well documented and functionig exporter to it.

Also, before starting programming in Python-ogre you should be used to Object-Oriented Programming.

My Tip. Buy a good Book (O'reilly has very good Books about python) and work through it.

believe me. i tried to start Pythopn Programming with Python-ogre and it can be very frustrating when you dont understand the basics.

I like this "online" book http://www.freenetpages.co.uk/hp/alan.gauld/ .. it could be a good starting point. You can choose from another 6 language translations and download the whole book in zip or pdf as well.

Hey thanks for that link! I don't need it personally, but I teach classes to people new to programming, so I'm always on the lookout for new resources that they might find useful.
