My newest book, XNA 4 3D Game Development by Example : Beginners Guide is now available from Packt Publishing or on Amazon.



This book follows the same style as my previous books on 2D game development with XNA, bringing three different 3D games to life. I cover items such as:



- The basic concepts behind 3D graphics and game design

- Generating geometry with triangles

- Converting height map images into terrain

- An introduction to HLSL, including writing shaders that handle lighting and multi-texturing

- Building a 2D button-based interface to overlay on your 3D action

- Implementing skyboxes for full 3D backgrounds



And many, many more topics.

Loved the 2d book, just bought the 3d book for myself for Christmas. Oh! It's just what I wanted! Really looking forward to the section on height maps.
