well I really don't know where to begin. I am pretty new to opengl ES. I understand that I am going to probably have to use triangle strips for most of sphere and triangle fans for the poles, but I really don't know where to start. How do I specify where the vertices should be in the sphere?
If you know of any good sphere tutorials. I would greatly appreciate it.
Of course it's your choice, but if I were new to OpenGL like you said you were, I would start off small, trying to understand and learn the basics, instead of looking for some ready made code to draw a sphere.
