However, before we start replacing the instances of BasicEffect assigned to our models, we need to extract some useful information from them, such as which texture and color to use for each ModelMeshPart. Tag = tag; } } This function will be called along with buildBoundingSphere() in the constructor: ... buildBoundingSphere(); generateTags(); ... Notice that the MeshTag class has a CachedEffect variable that is not currently used. We will use this value as a location to store a reference to an effect that we want to be able to restore to the ModelMeshPart on demand.

You'll notice that the example uses the ChaseCamera to follow the spaceship and uses two models to represent the ground and spaceship. 1. One, GraphicsDevice)); camera = new ChaseCamera(new Vector3(0, 400, 1500), new Vector3(0, 200, 0), new Vector3(0, 0, 0), GraphicsDevice); 2. TotalMilliseconds * 4; } 3. Update(); } 4. And with that, we're finished! " A graphics profile is a set of features that are guaranteed to work on a certain machine, as long as the machine meets all of the requirements of that graphics profile.

The view matrix is then calculated as usual based on those values.
