I just wanted to first thank you guys for creating jME, it's fantastic. I've had a pretty good experience using it to create basic things in clojure (a new dynamic language (a lisp) for the JVM clojure.org).
My objective is to render as efficiently as possible a network of selectable points and lines where the points have associated text labels. I originally did this with spheres, cylinders, and 3DText (probably ranks pretty low on the efficiency scale). I moved to using boxes and SharedMesh and that gave a boost. I was planning on using geometryinstancing or simply using the Point and Line classes.
Can this be done with geometryinstancing? In particular, can geometryinstances be selected with a mouse?
Can individual points in a Point object be selected? (lines in a Line object?)
Is the most efficient way to display text to render on a quad like in this post? (http://www.jmonkeyengine.com/jmeforum/index.php?topic=6485.0)
Is there some other option that's better than these?
