Building a maze / dungeon

I’m building a maze / dungeon using the bricks and the wall that was in the example. I can make the wall longer and higher but it falls into pieces. Is is better to model a maze / labyrinth from a .scene file instead? If I can make it with the example component, what should be done to make the wall stand and not fall?

[java] public void initWall() {

float startpt = bLength / 4;

float height = 0;

for (int j = 0; j < 30; j++) {

for (int i = 0; i < 4; i++) {

Vector3f vt = new Vector3f(i * bLength * 2 + startpt, bHeight + height, 0);



startpt = -startpt;

height += 2 * bHeight;


} /** Initialize the materials used in this scene. */

public void initMaterials() {

mat = new Material(assetManager, “Common/MatDefs/Misc/Unshaded.j3md”);

wall_mat = new Material(assetManager,


TextureKey key = new TextureKey(



Texture tex = assetManager.loadTexture(key);

wall_mat.setTexture(“ColorMap”, tex);

mat.setTexture(“ColorMap”, tex);

stone_mat = new Material(assetManager,


TextureKey key2 = new TextureKey(“Textures/Terrain/Rock/Rock.PNG”);


Texture tex2 = assetManager.loadTexture(key2);

stone_mat.setTexture(“ColorMap”, tex2);

floor_mat = new Material(assetManager,


TextureKey key3 = new TextureKey(“Textures/Terrain/Pond/Pond.jpg”);


Texture tex3 = assetManager.loadTexture(key3);


floor_mat.setTexture(“ColorMap”, tex3);

} public void addBrick(Vector3f ori) {

Geometry reBoxg = new Geometry(“brick”, brick);



// for geometry with sphere mesh the physics system automatically uses a

// sphere collision shape

reBoxg.addControl(new RigidBodyControl(1.5f));






That way is not going to work very well, as you will have so many objects in your scene, and you dont need them, if all you want is a wall with a brick texture. You can probably use a heightmap for this. Or create a flat plane in blender for your maze and extrude it up.

your bug is that you use physics, simple dont use physics if you want you walls to be static.

I think “Hello Physics” or “Hello Collision” gives exactly this example, of a crumbling building and explicitly says that you should not build your whole world from physics enabled objects…

Thank you for the answers. I’ll wait with the problem how to generate a random maze and I can use a static scene instead that is pre-rendered. I can use a .scene instead and I am now practicing on the quake scene but I can’t the character to walk properly so please so my other question where I want to learn how to enable third person walk for the ninja character:

Many thanks!
