We do need to actually set the offset positions that we calculate in a nested for-loop before we enter the game loop: glm:vec2 translations100; int index 0; float offset.1f; for(int y -10; y 10; y 2) for(int x -10; x 10; x 2) glm:vec2.Perhaps the first virtual world to use instances was the mmorpg The Realm Online, launched in 1996.The result is a transformation matrix that transforms each asteroid somewhere around the planet while also giving it a more natural and unique look compared to other asteroids.
