The following snippet contains an elementary framework for creating a DirectX 11 program. It also demonstrates how to make objects fall from the sky using the central processing unit, CPU, of your computer. Falling objects in 3D games could include snow, rain, meteors and airstrike projectiles.

While CPU animated game elements suffice for many applications, it is recommended to use a physics plugin or shader to ensure your game is using the correct hardware dedicated for the purpose of forcing objects around.

Please insert if you do not wish to include the plugin supplied constants file.

The candid idea surrounding this simplistic snippet and my endeavours in this context is for me to learn and share my learning of how to initialize the plugin, and establish an easy to extend program loop in order to produce more complex snippets in future. You are free to use my examples freely in your works but are to adhere to the terms and recommendations of the author of the plugin, whose suggestions are advised to be held as the superlative source.

Please find the prerequisites and more information about the forthcoming Ziggurat plugin in the WIP board; you may download the latest demo version of the plugin freely which contains everything you need to get started, including a collection of example programs supplied by Rudolpho.[i]
