Hello Guatam. Thank you for your reply. More specifically: I am developing a warcraft like game for fun. As in warcraft there will be a main viewport which contains most of the scene. It will show all the terain, characters, resources, etc. There will also be another viewport which has a map. The user can select different parts of the map and the main viewport will update accordingly. Then I also want a border that goes around both of these two viewports. This border will have selectable menu items like: build a structure, deploy troops, game menu. quit, etc.
My question was this; should this be done with multiple viewports or should I just use more than one window to display each part. How would you go about acomplishing this?
