comment How do I pick correct tile in isometric 3D map?
But for picking the correct 3D tile would it be best to use a coloured primitive underneath the map of tiles to find the correct tile? Or am I just going in completely the wrong direction.

I have probably gone ahead of myself asking this question as I haven't built anything solid in 3D yet and I have only just started with 3D. I have a 2D project at the moment which is a multidimensional array of sprites (tiles drawn on them) they are drawn so they represent a map of tiles. I have the world coordinates which are translated from the screen coordinates. To pick the correct 2D tile I use a color map sprite underneath the map of tile sprites. With 3D I image that I can use 3D primitives instead of sprites.

Nothing in 3D at the moment, I was just trying to find subjects on it, I haven't had much luck finding examples on the internet. I have used the 2D version with color maps, but I want to convert my project into 3D.
