I need to map texture to shape. Texture:

Example texture in diamond shape

This is a example of shapes I need to map texture to:

Mesh example

Notice that each piece in mesh has exactly 4 point to map texture. Logic is pretty straight forward: Top center edge to top in mesh etc.

I found some methods on Graphics object like texture(...) however these methods cannot handle diamond texture properly..?

I found this method:

ShapeRenderer.texture(shape, image, generator)

Where generator is:


However I don't understand How It can be used to map the image to the shape.

How to use it? Is there other way?

I didn't found an API for this in Slick library. So I wrote a class which does it for me (groovy code):

class Stretched {

    Shape shape
    Image image

    Stretched(Shape shape, Image image) {
        this.shape = shape
        this.image = image

    void render() {

        SGL GL = Renderer.get()


        GL.glTexCoord2f(0.5f, 0f)
        GL.glVertex2f(shape.points[0], shape.points[1])

        GL.glTexCoord2f(1f, 0.5f)
        GL.glVertex2f(shape.points[2], shape.points[3])

        GL.glTexCoord2f(0.5f, 1f)
        GL.glVertex2f(shape.points[4], shape.points[5])

        GL.glTexCoord2f(0f, 0.5f)
        GL.glVertex2f(shape.points[6], shape.points[7])


This takes a Shape (polygon w/ 4 vertexes) and map diamond texture to it.
