first I’m not programmer, I’ve been using a popular game for some time and I think it would make a great medium for machinima. Problem is that it’s a top down view startegy game and it doesn’t give control of the camera other than pan map with arrow keys, drag with left mouse and zoom on cursor with mouse wheel.
I’ve got the demo of Torque 3D and I found the documentation on creating different camera modes but I don’t want to spend hours to find out in the end that I can’t do it.
Ideally I’d like a console command to switch between the default camera mode and the machinima one. The machinima one should focus on the centre of the map OR (toggle) on a selected unit and basically let me rotate the map like a sphere but never get below it or alter its horizontality. (hope you get the picture)
So can anyone write me the code to add ?
EDIT: I just learned that it uses Torque 2D but renders things in 3D.
