Does anyone know if its possible to do a 3D view that when u move the mouse lets u free look around a locked object...

So the camera constantly points at the object, and the camera (depending on movement of mouse) then moves around (in a spherecle area)...

I know how to move a camera, and I know how to make it point at the object, but I can't figure out how to make the camera move round it...

for example if it was only with the horizontal axis - it'd just move around in 1 circle (as if its orbiting it)...

Does anyone know how to do this and more importantly do it in the vert and horizontal axis with mouse

Cheers,

Paul J

Thanks for your quick reply, I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

I might of been able to do this if I hadn't of deleted a example with moons rotating around planets

as I would of basically made the camera the moon... and gone from there

Thanks again.

If patch3 has fixxed the Mouse bugs, checkout RTS Camera Code within the Snippets forum. Might be a few pages back...
Simply use the Base XYZ to the Planets

I'll code up an example if you can't find it in Standard DB and you can port from that.
