New Trick Found!

Author File Description
nottud
File Details
Version: AoM: The Titans
This trick has been descovered by me was thinking how to make an RPG when the camera would follow your unit as you move it and that you would not be able to move your camera except if you move your unit.

But, Ive got the answer!

It uses a trigger called "camera cut protounit". This trigger can only be found by downloading the "some new triggers" file from the utlilty programs section.

Anyway, When you move your unit,the camera follows it! This is how to use the trigger:

Insert a new trigger, (on loop)
Put the conditions on always,
Put the effect as "camera cut protounit"
Put the name of the unit you want it to follow (don't have move than one of the type of unit you want it to follow or it will muck up!)

And thats it!

BEWARE!!! this trick doesn't work very well on multiplayer because it's a little choppy for some reason online.

This download as a template which uses this trick. Ive added affect pads and scenary to show you how effective the trick is. If you want, you can use this idear in your maps.

To install, extract the file into the scenario folder in age of mythology scenario folder.

Have fun using this trick and if there are any problems tell me!

(this trick may work smoother on more powerful computers but it should be smooth anyway)

It's something that can be done by anyone who knows how to work with triggers.

Additional Comments:
hey nottud, I don't mean to diminish the value of your work, but like I said: It's been done before (try Legacy -I think), and in any case it's in the snxt triggers by Reyk. You can do it by camera cut object/unit, you can do it while in cinematics, etc.
Sorry if you find this negative, I'm not putting down your work (hence the 3 rating), but it's just that I feel that you're not presenting any special new find.

regards and keep up the good work
