    Third Person Camera for a kart game?

    Heya, I'm working on a kart game for a game jam this weekend. I've set up the controls for it semi-decently, but I don't quite know how I would set up the camera. I want it to work pretty simply, just follow behind the kart, always facing the kart's back.

    Sorry there isn't an attachment of the MFA, the attachment uploader isn't working for me at the moment. I'll post it here if it starts working again.

    Tell the Camera to always Target X,Y,Z of the Kart. Set the Parent Node of the Camera to the Fixed Value of the Go Kart. Be sure to offset the X,Y,Z positions of the camera according to preference. The camera will now move with the kart.

    Thanks, it's sort of working now. It seems to work when the object is rotating, but it stops when it's only being moved with the Firefly Movement object. Any idea why that is?

    worst case scenario would be to always position the camera using trig to the kart

    @danjo I was actually going to show you my not-working trig, but I instead fixed the issue »\_(ツ)_/»

    Here's what I have now: Capturzzzzzzzzzze.PNG

    It views the object from the side instead of the back, but I think I'll be able to fix that. So, my issue is pretty much solved!


    Still, if anyone knows why the parenting only worked when the object was rotating, I'd like to know why. I might need that info down the road.
