RE: 3rd Person Camera

Where did you get the idea that you can have a 3rd person camera in Overture?

RE: 3rd Person Camera

3rd person? Like...seeing your character move or something? Of course this is not possible because your character does not exist. Normally it is just a hand or something. Not possible...

It's not possible.
As stated before, the character you're playing with (Phillip), does not exist in the game.
And even if you'd somehow manage to get the third person to work, you'd only see a floating pick axe and a beef jerky.

from my Brain ^^

I think it's possible

instead of the "hands" attached to the camera, I think we can load a mesh and use the ends of the skeleton (arms) and use it for actions. And the camera must follow this mesh

RE: 3rd Person Camera

If you want to rework the game code to support it, it should be doable.. But there's a lot of code you'll have to add in, as the feature was plain never written in.

Developing away on one of
Multiple Macs running 10.6, 10.7, 10.8, and 10.9.
Linux, 8-core AMD, 8GB RAM, Fedora 18, nVidia 450 1GB

It's player itself, there is no other camera settings in either HPL1 or HPL2.
I hope HPL3 will have this, though.
