Hi, i want to make a camera system like in Ryoko td or Warlock were players just type in -camera X and then the camera zooms out to that range. Also i want the camera to reset itself to that postion until the player choose to change distance.

This is what I use in my TD.. It doesnt reset automatically, but the camera zooms out to the entered value.

Trigger:
  • Camera
    • Events
      • Player - Player 1 (Red) types a chat message containing -zoom as A substring
      • Player - Player 2 (Blue) types a chat message containing -zoom as A substring
      • Player - Player 3 (Teal) types a chat message containing -zoom as A substring
      • Player - Player 4 (Purple) types a chat message containing -zoom as A substring
      • Player - Player 5 (Yellow) types a chat message containing -zoom as A substring
      • Player - Player 6 (Orange) types a chat message containing -zoom as A substring
      • Player - Player 7 (Green) types a chat message containing -zoom as A substring
      • Player - Player 8 (Pink) types a chat message containing -zoom as A substring
    • Conditions
      • (Substring((Entered chat string), 1, 6)) Equal to -zoom
    • Actions
      • Camera - Set (Triggering player)'s camera Distance to target to (Real((Substring((Entered chat string), 7, (Length of (Entered chat string)))))) over 2.00 seconds
      • Game - Display to (Player group((Triggering player))) the text: (Camera Distance Set To: + (Substring((Entered chat string), 7, (Length of (Entered chat string)))))


note there is a white space after -zoom, like this " " <-- inbetween the "" marks.

i have a question if it is alright. Is there any way i can detect if the other substring is between 750 and 2500. So if i write under 750 f.ex. -zoom 500 it will turn to 750 and if you type over it will turn to 2500.

E: if you want you can do it in jass. (im learning it now =))
