3rd person view

by BlockMen » Post

Hello everyone,
here my first try to add a 3rd person view to Minetest.

Its based on PilzAdams changes to see the own player when looking down, see this post.

Update: viewtopic.php?id=9041

Awesome!

If you accept a little constructive criticism (I know this is WIP), I think it would be better if the pivot for pitch is the player as with the yaw. (Sorry if I'm unclear; I'm not very much into 3D jargon).

Anyway, I hope this can be merged some day!

Just make sure that it is better than what is in Minecraft. Also, make sure that in first person the player can see his/her own player model's body when looking down. That gives the impression that he/she is more than just a floating camera.

You can not see the cross hair, so you need to move the player to the left, relative to the camera. Like in GTA.

I like this but I think that when you should look down your view should have the middle or focus on the head. Though great job maybe with refinement it could be added to minetest.

I would like it to have a little '3rd person shooter' aspect to it, but great job anyway !

this is great, i hope this manage to get into the main engine.!

I can imagine the possibilities.

Maybe add support for LUA for the control of camera position:

1st person mode (with o without body)
like here: viewtopic.php?pid=80871#p80871

or:

3rd Person Mode (over the shoulder, over the head, etc)

OR

Detached Camera (the player controls camera, but not the character in game)

Static Camera (the player controls the character, but camera stay in a fixed place)

(this last two are good if you want to make a movie o something like)

thanks PilzAdams and BlockMen.

And, if this was implemented in the game, it should have a tick box like for Creative.

No, it should have some hotkey. Possibly f6, or something like that.

This is amazing! Next step would be to move the view around or add a skin function.
Working on a sub-game; mostly based texture packs, adventure and soon chemistry...

Do you mean skinning you own player for just you to see or could people on a server all have different skins?

You don't plan to add this to the base game?

I meant the code. The only reason I would think if he doesn't show the code is if he is still working on it.

I lost interest in Minetest for a couple of years and... I am still not really paying much attention. I rarely browse these forums anymore but it's nice to see old faces.

All it needs is front and back view,
And z to turn your head,
Or..... Maybe not,
But you could use f5 like in minecraft for front and back,
The order could be: 1st person, 3rd person back, 3rd person front,
but i still want a non-finished version, with just a keybind that you cant set,
