Question Moving the Camera with Keyboard Controls - 05-26-2010, 08:33 AM

Hi All,

I am brand new to Alice, and am trying to figure out how to navigate through an Alice world using keyboard controls. Basically, I just want the keyboard controls to work as if a person were walking through the world, so keeping the y axis the same level, while moving the x and z axes. When I use the method "Let [mouse] move Camera", navigation seems to do this. BUT when I use "Let [keyboard controls] move Camera," the camera seems more unrestricted; that is, it the camera moves at weird angles and can go below the world's ground. Is there a way to make the keyboard controls maintain the y axis, while moving the x and z?

Also, again, I'm new, and was wondering if there is a way to see the actual code behind the "mouse move camera" method? So I might could figure these things out myself.

Thank you in advance! I've been very impressed with Alice so far!

-Anne

P.S. I didn't post my code because its literally just the one, built-in method on the amusement park world.
