Mark says it all. I was going to say much the same, but got distracted working on a test.
Attached vid test asks the viewers to guess how many vehicles were set, and how many "as seen by" statements were invoked.

Watch carefully: requires a click and open to view the .wmf file.

Post your Guesses.

Will post the Alice3 proggie later :-)

@MrMoke: Very funny video. I just noticed that you never seem to post your actual code, just a video. Is there a specific reason for this? Also, where did you get those characters? Did you model them yourself?

@chickentree: You make a good point, although that whole skateboard thing would be funny if you forgot to change the vehicle!

Also, thanks for correcting me on this, both of you!

And have you ever tried telling an object to turn to face one of it's subobjects? It just spins around infinitely!

I don't normally post the code because I tend to use them in lessons after I cobble them together, or submit them to the Alice Team for Debugging when something seems broken. Too easy for someone to copy and say "Hey Teacher, Look what I did!".

Giving someone the answer doesn't encourage them to use their brains.

Had a few minutes, so I updated the video I posted earlier. It's in the post above now.

Setting the camera's vehicle to the object you want to track is good if you want to mimic the way most first person and third person shooter games behave. If you want the camera to behave more like it's being carried by a human camera operator following your subject, take a look at how the Flight Simulator world in the Examples section of Alice 2 uses a simple distance check to keep the camera pointed at its target.
