Do you mean, if he falls off a cliff, he will fall down rather than stay in the air?

If yes, then all you have to do is an infinite loop saying when the guy is a above the ground, he falls down.

I'm a web developer/ designer now.

Maybe set their vehicle to the ground. Or have them move up as they move down

I know what you mean, I have solved this problem in a few of my worlds before. Just create a cube and make it "move to" the camera. Then, make the camera vehicle to the cube. Now, for all of the methods that you made where the camera moves forward, backward, left or right, put the cube in place of the camera so the cube does all of those things. Make sure that the method where the camera looks up or down (if you have that) is the actual camera turning up or down and not the cube, every other movement though should be done by the cube.

If this is just a movie though and not a game (like if you don't even have methods for keyboard keys to move the camera), and your problem is just that the camera is positioned at an angle, you can fix it by just setting the point of view of the camera to the "world", and then move it back to the position you had it in before without messing up the angle like you did before.

Check out my best projects so far and please comment:
