[done] give setCameraPosition a faction attribute
« on: 10 October 2012, 16:32:27 »
i know i'm quite demanding atm, but i'm quite exited that we'll have network scenarios soon in our stable  :)

this time i'd like to ask if the setCameraPosition can get a faction attribute so it does not move everyones (or one?) camera to the same spot.
i guess we need a new function like setCameraPositionForFaction

i really like to use the camera to give the player some orientation so he knows somehow what to do etc. of course, faction specific messages would be nice, too, but i give the camera priority

These lua functions already exist for network scenarios:

networkShowMessageForFaction(string text, string header,int factionIndex)
networkShowMessageForTeam(string text, string header,int teamIndex)

Thanks

Hmm, those Lua functions do not seem to be related to what Treba is asking for, am I misunderstanding something?

Maybe Softcoder just mentioned these existing network scenario functions because they are also faction / team specific and can serve as a template to create the new functionality Treba requests.

thanks. also for the hint to the network messages.
we definitely have to update the wiki on all the new lua stuff when the release is done.
