Hey, could someone help me create a trigger that will get the height of the unit, lock the camera to them, etc. Because, right now i have a map with very low, up to very high height, and whenever i climb up the ladder, the camera is wayyyy too low, thank you

JASS:
function SetCameraFieldForPlayer (player whichPlayer, camerafield whichField, real value, real duration) returns nothing
the "camera field" you want is CAMERA_FIELD_ZOFFSET, and value is the height of your camera.. duration being how long it takes to pan to that height.

or..

  • Camera - Set Player 1 (Red)'s camera Far Z to X over 0.00 seconds
hope this helps.
 
Nightmare-, get the action Maximilianx and Berbanog gave you. In the place of Far Z/Height Offset respectively, you will get other options as well, e.g. Angle of Attack. All these fix your camera standard settings, the way you want them set up.
Now, there is a Jass function, that restores the camera, if the units is moving on high-leveled grounds, e.g. a big hill. To fix the camera up in this case, do this:
  • Set Loc1 = (Position of (your unit here))
  • Custom script: set udg_Z_Camera = GetLocationZ(udg_Loc1)
  • Camera - Set (Owner of (Your unit here))'s camera Height Offset to ((Z_Camera) + 100)
  • Custom script: call RemoveLocation (udg_Loc1)
The "100" value above is a prefix height offset you will decide how much it will be.

In case you seek for flying height modifications, do this:
  • Camera - Set (Owner of (Your unit here))'s camera Height Offset to ((Flying height of (Your unit here)) + 100)
"100" has the same role as above; it can be any number you want.

If it has to do with destructibles, I think the Occlusion Height is what you want (but I really am not sure).

Alright, so I set up the trigger like Pharaoh told me. Although whenever I try to start the game, I get a compile error for

Custom Script: set udg_Z_Camera = GetLocationZ(udg_Loc1)

and I have the time set to every .05 seconds of game
Is there anything I am doing wrong?
Thanks!

  • Camera Fix
    • Events
      • Time - Every 0.05 seconds of game time
    • Conditions
    • Actions
      • Set Loc1 = (Position of Blood Mage 0015 <gen>)
      • Custom script: set udg_Z_Camera = GetLocationZ(udg_Loc1)
      • Camera - Set (Owner of Blood Mage 0015 <gen>)'s camera Height Offset to ((Height Offset of Z_Camera) + 100.00) over 0.00 seconds
      • Custom script: call RemoveLocation (udg_Loc1)
So, some things I might have done wrong is in
Camera - Set (Owner of Blood Mage 0015 <gen>)'s camera Height Offset to ((Height Offset of Z_Camera) + 100.00) over 0.00 seconds
there is 2 height offsets
and the Z_Camera is a Camera Object variable and the Loc1 is a point variable, is that right?
