I'm trying to create a camera system in which the player's camera follows an averaged point between both the x and y positions of the player's hero and the player's mouse position. This will give more freedom to viewing the map around the player's character, but still limits them to viewing wherever they please, to give you an idea of what I want.

It's a simple concept, but the Worldeditor has no "X coordinate of mouse" function to choose from, which is pretty obismal.

Any ideas?

Well... there are 2 ways of tracking the mouse position of the player.

1. Make a dummy unit, select that unit, force-UI to cast spell, force player to click.
Target point of ability being cast = position of mouse.

2. Create trackables.
Make numberless trackables over the map and then you have a hover event and click event.
However this is very costly and will be glitchy.
