Add individual cameras

Post by Odex64 » Sat Feb 27, 2021 12:09 pm

I'm aware the game's not maintained as before and we hardly ever get updates just for bug fixes, however we (map makers) would appreciate a last new feature.. individual cameras. We could make some special maps & gamemodes which require a camera for each player, plus it'd be really useful for big maps and it could fix that usual camera flickering, and might increase SFD's lifespan a bit more.. who knows.

I also got Gurt's post about individual cameras:

By default the camera will always try to focus yourself and any other players.
We have already adjusted a few things to the camera we have noticed ourselves.

As we prioritize local multiplayer individual cameras on the client-side will not be a thing (we don't intend to create split-screen either). We have a certain vision for the game and in that vision we don't need split-screens and client-side only cameras (similar to how SF didn't have split-screen). If it ever will be implemented it will be in a post-launch update dedicated for map-makers I guess if we have inspiration for it.
If you guys ever consider this idea, you could add each player's camera in map editor (similar to a dynamic camera, but you can set the boundaries), plus some methods to change back the camera type or edit the boundaries in-game, triggers are optional.

It would be really cool to have split cameras, I agree with you. Could help to make servers like Hardcore implement more complex tactics in which you choose to be aware of only the immediate room you're in, even if some other battle is taken place in other part of the map with some other players. It could be cool.

Let's hope the devs still have the time and motivation to implement this...

Of course I don't think something like that would be good for official maps, as that's against the vision of the game itself, but for map makers, that would be an amazing feature. Individual cameras would give map makers a lot more abilities for creating custom maps and gamemodes, I already have a few ideas myself that aren't really possible without this feature existing.

I'd file this under "don't count on it". We're not actively working on SFD anymore, and individual cameras is not a trivial thing to implement.
