chase_active 1: 3rd person view (and vehicles)

So, i finally came around to playing some Xonotic and you just gotta love that crabby Spiderbot jumping and walking. Big Grin (tZork's server)

This doesn't have to be solely for chase_active with vehicles, but i will just start that way.

i found "chase_up 10; chase_back 100" nice for normal player, but it doesn't work good with vehicles. So i thought to make binds, like this:

alias chase_player "chase_up 10; chase_back 100"
alias chase_spider "chase_up 20; chase_back 200"
alias chase_racer "chase_up 60; chase_back 160"
alias chase_raptor "chase_up 30; chase_back 200"
(needs adjustments)

bind chase_player x (well, this ain't done, yet)

So, to all who use 3rd person, it would be nice to read your thoughts. Smile

Okay, i've adjusted the settings and made binds.

alias chase_player "chase_up 10;chase_back 100"
alias chase_spider "chase_up 80; chase_back 350"
alias chase_racer "chase_up 60; chase_back 200"
alias chase_raptor "chase_up -200; chase_back 400"

bind x "chase_active 0"
bind c "chase_active 1" (a toggle would be better)
bind v "chase_player"
bind b "chase_spider"
bind n "chase_racer"
bind m "chase_raptor"

And this is how it looks in the game:

I never used the 3rd person view, but in these screenshots, the configurations seems okay =) (maybe a bit too far for the slider) => french webradio for rock alternative and metal =) => Freespace Open, a beautiful space simulator game

can you make it automatically switch between first and third person when you get into and out of a vehicle?

i can't, but maybe somebody else can! Big Grin (bad joke, sorry)

Well, that's one thing i hoped for. And automatically change the settings for the various vehicles. The usability may depend on taste and situation, but if we could decide on a configuration it could get included, perhaps.

i hardly know enough about binds.

It might not be automatically but you can try this script:

Just set in your first config you normal settings and on the second one set the third person view settings.

As an extra you can set a different 3rd person view on the third config.

Yes! Forseti! You're a lifesaver. Smile

I'm aware this is an old thread, but since it is referred from a recent discussion, I thought mentioning BlaXpirit's classic script tutorial might be useful for somebody who wants to make a toggleable binding.
