Forward/Backward to move
Left/Right to turn
z+x at the same time to reset position

This is just a demonstration of a way to move the have the camera stay fixed to a character while the environment moves around it.

There are a few issues with this implementation. Y co-ords have to be subtracted instead of added, this arose because I imagined forwards being positive and could not fix this easily by the time I realized what I did. Also, all horizontal surfaces become full of holes at any non-cardinal direction. Collisions also suffer from issues and it is possible to glitch entirely through a wall and become stuck (the reason there is a reset position option).

Currently, everything must be affixed to a grid system as attempting to render anything more than slightly out of sight the screen results in severe graphical errors. It should be possible to create a system using distance from the center of view, but I imagine it would become draining to do that for a large number of entities. Anything large enough to extend from the center of view to the glitch distance is well beyond what this is capable of.

Woah this is mighty neat.

Ever since lua scripting was added I've been waiting for more things like this to pop up.

Unfortunate with the holes and stuff, sorry I don't know more about Lua to help you out. Zep mentioned something about changes to the drawing system in version 0.3.5c maybe that means pre-built functions for polygonal drawing, no guarantees though, it might just be wishful thinking.

I would definitely like to see progress on this.
