A dummy player is a simple viewport into the world that has no physical properties and cannot collide with objects.
- The PlayerDummy class to manage the dummy player via API
As any transformation of a player forces it to recalculate its inner state (position, direction, angles, and so on), the up direction of the player's viewport may become "negative forward". And then transformation will be recalculated by using this direction, causing flip of the player's basis. To avoid such flipping, the theta and phi angles should be recalculated by using the current viewing orientation of the player.
Creating a Dummy Player#
To create a dummy player, do the following:
- On the Menu bar, choose Create -> Camera -> Dummy.
- Place the camera somewhere in the world and specify the required parameters via the Parameters window.
