4. On Your Own!

Using what you have learned, try to do the following:

  • Give the player a run key that they need to hold down in order to increase a Pawn's movement speed.
  • Experiment with different ways to mix automatic and input-driven camera movement. This is a very deep area of game development with a lot of room to explore!
  • Increase, decrease, or remove the lag from your Spring Component to get a better understanding of how much lag can affect your camera's overall feel.
  • Implement a small amount of periodic motion, possibly slightly randomized or using a Curve asset, to add a "handheld feel" to your camera.
  • Give your Camera some amount of automatic turning, so that the camera gradually gets behind the moving player object and faces the direction that the player is moving.
