What Type of Camera for Civ4 Type Game?

I'm building a simple Master of Orion type TBS game. But I would like the camera to function like in Civ4. That is, move the mouse to the left, the scene moves to the right, move the mouse up, and the scene scrolls down. Scrolling the mouse roller will zoom in and out a la Civ4.

Any ideas what kind of camera to use?

Thanks in advance.


look strategic handler…


Thanks. Will take a look at it.

Running the demo shows that this is exactly what I want.

Now I just have to understand the demo code.  :slight_smile:

Yes that camera system is very well made. In this game, my camera system is based on the StrategicHandler and I like it alot:
