Java games rock!

Well its more of a math question than anything else.

I have my camera and I want to place an object in front of it. I have a position coord and a view coord (and thus also a direction vector).

The best approach to this, should I place obj at view coords?, link it directly to Camera?.. anyone had any experience witht his?

When do I get my makeMyGameAsILike() extension?

Well, if you have your camera's location and view you can determine the location of any point on the line.

1  
2  
3  
Vector3f loc = camera.getLocation();
loc = loc.add(camera.getView().mult(CHARACTER_DISTANCE));
character.setLocation(loc);


That will keep the character in the camera's view and at a certain distance at all times.
