[BUG] LookAt Bug

Postby A Laggy Grunt » Tue Aug 20, 2013 10:47 pm

When you try to look in the direction of a target by pressing '7' while the contents of your right multifunction display include a 3D view of something (target, your ship), the main view jerks in the direction of the object, then re-centers straight ahead.

(The planet was straight ahead)

Vegastrike version was 0.5.1.

It's a known bug.

If anyone's thinking of volunteering a patch ;) it's because the "look at" logic uses global state, instead of camera state. It should use camera-attached state instead.

That's not such a small change (that's why I never get to fixing it), but it isn't terribly bad either.
