Provide the player the ability to change and modify their character to an extent.
- [Instructor] Hello guys.…We are now the new video,…Controlling the Game Camera with SFML View.…In the previous video,…we've learned how to build the player.…In this video, we're going to take a look at create,…and initialize a few instances of View.…Then, we will learn how to draw…sprites, text, and other objects to a view.…Finally, we will draw, or show, the window…and all its views for the current frame.…In my opinion, the SFML view class…is one of the neatest classes.…If after finishing this book,…you make games without using a media, or gaming library,…you will really notice the absence of View.…
The view class allows us to consider our game…as taking place in its own world,…with its own properties.…What do I mean?…When we create a game,…we are usually trying to create a virtual world.…That virtual world rarely, if ever,…is measured in pixels…and rarely, if ever, will that world…be exactly the same number of pixels…as the player's monitor.…We need a way to abstract the virtual world…we are building,…so that it can be whatever size or shape we like.…
