Summary0005310: Add a way to teleport to coordinates (via Console Command or Python)
DescriptionThe TDM game has commands:
  setviewpos x y z a b c
The first one prints coordinates and Euler angles, the second one teleports player to coordinates and orients by angles.
Note that angles are options, since in most cases user don't need them.

It would be great to have similar feature in DR, be it a separate dialog or just a scripting command.
TagsNo tags attached.

CTRL+MIDDLEMOUSE button can move the camera to a point in one of the ortho views
MIDDLEMOUSE button + move cursor changes the camera to look at the mouse in the ortho views

In DR they are called Drag Camera and Drag View

You should be able to get what you want using those two.

With ortho view, I can only set two coordinates. How to set third coordinate?
And for it to happen, I have to monitor coordinates while moving mouse, which takes some time and effort.

In the recent master branch, getting or setting the camera position via C++ code can be done like this:

// This might throw an std::runtime_error if no camera is present
auto& camera = GlobalCameraManager().getActiveView();

// Get the current position and angles
Vector3 orig = camera.getCameraOrigin();
Vector3 angles = camera.getCameraAngles();

// Set the current position and angles

// Or set both at the same time
camera.setOriginAndAngles(orig, angles);

I'll have a look at exposing that functionality to the CommandSystem and Python scripts.

New console commands available:

 SetActiveCameraPosition "100 40 50"
 SetActiveCameraAngles "30 10 20"

Camera angles are pitch,yaw,roll in degrees.
