I'm creating a game that involves the player entering a tank, when he does, his camera is disabled and the tanks camera gets used, but Gaia continues to use the player's camera for loading and unloading which means it loads and unloads the wrong terrains. How can I tell Gaia that a different camera is now being used?

Hi, the terrain loading during runtime for the player is tied to the "Terrain Loader" component - you would need to deactivate that on the old camera, and activate it on the new one for the time the player is inside the tank, then switch back when the player leaves again. Alternatively you could also put the terrain loader component on the player itself, if the transform of the player is moved together with the tank, if your game / camera setup allows for it.

Ah that's good to know... one of the issues I always have with camera based systems is if you have a zoomed out 3rd person view things don't always move with the player.
