This will probably not be my first question here, because I have this idea about a game where you have a house and can decorate each room with lots of furniture and stuff. Like in the sims but not at all 3D. And I'm a complete newbie so sorry in advance!
Anyhow, I want it to be like a doll house, so you see it from the front always. And it should be zoomed out at first, and when you click on a room, it zooms in on the room and then you can decorate and all that. And then a zoom out button so you see the whole house again anytime you want.
I just can't figure out how I should do the zoomey thing.
Do I have to have a big image of the whole house and only have the room in the "game area" when it's zoomed in, and then shrink everything when the player zooms out? If so, how do I make every little object that's in the house stay in place when everything is made smaller?
My brain hurts, so if anyone can point me in the right direction, I would be super grateful!
