Camera similar to neverwinter night

I’m trying to recreate a camera system like neverwinter night in godot:

So, you middle click and it rotates the camera, that’s essentially all I’m trying to achieve right now. I don’t need the collision or anything.

So, I vaguely know how to do this, but I need help with the details.

I have a parent node, this is the point that the camera rotates around. Child of that node is the camera, then I just rotate the node to move the camera and voila!

So actually moving the camera is down.

The question is, how do I then have this movement based off of the mouse middle clicking and dragging.

Have you looked in the asset store? There is a trackball camera add-on. You don’t need all the features so you can just derive from the code.
