    Custom Gravitations Kit
    The easiest way to make gravitation anomalies
    walking on planets
    running on walls

    and so on...
    Get it on Asset Store
    [​IMG]

    Asset Store: http://u3d.as/7FJ
    Demo game: http://patico.pro/PlanetGravity/Demo
    Video tutorial: www.youtube.com/watch?v=eh6NmqOUVLc
    Demo gameplay: www.youtube.com/watch?v=NuHIm6Oni48


    $872c24ef-6072-49a5-99df-0eeda5372a34_scaled.jpg

    Features:
    - 3 types of gravitational fields (Centric, Directional and Gravity to Normal vectors)
    - Ready-to-use Character controller
    - Ready-to-use Camera controller
    - Click-and-Create menu - perfect tool for building up scenes, making placement of objects on planets surfaces more convinient and easier
    - System of object interaction, helping to make an interactive object
    - Works well in Unity and Unity Pro.


    This perfect kit of different gravity fields can be used in any game where you need to setup your own local gravitations.
    Use Centric Gravitation field for creating planets, Directional Gravitation for making local anomalies of gravity, or Gravity To Normal for implementing something special.

    This toolkit also includes special Character controller, which allow players to walk on the planets, even when they reach the south pole.
    Besides character controller it has a special customisable Camera Controller with 3rd person view and Side view (pseudo 2D) presets.

    $060cccad-a912-42a7-935c-56ba6bc5a183_scaled.jpg

    Everybody knows that correctness of placing objects on such spherical surfaces as a planets is not convinient, and in sometimes very difficult and hard. So I added Click-and-Create tool to this toolkit. Now all you need is select prefab and click the place where it should be. If you want to place a lot of the same objects just check on "Auto repeat" checkbox in the parameters section.
    For example if you want to create a rock ridge use such parameters:
    - Random rotate: All Axes
    - Random scale: from 1 to 3
    - Auto repeat: On
    ... and make some clicks in different places of surface.

    Video tutorial [Beta]

    This is first video, and it does not cover all existing functions, but anyway it's good point to start.

    Hi there,
    I've just recorded short gameplay of demo game and would like share it with you
    :p



    P.S.: I going to add some annotations later, to describe couple of moments and possibilities.
    If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

    UPD: Annotations added, check it on, it's really making things clear : )

    Would this work with the physics platform character controller on the asset store?

    I'm not sure if I understand you correctly. But, in any case, this asset works well with Unity's phisycs, and also has additional character controller, which could be used for moving character in abnormal gravitational fields (for example, when your player should walk around planet).

    so does this work with cars / vehicles or does it have to be slow and only walkers ?

    Hi,
    it does not matter in what way you will use this toolkit - it will work with a car, human or something else. But if your car run fast, you should increase gravity force.

    Can you switch gravity from character to ground on the fly ? Like say a mario cart going down the road and then suddenly driving on a wall sideways on and off of the wall back to the ground ?

    Hello, i want to know if i can move this "field" for example i have a spaceship and i want to walk inside the spaceship by its local gravity, and then i want to fly around , so what i mean if i can attach this filed to an object and fly around with it ?

    Yes, of course, all you need is add gravitational field to your spaceship, and this field will move around with it.

    Not yet, but I'm working on it.
    Currently I'm working on adding supporting of uFPS and Unity's Character Controller from Simple Assets. There are some issues (probably it will require to make couple fixes in uFPS scripts), but I hope, I could add this functionality in next releases.

    Man that is awesome, i saw you asked about new features, i know that is a tricky one but what about jumping from one attractor planet to the next without solid bridges or game objects? what about jumping into empty space with or without throttles and being randomly attracted by one of the forces ;-)) ?? This will be a definately must buy for me!
    Anyway awesome work!

    Yes, it's possible right now out-of-the-box. When you will reach another gravitational field you will fall down on the its object. It could be a planet with centric gravity, or any other object with other types of gravity (directional or gravity to normal)

    As soon as character leave gravitational field he became flying in open space (untill inertional force greater then zero). I think it is not difficult to implement something like jetpack and get a "managed flying" around planets.

    Thanks!

    For my projekt i changed in the GravityCharakterController.cs line 126 from " vectorNormal = Vector3.Lerp(vectorNormal," to "vectorNormal = -Vector3.Lerp(vectorNormal," to walk inside a sphere. Was that the right way?
    I'm asking because it had little lags and my charakter falls often trough the sphere wich has a mesh collider.

    Yes, in current demo this is not implemented, but I can make another one simple scene with jumping from one planet to another. I'll post a link to it as soon as it will be ready :)

    This is awesome. This is similar to physics volumes in the Unreal Editor. Is it possible to create a water volume with this asset as well?

    Hi, Blackghost, nice idea! But currently, implementation of it will require a lot of modifications, so I decided to add it to the futher features list. Probably I will add this in the next releases.
    Thanks.

    Hello, Patico.
    Awesome plugin! This is really something in creating scenes in Unity.
    I think that with UFPS or character controllers would be even more awesome :)

    Hi Gabriel, thanks for feedback. Currently, I prepare release with supporting Unity's character controller (Simple Assets) and also with supporting of massive planets from Planetary Terrain asset. UFPS is not so easy to integrate with other assets, so I plan to add this feature in the further releases.

    Hi guys!
    I have couple of good news for you.

    First of all I've just completed intergation of Custom Gravitation Kit with Planetary Terrain. Now these two assets are fully compatible and works well, including cases with a really big planets. Now you can create gaint massive planet with that beautiful Planetary Terrain asset, and walking there with the Custom Gravitation Kit and standart Unity's character controller...

    Custom Gravitation Kit + Planetary Terrain == Cool thing #1 : )

    Yes, you're right. Now Custom Gravitation Kit will support standart Unity's character controller. And it's a good news number two : ) This new feature almost finished, and will included in the next update.

    Custom Gravitation Kit + Unity' s Third Person Character == Cool thing #2 : )

    For the first time Custom Gravitation Kit will support only third person controller from Unity's Sample Asset. First person controller is the next feature that I plan to implement.

    Here is links for these friendly assets: Planetary Terrain, Unity's Sample Asset (free), Custom Gravitation Kit

    Here we go! New release is coming soon!

    Kind regards,
    Patico

    Hi, Devision4,
    If that asset based on phisycs, most likely it will work, but I should make some tests and then I could answer more exactly. I will let you know.

    so, to be sure:
    Is it possible to create Racetracks with Loops, Teisters, Helix..etc - and let Vehicles fly over it?

    Hi, Blackghost, it is very good idea, but it requires to make big changes in current implementation, so I decided to realize it at a future date.

    I would like to buy this asset as it looks great, awesome idea, and very interesting, but I do not know if it will still work and is compatible with Unity 4.6 and with Unity 5 beta, please, have any one used it with Unity 4.6 or 5 beta?

    Also another thing I do not understand is that is told that it has it´s OWN special character controller, so how is this different from Unity' s Third Person Character? I do not care and do not mind to use a special one IF it works right.

    The website patico.pro and the demo Unity player that showed how it works DOES NOT WORK as it is not available anymore, also is not available the PDF, the only thing that is still available is the Youtube video

    Patico wrote this shown here below in October 10 2014, and today is 30 January 2015, 3 months and 20 days and there is no news after the last post from December 2014 and as said now the website is missing and seems that there is no email either to contact the author.

    Thanks for any possible help
