    Thanks for the quick turnaround time fixing those issues! :) I'm digging into SimpleScript.cs now. One of the first changes I'm making is (of course) to change it to use Input axes instead of the literal keyboard codes.

    It occurs to me that lots of people will probably want this. Do you mind if I just paste my SimpleScript here for other people to use? It doesn't contain the actual core code of UFC, just references to it, so it shouldn't harm sales any. But I figured I'd ask first. :)

    Sounds great! I'm glad you want to help out. Please only post your suggested changes and surrounding relevant code though. I agree, SimpleScript in particular is not a core system, but I think this will be a better precedent for future similar requests.

    By the way, how did the NGUI camera issue work out for you? Was it as easy as changing the layer integers in script?

    Thanks

    Is it possible to move the arm with the gun in the middle of the screen during zoom in ? Sorry, i am just a beginner with Unity and scripting (not programming).

    No problem unicat :) this is easy and can be done in two different ways.

    The quick and dirty way is to modify the zoom code and hard-script the weapon positions.
    In either DemoScript.cs or SimpleScript.cs, find the ZoomIn method and add the following lines inside the inner bracket:

    Code (csharp):
    1. m_Camera.CurrentWeapon.PositionOffset = new Vector3(0.005f, -0.266f, 0.17f);
    2. m_Camera.CurrentWeapon.RotationOffset = new Vector3(-3.158258f, 0, 0);
    3. m_Camera.CurrentWeapon.RefreshSettings();
    4.  
    In the ZoomOut method, add the following lines in the corresponding place:

    Code (csharp):
    1.  
    2. m_Camera.CurrentWeapon.PositionOffset = new Vector3(0.149f, -0.266f, 0.17f);
    3. m_Camera.CurrentWeapon.RotationOffset = new Vector3(-3.158258f, -5f, 0);
    4. m_Camera.CurrentWeapon.RefreshSettings();
    Modify the position and rotation values to get the weapon position and angle you desire. Note that hard scripting the position / rotation might not work for all your different weapons so you may want to check which weapon is active. This can be done by getting:

    Code (csharp):
    1. m_Camera.CurrentWeaponID
    The second way of doing this is creating preset files for all different positions and activating full (or additive) presets for the respective weapon. This is the way most things work in Demoscript.cs, and is covered in some detail in the manual. But just give me a headsup if you need more help!

    Good luck

    Gotcha. It turns out UFC uses a lot of keys that don't exist in the default Player key configs, so assigning virtual axes to them all would mean the default code breaks in a lot of projects. This would make it look like your product doesn't work "out of the box" and probably make implementation of quick and dirty demos more annoying, so I can see why you did it this way.

    That said, Vertical, Horizontal, Fire1, Fire2, and Jump all exist by default, so you could consider working that into the SimpleScript just so noobs have examples of both to learn from. (Is this less elegant because it uses two seperate Input techniques? I can't tell.)

    Anyway, change stuff like:

    Code (csharp):
    1.         // classic 'WASD' first person controls
    2.         if (Input.GetKeyDown(KeyCode."w") { m_Controller.MoveForward(); }
    3.         if (Input.GetKeyDown(KeyCode."s") { m_Controller.MoveBack(); }
    4.         if if (Input.GetKeyDown(KeyCode."a") { m_Controller.MoveLeft(); }
    5.         if (if (Input.GetKeyDown(KeyCode."d")) { m_Controller.MoveRight(); }
    6.  
    to

    Code (csharp):
    1.         // classic 'WASD' first person controls
    2.         if (Input.GetAxis ("Vertical") > 0.01) { m_Controller.MoveForward(); }
    3.         if (Input.GetAxis ("Vertical") < -0.01) { m_Controller.MoveBack(); }
    4.         if (Input.GetAxis ("Horizontal") < -0.01) { m_Controller.MoveLeft(); }
    5.         if (Input.GetAxis ("Horizontal") > 0.01) { m_Controller.MoveRight(); }
    6.  
    Good forward thinking about setting precedents!

    Yeah, I haven't been able to break it ever since the patch. It's actually startlingly precise now when the new gun appears. Good job on the bugfix! :)

    Suggestions for future features: muzzleflash, an example of projectile integration, reload gesture and sound effect, an example of how to swap out presets at runtime, and if you really wanna sink the time into it, a system for layering presets over the top of your existing behavior. (pistol camera + drunk sway, for example.)

    @WarpZone: All good points! I'm currently working on some of the features you suggest ;)

    This is already supported. For example, in DemoScript.cs, you would basically load the Drunk preset onto the camera, then use "SetWeapon" with the weapon you want and load any weapon specific presets you want onto the weapon. But maybe this isn't very clear, I'll likely do some tutorials at some point.

    Here's a small status update of what's currently in the pipe. The "shooter" and "bullet" classes so far support hitscan projectiles, scriptable accuracy falloff in the shape of a cone, multiple simultaneous projectiles (for shotguns), decals, range and ofcourse projectile force for messing up those rigidbodies! There's also a decal manager system which keeps the amount of decals in the scene at a fixed amount and fades out the oldest decals as new ones are born. Fun logic, but trickier than I thought.

    Cheers

    Really great, keep up updating this great package. Could you lean little more into melee system? For example hit animations, maybe collision detection of weapon and hitting riggidbodies. Maybe camera shakes with hits would be nice. Just a suggestion:D

    @unicat: Yay, thanks a lot *humble bow* :)

    @janpec:
    Yeah, I'd really like do do something specific for melee combat. Something along the lines of swinging the weapon and reacting to collisions with camera and weapon shakes.. It's not a high priority right now but at some point for sure. For now you can use regular animations for melee weapons and let the system animate them for weapon bob, falling impact etc. BTW you do already have great control over shaking the camera and weapon using the built in methods to apply force to the respective springs.

    Thanks guys

    Whatever you do for melee weapons, it should be as modular and expandable as the guns are now. It's easy to forget in the post-Halo world but part of the novelty of cracking open a new FPS used to be "I wonder what they made the melee weapon this time?" Pipes, wrenches, hammers, swords, all the way through to Oldschool Duke's Mighty Boot.

    This is a WONDERFUL asset which I will probably be picking up shortly. A few quick Q's, though:

    - Are there other secondary/alternative fire options built in, aside from zoom, than can be defined/setup? Such as remote detonate, charge launch distance, dual wielding, etc? Or even two fire functions from the same weapon, like machine gun/grenade launch?

    - How much control do you have over jumping? Double jump? Can you change the "fade in/out" of ascent and descent?

    Again, great asset.

    @Gherid_lacksGPS: Glad you like the demo! In reply to your questions: "Dual wielding" and "charge launch distance" are not in yet but are planned for the future. "Remote detonation" is not planned at the moment. The jump functionality is "classic"; basically just a one shot upward force and gravity. But double jumping, for example, could be fairly easily achieved by script modification. This basically comes down to your scripting capability. Finally, double / secondary fire should be easy to do by adding multiple "Shooter" components to the same weapon. Just drop me a line if you need help setting that up!

    @WarpZone: I agree. Will always try to keep the system as open ended and expandable as possible.

    Cheers

    May I see a YouTube as I currently cannot play a web player? Other than looks looks fantastic. Will demo ASAP and possibly buy; this looks like it may just be what I need.

    Don't forget:
    - Multiple projectiles (I.E. shotgun.)
    - Particle system upon impact.
    - Sequential "burst" fire (I.E. you pull the trigger once, it fires three rounds in a row, rapid-fire style, like some assault rifles. # of rounds per burst should be customizable. Don't forget to click instead of firing if out of ammo!)
    - Option of actual projectiles instead of hitscan. (Rockets, etc. Variables like the amount of damage done should pass through gracefully if a projectile prefab is supplied.
    - A lot of modern games use "slow" bullets which are *almost* like hitscan except they have a slight delay to them. This reads as more realistic in some situations, particularly with sniper rifles. There are existing scripts that demonstrate how to do this in Unity, I think. An old solution was called "Don't Go Through Things," but there might be a better one by now.

    @SevenBits: Sure. I'll see if I can get around to uploading a clip tomorrow. Stay tuned.

    @WarpZone: Thanks for your suggestions. Multiple projectiles (for shotgun style weapons) is already done and will be included in the next build. It's pretty cool.

    Actually, in the code it says:

    But I don't use layers 30 or 31 at all. I'm trying to toggle off User Layer 9, which is what I'm arbitrarily using as the GUI Layer. I don't see how changing it from 30 to 25 (which is currently unnamed and, as far as I can tell, unused) would change the situation. For some reason instead of just messing with layers 30 and 31, it seems as if your code sets ALL the layers to visible and THEN messes with 30 and 31. Is that correct? Is that the desired behavior? Why not just inherit the camera's render layers first, then set 30 and 31? I think it would prevent a lot of problems like this one and the water one...

    Got it! :D Kudos to the IRC channel.

    replace line 147 (I think) with
    Code (csharp):
    1. camera.cullingMask  = camera.cullingMask   ~((1 << BodyLayer) | (1 << WeaponLayer));
    And that should do the trick! It works for me anyway. Now unless someone explicity uses layers 30 and 31, fpsCamera won't break what the user was trying to do with the camera's render layers! :D

    (I didn't show anyone on IRC your script, I just asked some general questions about how boolean operations on INTs work.)

    Update: Even better:

    Code (csharp):
    1. camera.cullingMask = ~((1 << BodyLayer) | (1 << WeaponLayer));

    Hmm, I must confess I'm no bunny hopping expert. FYI: the FPSController has an "air speed" variable. This should probably be set to 1.0 for it to work. Also, in the "UpdateMoves" method of "vp_FPSController.cs" you may need to make some changes along the lines of what's suggested in the following article:
    http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1229932

    But again I'm no expert in the matter. I really like the idea though. I'll probably take a look at this somewhere down the road if noone solves it before me :)

    Excellent news! :D Everything's modular and tweakable, right? Mesh and muzzleflash offsets can be plugged in per-gun, with traditional animation as an optional extra?

    Warpzone, yes everything is modular and tweakable per weapon. And as before, nothing in the system prevents you from overlaying the procedural motion with traditional animations.

    Ok, Ultimate FPS Camera 1.2 has been approved and is available in the Asset Store. The system now has raycasting bullets, a decal manager for bulletholes, realistic shell case physics and muzzle flashes. Several example particle FX prefabs are included. The manual has been extended to discuss all new features in extensive detail.

    Read the full Release Notes HERE

    Hi, I like this asset a lot. But I would like to see the weapons move into position slowly, so that when the player switches weapons the gun leaves the screen and then the selected weapon gets brought into view.

    I like the fact that all your code is open so that I can change it, something that all the assets should be forced to have. But I noticed a spot where I could program this additional feature:

    Code (csharp):
    1. public void SetWeapon(int i)
    2.     {
    3.  
    4.         if (m_Weapons.Count < 1)
    5.         {
    6.             Debug.LogError("Error: Tried to set weapon with an empty weapon list.");
    7.             return;
    8.         }
    9.         if (i < 0 || i > m_Weapons.Count)
    10.         {
    11.             Debug.LogError("Error: Weapon list does not have a weapon with index: " + i);
    12.             return;
    13.         }
    14.  
    15.         foreach (Transform t in transform)
    16.         {
    17.             if (t.name.Contains("WeaponCamera"))
    18.             {
    19.                 t.gameObject.SetActiveRecursively(false);
    20.             }
    21.         }
    22.  
    23.         if(m_CurrentWeaponID > 0)
    24.         {
    25.             m_Weapons[m_CurrentWeaponID - 1].SetActiveRecursively(false);
    26.         }
    27.  
    28.         m_CurrentWeaponID = i;
    29.  
    30.         if (m_CurrentWeaponID > 0)

    In this function all you are doing is making the old weapon invisible and making the selected weapon visible. But what if we altered it so that the weapon is removed from view by being put at a certain location, then after it reached that specified location it would turn invisible.

    What are your thoughts on this?
