For my 30 actions in 30 days, i created a new VRTK playmaker action called "get controller velocity". It can be downloaded for free under MIT license from my github account. Protip: VRTK can be used for HTC vive, Rift and Google Daydream.

Day 3. This is a rewrite from ground up of an action recently posted here.

"Create Material"
My action has options to set the shader, choose a main texture and albedo color from this one action. In my tutorial I briefly show how you can add more textures or other options to your material as well.

General Discussion / Next Action Package to Complete?
« on: April 01, 2017, 08:46:25 AM »
So, i have essentially finish the Textmesh Pro Actions for Playmaker. You can see details here on my Patreon account:

I am considering on which package to complete next.

Currently it seems there are no Playmaker supported localization assets with playmaker actions.
This one seems the most popular: I2 Localization!/content/14884

Or maybe Trigger Pro:!/content/11330

Inventory Master - uGUI:!/content/26310

Thoughs? Ideas?

Past packages have been (avaliable through my Patreon account).

Day 2 of Thirty Custom Actions in Thirty Days.

Today is "set string case". This action does as it sounds. It can set a string variable to uppercase, lowercase and textcase (first letter of every word to be uppercase).

The action is available here on github:

Here is a short video tutorial on how to use this action:

Over the next thirty days, I am going to try and write thirty custom actions (as a way to help improve my own coding skills). Hopefully I will have time to also make youtube videos to go along with them.

First days action can be downloaded here:

Its a simple loop counter. While you can make your own loop counter in playmaker, this one works out of the box. Set a max count number, the current count number and even the count amount (can count by 2, 3, 4, etc). Events exist for different outcomes.

Ive created a short video explaining the action and give an example of how to use it:

Playmaker Announcements / Playmaker for Unity 2017
« on: March 17, 2017, 04:39:29 AM »

I was wondering if there any any thoughts for playmaker in unity 2017 (post untiy 5.6). I heard through the grapevine that there could be visual scripting built into unity 2017 (similar to UE blueprints). Not sure if that will be true or not.

Where will that leave playmaker if so? I see that playmaker right now is free as part of the paid unity package.



Two actions (free).

I had need in a project to trigger the ugui's highlighted state (basically its a faded color change). This action just triggers the change. No color picker or anything else. Very simple. The color is set on the actual ugui unity button script. I just want to trigger it with playmaker.

There is a matching action to deselect the highlighted state.

Tutorial here if you need help:

Actions can be found on my github account here:

Playmaker Help / How to capture Fsm with State Options
« on: March 10, 2017, 01:25:42 AM »
I see that I can screen capture a FSM, using the built in options.

However, that just copies the Fsm 'Map'. It doesnt show all of the actions added in each state.

Sometimes I want to show someone on the forum how the Fsm was made. I think I saw other people screen capture with nice little boxes next to each state, showing all the actions.

Is there a way to do this out of the box? Or an ecosystem add-on I can use?


VR Help / VRTK Playmaker Actions and Slack Channel
« on: March 06, 2017, 06:38:30 AM »
I will just point to my thread here on the forums where I will make periodic updates about the free playmaker actions for VRTK.

You can download the actions from github:

I think I am up to around 60 actions? You can post questions, or action requests here.

I am also often around the VRTK slack channel, which has a small playmaker section with people chatting daily:

Playmaker Help / Listening for Script Events
« on: February 25, 2017, 10:24:34 AM »
Is there a way to receive script events in playmaker?

I see that you can add global transitions to a state, that includes custom (FSM) events, and system events, network events.

I have a script that sends events, such as "OnControllerObscured", that I would like to use as as a global transition.

Do I need to write a custom action to make that happen?

Thank you!

Playmaker Help / How to Set FsmEnum Type in Custom Action?
« on: February 23, 2017, 05:56:31 AM »

How can I set the enum type in a custom action?

I can set the enum variable like this:
public FsmEnum Enum;

But in the playmaker inspector, I get "Enum Type" set to none. I would like to set the type.

Sorry I searched the forums and could not find an answer or an example in the actions in playmaker. Very cool we can use Enum in playmaker. Handy.

Share New Actions / VRWeapons Actions for SteamVR Weapons
« on: February 21, 2017, 05:13:26 AM »
I have created a set of playmaker actions for the VRweapons asset on the unity store. I am not the creator of this assets package, but I do use it myself. So, I decided to create some actions for it.

You can download it for free here on Github. This works with VRweapons version 1.18. A new version is expected soon. I am working with the asset creator to update the actions to the newest version when it comes out on the unity store. My playmaker actions for the newest version will become available on the unity store (free) and also on github.

Enjoy and please feel free to leave any comments, questions or concerns below.
