Playmaker Tutorials / Using Templates
« on: April 15, 2011, 12:33:51 PM »
Here's a quick video to show how to save/load templates (I recommend 720p):

Of course you can also just Copy/Paste FSMs directly, but a library of saved templates can be very useful.
You can also make templates from a selection of states (like saving code snippets).

- Templates must be saved in Assets/PlayMaker/Templates/ directory.
- iTween actions cannot be easily removed from PlayMaker:
- iTween version included in Playmaker might be different than one you already use in a project. You can try unchecking iTween.cs when you import Playmaker, but we haven't tested Playmaker with other versions of iTween...

Playmaker Tips & Tricks / Making a First Person Controller
« on: April 03, 2011, 09:52:14 AM »
Somebody asked about making a first person controller in Playmaker on the Unity forums, so I thought I'd reproduce the answer here:

Note, if the standard first person controller in Unity works for you there's no need to reinvent the wheel! But this might still be interesting as an example of how to use Get Axis and Transform actions...

A simple first person controller made with actions (thrown together in 5 minutes):

Put this on a capsule with a Character Controller component and an attached camera (similar to the setup for the built-in Unity first person controller).

In practice I'd probably split the movement and mouselook into 2 FSMs so they can have their own states. (e.g. Lock movement, but still look around; or take control over the camera to lock onto a target etc.).

Also you should limit the tilt, and use variables for move/pan/tilt speeds so you can expose them in the FSM Inspector and have a nice front end for your controller (Move Speed, Pan Speed, Tilt Speed, Max Tilt...).

When I have a moment I'll try to wrap this up into a nice sample and template.

User Showcase / Hero Test – A 48 Hour Game

My good friend Steve Gargolinski recently made a game in 48 hours using Unity and Playmaker:

You can play the game on his blog (it's very funny) and also download the project files.

He also made a cool timelapse video of the development:
