Hi,

 This is very much welcomed!! thanks for this.

It would be good you share the project too, that will help people relate to what you are saying and see it in unity as well, it's very important. Also so that they can compare with their own attempt later, and prevent the typical ( it doesn't work, tho I did exactly like how you said :) )


Bye,

 Jean

Hi,

 yes, received. As far as packaging. You should not put the PlayMaker Folder at all iny our package, that will be the best approach.

So you should create a single top level folder with all your assets in there and package that folder only.

If in doubt simply send me packages and I'll validate them.

Bye,

 Jean

I haven't had any real success with physics and characters before so have avoided that so far, so your tutorial is a good starting point. I have a question that may be better suited in the unity forums 'absolute 101', but anyways; why does my character, after having set up rigidbody and capsule collider with the getAxis+setVelocity, tip over on the capsule colider? pressing left or right will initially just tip him one way or the other on the capsule coliders axis until the bot is flat on the floor and then you can drag him either way lying down, what am I missing?

Edit: I had frozen the wrong axis  ::)

This is really great. I've been looking for this kind of tutorial, in the end you'll get a sorta finished game, type. All I've been getting are bits of tutorial that are not carried onto the next video. They are great but doesn't help a noob like me.. :p

Anyway, looking forward to the next part.
