Game design question: Ledge grabbing etc.
« on: March 27, 2017, 03:33:00 AM »
Hi guys,

So this is more of a design challenge.

Our game is a 2.5D kinda platformer. You can jump from different platforms, but you can also build those platforms out of blocks.

First I have a issue, since we are using boxes if the player jumps and presses onto a box, he falls quit slow, and kinda get stuck in between the boxes where he should just fall down.

Also we would like to experiment with ledge grabbing, how could you go about creating that? Would you use triggers on each side of the box or?

Kinda like this:

Thank you,

Do you have a Physic Material on the collider to the Player?

No? Didn't know that could impact it, but there is some settings that I could adjust? I will check it out, thanks.

Also havn't seen the tutorial, I will give it a look :)

Do as follows:
Dynamic Friction = 0
Static Friction = 0
Bounciness = 0
Friction Combine = Multiply  :)
