##### Is there an If function for idle? [SOLVED]
« on: March 19, 2018, 07:04:21 PM »
I have been wondering if there is an "if" function for when the character is idle. (I can't use the animator, so that won't be a solution). So if the charactercontroller is not moving then x = y. Something like that? Kind of like there is an "IF" function for grounded.

Hi,

yes, check the GameObjecr speed and  compare it to less than 0.1, which means it's staying in place.

Bye,

Jean

Hi.
I think you are looking for "Float Compare"

hmmm. I'm not sure. What I am using is Vector3 so how would the float relate to it?
I also coded the movement. I didn't use controller simple move.

Hi.
You need to use "Get Speed" , check every frame.
Then use "Float Compare" and also check ever frame.

Thanks!  In the end I used "Get Game Object Speed" from the ecosystem and float compare.

It has worked perfectly.
