Hey all! I'm working on a project that uses a click to move script to control the player. I'm having a small problem though, and it's hung me up for a good 3 hours. The character is just a cube, and he's walking on a plane. The problem comes into collision. I have a big cube in the middle of the plane that i want to run in to. Whenever you go to run at the cube, as soon as you hit the cube the player just starts to jitter around.

 

Here's the script for the walking: 

 

using UnityEngine;
using System.Collections;
 
public class CTM : MonoBehaviour {
 
    private Vector3 targetPosition;
    public Vector3 dir;
    private float dist;
    private float move;
 
    public float moveSpeed = 100f;
    public bool isRunning = false;
    public float stamina = 10;
    public GameObject collCheck;
    public GameObject check;
       
        // Update is called once per frame
        void Update ()
    {
        if (Input.GetKeyDown("w"))
        {
            if (isRunning)
                isRunning = false;
            else if (!isRunning && stamina >= 0)
                isRunning = true;
        }
 
        if (isRunning == false)
        {
            moveSpeed = 20f;
            if (stamina < 10)
                stamina += Time.deltaTime;
        }
        if (isRunning == true)
        {
            moveSpeed = 30f;
            stamina -= Time.deltaTime;
            if (stamina <= 0)
                isRunning = false;
        }
 
        //Revised code from JS ClickToMove
        if(Input.GetKey(KeyCode.Mouse1))
        {
            Plane playerPlane = new Plane(Vector3.up, transform.position);
            Ray ray = Camera.main.ScreenPointToRay(Input.mousePosition);
            float hitdist = 0.0f;
            if (playerPlane.Raycast (ray, out hitdist))
                {
                    Vector3 targetPoint = ray.GetPoint(hitdist);
                    //targetPosition = ray.GetPoint(hitdist);
                    //var targetRotation = Quaternion.LookRotation(targetPoint - transform.position);
                    transform.rotation = Quaternion.LookRotation(targetPoint - transform.position);
                }
            //if (rigidbody.for
            //rigidbody.AddRelativeForce(new Vector3(0,0,1) * moveSpeed , ForceMode.Force);
            transform.Translate(Vector3.forward * moveSpeed * Time.deltaTime);
        }
       
 
        dir = targetPosition - transform.position;
        dist = dir.magnitude;
        move = moveSpeed * Time.deltaTime;
        /*
        Destroy(check);
        check = GameObject.Instantiate(collCheck, transform.position + (targetPosition - transform.position).normalized * moveSpeed * Time.deltaTime, Quaternion.identity) as GameObject;
        if (check.GetComponent<CollisionCheck>().collided == true)
            dir = Vector3.zero;
        */
        if(dist > move)
        {
            //transform.position += dir.normalized * move;
        }
        else
        {
            //transform.position = targetPosition;
        }
        //transform.position += (targetPosition - transform.position).normalized * moveSpeed * Time.deltaTime;
        }
}

 

I can provide more info if needed. Also will give skype ID if you think you can help over voice chat! Thanks!

I didn't look in too much detail, but do you have anything that makes you stop once you collide with the big cube.  Physics(or simple collision response) is keeping the small cube outside of the big one, but that won't automatically stop the other script(Click to Move) from trying to progress towards its target.  So the jittering would be a constant collision, push out of collision, collision again....  You need to somehow stop the Click to move script upon collision, or it needs to be redone to go around collisions, depending on what you want.

Make sure you are using a rigid body attached to your cube. In your collision code block set the rigidbody velocity to 0.

 

Example:

_________________________

 

 

var getRigid : RigidBody

 

 

 

OnCollisionEnter(getCollider : Collision){

 

getRigid.velocity.x = 0;

getRigid.velocity.y = 0;

getRigid.velocity.z = 0;

 

}

 

Should fix the problem. Also that code is from the top of my head you'll need to make a reference for your rigidbody for the example I used (getRigid)

 

 

Cheers!

      Hey guys,
      I have a really weird problem. I'm trying to get some data from a REST service. I'm using the following code:
       
      private void GetTheScores() { UnityWebRequest GetCommand = UnityWebRequest.Get(url); UnityWebRequestAsyncOperation operation = GetCommand.SendWebRequest(); if (!operation.webRequest.isNetworkError) { ResultsContainer rez = JsonUtility.FromJson<ResultsContainer>(operation.webRequest.downloadHandler.text); Debug.Log("Text: " + operation.webRequest.downloadHandler.text); } } The problem is that when I'm in Unity's editor, the request doesn't return anything (operation.webRequest.downloadHandler.text is empty, the Debug.Log command just prints "Text: "), but when I enter the debug mode and insert a breakpoint on that line, then it returns the text properly. Does anyone have an idea why is this happening?
      The real problem I'm trying to solve is that when I receive the text, I can't get the data from the JSON. The markup is really simple:
      [{"id":1,"name":"Player1"},{"id":2,"name":"Player2"}] and I have an object that should accept that data:
      [System.Serializable] public class ResultScript { public int id; public string name; } There is also a class that should accept the array of these objects (which the JSON is returning):
      [System.Serializable] public class ResultsContainer { public ResultScript[] results; } But when I run the code (in the debug mode, to get any result) I get an error: ArgumentException: JSON must represent an object type. I've googled it but none of the proposed solutions work for me.
      Also (regardless if I'm in the debug mode or not) when I try to do some string operations like removing or adding characters to the GET result, the functions return an empty string as a result
      Can you help me with any of these problems?
      Thank you

      The Emotional Music Vol. I pack focuses on beautiful and esoteric orchestral music, capable of creating truly emotive and intimate moods. It features detailed chamber strings, cello and piano as the main instruments, resulting in a subtle and elegant sound never before heard in video game royalty-free music assets.

      The pack includes 5 original tracks, as well as a total of 47 loops based on these tracks (long loops for simple use and short loops for custom / complex music layering).

      Unreal Engine Marketplace link: https://www.unrealengine.com/marketplace/emotional-music-vol-i

      A 15 seconds preview of each main track is available on Soundcloud:

      Additional Project Info:
      Summary:
      Bassetune Reapers is a Player-verus-Player, competitive dungeon crawler. This basically takes on aspects of dungeon crawling, but with a more aggressive setting. Players will have the option to play as the "dungeon-crawlers" (called the 'Knights', or "Knight Class", in-game) or as the "dungeon" itself (literally called the 'Bosses', or "Boss Class", in-game). What this means is that players can choose to play as the people invading the dungeon, or as the dungeon-holders themselves.
      Key Features:
      -Intense, fast-paced combat
      -Multiple skills, weapons, and ways to play the game
      -Tons of different Bosses, Minibosses, creatures and traps to utilize throughout the dungeon
