I need to make realistic human movement (3D) using mouse click.
 
1. Get mouse click point using RaycastAll.
2. Smoothly Slerp to LookRotation.
 
Everything works fine, except I have problem with circular movement (close radius).
 
1. 
">Example If dont move transform.forward while Slerp to LookRotation or MoveTowards instead of transform.forward it will be spinning like whirligig on circular movement.
2. 
">Example If do move transform.forward while while Slerp to LookRotation it will distort trajectory of straight direct movement.
 
Is there any solution to move circular realistic (not spin like whirligig) and move straight direct when needed (not distort trajectory)?
 
I need straight movement from first example and circular movement from second.
 
void Update()
{
    if (Input.GetMouseButtonDown(1))
    {
        Ray ray = Camera.main.ScreenPointToRay(Input.mousePosition);
 
        RaycastHit[] hits = Physics.RaycastAll(ray);
 
        foreach (RaycastHit hit in hits)
        {
            if (hit.transform.tag == "Ground")
            {
                DestinationPosition = new Vector3(hit.point.x, transform.position.y, hit.point.z);
 
                DestinationRotation = Quaternion.LookRotation(DestinationPosition - transform.position);
 
                break;
            }
        }
    }
 
    if (Vector3.Distance(transform.position, DestinationPosition) > 1)
    {
        transform.rotation = Quaternion.Slerp(transform.rotation, DestinationRotation, RotationSpeed * Time.deltaTime);
 
        transform.position += transform.forward * MovementSpeed * Time.deltaTime;
 
        //transform.position = Vector3.MoveTowards(transform.position, DestinationPosition, MovementSpeed * Time.deltaTime);
 
        animation.CrossFade("run");
    }
    else
    {
        animation.CrossFade("idle");
    }
}

It looks like two issues.

 

First issue, I cannot really comment on your movement style, but I find it suspicious. I much prefer a general purpose MoveTo() style command that can figure out how the character should animate without conflicting with other animations, can avoid collisions, can search for paths through the map to find bridges and doorways, and otherwise work with the map. Of course, if that works for you, then this is not an issue.

 

Second issue, it looks like you need a 'dead zone' around the character.  Any move requests within that zone should be discarded. That way when the player touches very near the player they won't jump and spin in place. The player will need to touch some distance away from the character in order to trigger any movement.  The player could still cause spinning, but it would require a large intentional movement.

I think you might want an animation that drives the turning, instead of slerping.  You can take a look at some of the Unity Mecanim animation tree examples to see how they handle it.

      Hello fellow devs!
      Once again I started working on an 2D adventure game and right now I'm doing the character-movement/animation. I'm not a big math guy and I was happy about my solution, but soon I realized that it's flawed.
      My player has 5 walking-animations, mirrored for the left side: up, upright, right, downright, down. With the atan2 function I get the angle between player and destination. To get an index from 0 to 4, I divide PI by 5 and see how many times it goes into the player-destination angle.

      In Pseudo-Code:
      angle = atan2(destination.x - player.x, destination.y - player.y) //swapped y and x to get mirrored angle around the y axis
      index = (int) (angle / (PI / 5));
      PlayAnimation(index); //0 = up, 1 = up_right, 2 = right, 3 = down_right, 4 = down

      Besides the fact that when angle is equal to PI it produces an index of 5, this works like a charm. Or at least I thought so at first. When I tested it, I realized that the up and down animation is playing more often than the others, which is pretty logical, since they have double the angle.

      What I'm trying to achieve is something like this, but with equal angles, so that up and down has the same range as all other directions.

      I can't get my head around it. Any suggestions? Is the whole approach doomed?

      Thank you in advance for any input!

      Hi , I was considering this start up http://adshir.com/, for investment and i would like a little bit of feedback on what the developers community think about the technology.
      So far what they have is a demo that runs in real time on a Tablet at over 60FPS, it runs locally on the  integrated GPU of the i7 . They have a 20 000 triangles  dinosaur that looks impressive,  better than anything i saw on a mobile device, with reflections and shadows looking very close to what they would look in the real world. They achieved this thanks to a  new algorithm of a rendering technique called Path tracing/Ray tracing, that  is very demanding and so far it is done mostly for static images.
      From what i checked around there is no real option for real time ray tracing (60 FPS on consumer devices). There was imagination technologies that were supposed to release a chip that supports real time ray tracing, but i did not found they had a product in the market or even if the technology is finished as their last demo  i found was with a PC.  The other one is OTOY with their brigade engine that is still not released and if i understand well is more a cloud solution than in hardware solution .
      Would there  be a sizable  interest in the developers community in having such a product as a plug-in for existing game engines?  How important  is Ray tracing to the  future of high end real time graphics?

      Good day,

      I just wanted to share our casual game that is available for android.

      Description: Fight your way from the ravenous plant monster for survival through flips. The rules are simple, drag and release your phone screen. Improve your skills and show it to your friends with the games quirky ranks. Select an array of characters using the orb you acquire throughout the game.

      Hello,
      without going into any details I am looking for any articles or blogs or advice about city building and RTS games in general. I tried to search for these on my own, but would like to see your input also. I want to make a very simple version of a game like Banished or Kingdoms and Castles,  where I would be able to place like two types of buildings, make farms and cut trees for resources while controlling a single worker. I have some problem understanding how these games works in the back-end: how various data can be stored about the map and objects, how grids works, implementing work system (like a little cube (human) walks to a tree and cuts it) and so on. I am also pretty confident in my programming capabilities for such a game. Sorry if I make any mistakes, English is not my native language.
      Thank you in advance.
