Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Topdown game vertical look

Hallo there,

Im working on a Topdowngame and i was wondering if anyone knows a way enable a character to look up or down depending on the surface where they are standing on. For example when my character is moveing up of down stairs i want him to aim up or down so when enemies come you can shoot them.

I added a picture as example.

P.s Sorry for my bad english.alt text

Edit: Added a new examplealt text

Perhaps IK is the answer you are looking for - I saw this posted on twitter a few days ago and it seems to be a plugin that will be released soon - https://twitter.com/_Sithila/status/827471056499724288

Thanks for the fast answer but its not what i mean. I found a video where some did what i want in Unity.

Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yo2Sz-sc8ZE&t=82s between 0:20-0:26. The characters upper body looks up while moveing up.
