    First post on here so hoping this is the correct place for this!

    I have downloaded a free torch asset from here: https://assetstore.unity.com/packages/3d/props/electronics/flashlight-18972

    and I am currently looking to attach it to my FPS controller from the standard unity assets and have it move depending on where the character is looking etc.

    I'm very new to using unity for features like this so I have no idea how to even attempt at doing this! I've googled it and looked across the web for any tutorial which could help but there seems to be nothing on doing this at all!

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi,
    With you being new enough that you're not sure where to look to do something like that, I suggest you commit to spending some time going through multiple tutorials from start to finish that take you through a complete game concept, like a FPS or third person shooter. There are several out there.

    Here's some:




    Some youtube channels I recommend are:
    https://www.youtube.com/user/Brackeys
    https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCX_b3NNQN5bzExm-22-NVVg

    The main goal you should have at this point is trying to educate yourself on the basics and terminology so you learn what types of questions you should be asking, or how to ask for what you really need, or most importantly how to go find the information yourself.

    Searching youtube for "unity third person tutorial" gives plenty of results.

    Cheers
