Bouncing ball

    Hi, Im trying to make a game similar to helix jump, but have a small problem with a bouncing ball. Currently im trying to use Raycasting to check if ball is close to ground and then use rigidbody.addforce with Forcemode set to impulse. It looks pretty nice but the problem is that I have bounce animations where ball gets flat for a second. I dont know why but the whole function gets triggered twice, i've tried adding timers and booleans but it doesnt change anything. Here's code
    Code (CSharp):
    1. public class BallPhysics : MonoBehaviour {
    3.     Rigidbody rb;
    4.     Animator anim;
    5.     float Gravity = -9.8f;
    6.     float JumpForce = 35f;
    8.     void Start ()
    9.     {
    10.         rb = GetComponent<Rigidbody>();
    11.         anim = GetComponent<Animator>();
    12.     }
    15.     void FixedUpdate ()
    16.     {
    19.         rb.AddForce(Gravity*Vector3.up);
    20.         Jump();
    21.     }
    23.     void Jump()
    24.     {
    25.         if (Physics.Raycast(transform.position, transform.TransformDirection(Vector3.down), 0.55f))
    26.         {
    27.             rb.AddForce(JumpForce * Vector3.up, ForceMode.Impulse);
    28.             anim.SetTrigger("Bounce");
    29.         }
    30.     }
    32. }

    Hi, Fixed Update can get called more than once per frame so it is calling your function more than once. Try creating a boolean which get set to false in your jump function then set to true again in LateUpdate. Hope that helps
