    Hi!

    Unity Version: 2022.3.7f1

    I am trying to learn how to set up the new input system in Unity. My main problem seems to be that I can't get the "Starter Assets - First Person Character Controller | URP" to appear under tools, as many tutorials suggest. However, they all seem to use an earlier version than I am using. I tried downgrading my Unity version to what the starter assets say they are compatible with and converted my project to a URP project, but it didn't work. Is the Starter Asset even supposed to appear under tools in later versions of Unity?

    All the resources I have found on https://learn.unity.com/ so far do not allow you to choose the latest version of Unity.

    Does anybody know how I can make the Starter Asset appear under tools?
    Do you have suggestions for other assets or tutorials that should work for the latest version of Unity?

    pretty sure the tools part goes back a few years when they dropped making them as part of the menu and released them as just assets on the store.. now you go find the controller in imported asset and use it like all the other assets

    Ok, I see. Any suggestions on updated resources that show me how to connect all the parts that go into creating a controller input? Should I just try to replicate what's in the starter asset into my own project, or is there a smarter way?

    Solved it! Finally figured out to look in the Prefab folder of the StarterAsset. Draged the capsule into the scene and BOOM! it worked! Thanks!
