    Force Field 2.1 Update is pending review in the Unity Asset Store

    Whats new in 2.1:
    • Non-uniform scaling of shield objects. There's a check box added to the inspector that allows to control this behavior.
    • Fade mask code optimization. The script will no longer send unnecessary values to shader when the shield is completely faded.
    • New bonus particle effect included.
    • Force Field scripts now have a new icon.
    • Added [Header] sections to the inspector.

    I love the shader. But It doesn't seem to like if it's parent has a rigidbody :/

    I apologize. I posted kind of soon ;) I do appreciate the quick response by email though!

    (I still believe the model I'm trying to use it on is just modeled wrong)

    Will you be eventually be selling the turret scripts in the Force Field 2.1 demo as a separate package?

    I am having issues with using the force field scripts and shaders, i've heard they do not work to well with odd shaped objects, but even with this non-uniform system i can not get it to work proper, the model i'm trying to put it on isn't too complex, its a oblong sphere separated into 4 sections (making a 4 point shield) but it doesn't seem to like it that much;

    Hi Skyrox,

    Can you provide me with your sphere model, and the model import scale setting you are using either by email at support@forge3d.com or sending a download link via forum PM?

    Thanks.

    Just to be completely sure you're saying that the force field example demo scene will be in version 1.2 of the sci-fi effects package?

    I have received several request to update the current turret script seen in the Sci-Fi Effects with the one from the Force Field web player demo.

    What I'm saying is the turret script used in the Force Field web demo will be included in the next update for the Sci-Fi Effects (next version is 1.2).

    I will also provide the example scene to help with the initial setup. This scene will incude the existing turret model from Sci-Fi Effects and the updated turret script.

    By the moment you have posted your initial question, the 1.1 update was pending the review in the Unity Asset Store.

    Sorry, I didn't mean to mislead you about the whole Force Field web demo and I want to thank you for your understanding.

    Hi
    on the plane demo, how would you make the shield effect pass/ripple the whole way over the plane when its hit rather than in just the one small spot? is this possible?

    thanks

    Hey there,

    Well I'm pretty sure you can play with the Mask Offset and Feather settings on the shield material:



    And also you can set the scripts settings to achieve the desirable effect:



    Just play with the settings and see what works best for you and the mesh scale you have.

    Hope this helps!

    Idk Ive been trying for 6 hours can't get this package to work.
    It seems it doesn't work if the the parent game object has a rigid body.

    Open up the Ship Example
    Give the game object "Plane" a rigid body
    Shoot at it and shields no longer work

    Error
    Non-convex MeshColliders with non-kinematic Rigidbodies are no longer supported in Unity 5.0.

    I know about this issue in Unity 5.0 with their changes to physics engine. Seems to be that Unity team is still working on reasonable solution to enable non-convex mesh colliders with rigidbodies support like it was before in 4.6 so it ensures backward compatibility.

    Here is the original post and possible workaround: http://forum.unity3d.com/threads/u5-rigidbody-mesh-collider-trigger-problems.306698/#post-2094352

    Hope this helps!

    I actually had it working just now but the issue was my mesh wasn't the same rotation as my model. I was really wanting a custom sphere to use as a mesh instead so its more of a bubble mesh.

    Thanks for the response I'll read that link and mess with it some more.

    Hi,
    I was wondering what the best way is to have the force field work with a GameObject that is made up of multiple meshes?
    I am using a spaceship asset that puts together ships with different pieces. Any help would be appreciated!

    Use a combined/custom shield mesh made in a 3d modeling application and a single script instance per ship. As an option you may also have multiple combined shields made with ship pieces.

    I pretty much abandon the use of shields for rigidbody. I can still use this package for static stuff so its all good. I don't like the work around idea.

    One idea I came up with that actually may work pretty well and not be to heavy. Is if the shield gets hit transport the shield to the rigid body object but this idea would only work with using none mesh colliders. Which is fine for the bubble shield effect.

    Hi,
    HitPower does not seam to have any visible effect on the shader. What effect should I be seeing?

    I'm hoping to change the "Size" of the effect based on the damage done by the weapon, should I be looking at hit power or another field?

    Thanks!

    Hey there,

    Hit power is the size of the hit spot you see on the shield surface. Check the example scene and theres the keyboard controls which will let you see how it works. Make sure you try the negative and positive values as this is how it works.

    Hope this helps!

    So, purchased FF and one maybe noob question. Why if I set to anything that hits the force field "Is Trigger" shield no longer works? Any way of enabling that trigger objects activate the force field?

    Hi,

    A trigger doesn't register a collision with an incoming Rigidbody. Instead, it sends OnTriggerEnter, OnTriggerExit and OnTriggerStay message when a rigidbody enters or exits the trigger volume.

    The thing is the shield has to receive the collision coordinate, thats why it stops working.

    You can use an additional primitive collider if you require Trigger events.

    Hope this helps!

    Hi, I'm still not seeing the size of the hit effect change with hit power. I created a youtube video here:


    You'll notice the effect looks exactly the same regardless of how high or low my hit power is. I'd expect the "radius" of the hit to change based on the hit power. Am I missing something?
    Thanks.

    Is there any way to get this asset to work with skinned meshes? As far as I can tell, they're not supported. I'm asking this because having a shield outline a character's figure rather than be a generic shape would be damn cool.

    It is not supported. Otherwise you have to update your mesh collider to match with the original deformed mesh which is quite expensive.
