    I know how to change the view of the camera, but I want to make a good character without having to use a pre-created one, but that would actually be OK.
    Can anyone help me?:?: I'm 10. Only 10.:wink:

    Have you done the 3rd person tutorial? If not you should look at it, and then try making a marble blast style game.

    Creating a whole animated bipedal 3rd person character is really hard. It requires knowledge in many fields, like modeling, texturing, animation and scripting.

    After you have looked at the 3rd person tutorial and got a camera following a sphere around you should try making a really simple 3rd person tank or something.

    And I can't stress enough how important all the stuff on this page is to new users of Unity, especially the script reference: http://unity3d.com/support/documentation/
