    for my game i have an active ragdol so tying the audio to animation doesnt work i have a player model made up of different body parts and at the moment i check for a collision with the feet for the ground and then i play the sound but since im using on collision enter whenever the foot slightly scrapes off the floor and back on it plays the sound is there any way to prevent this i can provide any info on how my character is set up if needed.

    A few ideas:
    • If you had a velocity value for your foot, you could set a threshold value to play the sound or not
    • You could have a smaller collider within the foot to trigger the audio, so it would happen only when you have a fuller contact
    • If quick re-firing of the sound is the problem, you could add a debouncing time value, forcing a minimal interval between each footstep sound.
