    Is there any kind of iOS Twin Stick solution to simulate WASD (Left Stick) + Mouse Look (Right Stick)? Looking for a plug-n-play pre-built solution.

    I did a search in both the Asset Store and here on the forums and turned up no results.

    (ALSO: I would need an ability to *tap* a button or the Right Stick to Jump)

    Just found a solution in OcclusionCulling:
    http://unity3d.com/support/resources/example-projects/iphone-examples

    Also discovered the StandardAssets (Mobile) FirstPersonSetup example scene. Huzzah!

    However, the virtual Twin Sticks do not auto-re-position based on wherever players puts down their left/right thumbs on the screen. That would need to be added to match the usability standards target in the above-referenced Gamasutra article.

    Thats great, but forgive me for asking but are you asking us to code it for you?

    apologies if you don't mean that. I think the best place to start would be the pandora demo on tutorials, it has twin sticks if I recall...

    Nope, I was looking for essentially the exact thing that was already in the Standard Assets Mobile pack, since it seemed like such a default basic feature.
