    If like me you created a new Nav Agent Type, it turns out that it only works with the default Humanoid agent type.
    Remove yours / reset to Humanoid and it it should be fine.
    Also, if you were getting "Failed to create agent because it is not close enough to the NavMesh" in the console, create an empty game object in your Horse object and add the agent in there, I copied the component settings from the Horse AI model to get it to work for me.

    Hey trying to work out HAP with the new invector shooter. Followed instructions and most things seem fine however the shooter documentation is not finished???
    Also the animator seems to have some troubles as now the characters head (where they are looking at with relation top the camera) is not staying where the camera should be.

    Any idea what is going wrong?
    Also any idea when the documentation will be complete for the shooter sections of invector integration.?

    Hi, I've seen there is a new update on the asset store. I am also using Invector which also got a new update. when can we expect the integration package for Invector?
    Thanks!

    Hi @Malbers There is still an issue unfortunately if you destroy and item in the focused area of the animal. IT says missing when you remove the item. It's strange because its how you pick the item up but for some reason it says missing and causes and error instead of being null. An easy test for you is stand in front of pickupable and when its in the focused item section select it in the hierarchy and delete it. The focused item now says missing and throws up error. I've tried telling setting the focused item = null but that doesn't work.

    I did the test and no errors for me...

    Are you using which function? are you using
    MPickup.PickUpItem() or MPickup.TryPickUp()

    Because you should be using MPickup.TryPickUp()

    And can you tell me the line of the code of the error?

    The error happens in your demo zone too so it's not anything with my items. If you walk up to a pickable in you demo scene with wolf lite this same error occurs. Delete the pickable when it is in the focused zone and it says the item is missing and it stops the pickup working properly as the player does not recognise the zones until another item has entered the focused zone and replaced "missing"

    the "missing" on the Inspector is completely normal when you have a deleted gameobject that was referenced..
    the problem is when it throws an error.. that is why I want to see the line of code on the console :)
    but I have added some tweaks to the code to safe check the null GameObjects:
    try this:

    If you disable the Camera Input on the Animal you can use the walk backwards animations

    Yeah I understand but the 'error' isn't a line of code as such it just stops your system working properly as its out of order. So for example my AI will make a nest combining two items they are both removed and replaced by the nest prefab now because the missing reference then causes the AI to not be able to use mode sleep on the nest, it is stuck in pickup/drop mode - so there is no error as such in the console but the controller is not working until we can get somethings into the missing focused item. (This is the same for the player as well as AI)

    That is because the Set Movement Mobile set by default the Use Camera Input

    Just disable it

    Oh I understand now :)
    I was testing only with the player I'm making some test on my side with the AI..

    I'm curious on how you create your Tasks and decisions to achieve the Pick up and Merging into the nest

    I have fixed the issue in my use case by simply moving the transform position outside the pickup box (The simplest hacks are the best :)) I would still say the issue needs addressing though because I can see instances where items will be removed in game when in one of these pickup areas on an animal.

    Now I have passed this roadblock I will get the video up I promised showing the AI tasks.

    What I have done for the nest is when the AI Stat Tired is <50 it will look for a nest, if there is none within it's radius they make a decision to look for a branch, collects it then looks for a second branch (While holding a branch decision is true) then go to the second branch and attempt the drop mode action. The branches have their own little script on collision to remove themselves and spawn a nest prefab. The original Task of finding a nest becomes true so the AI will move towards it then instigate its sleep action in the nest which also has a sleep zone in it which makes them no longer tired.

    this might be a beginner question but whenever i try to change shader to universal pipeline from graphic settings my character look like this. is there a way to fix this or am I missing something.

    Edit I upgraded through render pipeline if anyone has the same issues. Works for now.

    hahah so glad to know that :)

    From what I understood what you can do is ,to avoid errors:

    Create a new Wait Ai State (with no tasks and 1 Wait Decision (with 1 sec or more))
    after you merge the branches .. and then go to Find the Nest AI State...

    Actually those are simple stats (no logic around them) you can create wathever you want with them...

    For example you can added to an animal, and set the Hunger to Degenerate... and with the Unity Events when is empty you can connected to the health and start degenerating the health too..

    Or in case of the AI animal you can create a AI State that checks with a decision if the Hunger is Lower to 50 and then go find a Eat zone....

    It all depends on what you want to do :)

    Actually yes... I started working on it last week :)

    Hi @Malbers. When you set the obstacle layer for item does it not stop the AI from selecting the item as a target? I am having an issue where the item the AI has picked up is being selected as the next target (Sure it wasn't before) so I thought changing it's layer when picked up to the obstacle layer would take t from the target list but is not. The problem is with the nesting (I'm not sure why this is now happening as before it was working fine. AI wont go to the second branch because it sets the branch in hand as the target which then makes it think its arrived so they drop the item.

    EDIT: I Fixed this issue but thought I would leave here as it might be useful to others. I use the tag script in the animal controller and I have that set in the pickup mode so it disables the tag script when picked up (And re enables on drop). It had been removed which is why the AI was still trying to target it.

    Dear @Malbers,

    I purchased the Poly Art Animals Forest Set and would like to have a customer animation with a custom animation state in the raccoon animal controller. I already managed to create a new aniamtion state, a new animation ID and managed to activate it by input (StatebyInput). In that state, I will create a custom animation, where the animal is strafing. For this I need the animal to be fixed in it's rotation though.

    So here is my question: How can I turn the rotation speed of the animal off completely during that animation? Is the rotation speed solely controlled with the root motion of the animations? Because so far I only saw a way to increase the rotation speed to the base rotation speed of the animal.

    Thank you very much,
    Remus

    Hey @Malbers,

    I have another question: I have a new custom animation state for the controller that needs to be enabled and disabled by input. I already managed to successfully enable it with input using the StatebyInput method. Is there a similar method for disabeling it with input?

    When I'm checking for input in the TryExitState, it doesn't seem to recognize half of the time.

    Thanks,
    Remus

    Hi @Malbers. The update did not fix the zone script bug in the inspector unfortunately. See picture attached here the zone script does not show correctly so you cannot alter any of the fields.

    Hi @Malbers I'm trying to have an AI fly (using Unka as a base). I can successfully take off with
    Code (CSharp):
    1. _aiAnimal.State_Activate(StateEnum.Fly);
    but then I can't land... If I ignore movement for now and just want to hover in place for 3 seconds then land, both
    Code (CSharp):
    1. _aiAnimal.State_Activate(StateEnum.Locomotion);
    and
    Code (CSharp):
    1. _aiAnimal.State_Get(StateEnum.Fly).TryExitState(0f);
    have the same effect, i.e. nothing: Unka keeps flying idle in place. What is the simplest way to land by script?
    I guess what I need is: how do you land by pressing Q again in the Unka Demo scene?

    Yes that is one Solution ... the correct one is:

    Code (CSharp):
    1. _aiAnimal.State_Get(StateEnum.Fly).AllowExit();

    That allows lower states to try to activate themselves :)

    At the moment no, With the current Rider Controller No, I'm preparing the Animal Controller to work fully with humanoids
    Hence Steve:

    And when Steve is out, I will make him use weapons while is on foot. And Mount the Horse

    That is great to know :)
    When is ready I will post it everywhere :)
    The integration will only have the Riding system, not the Combat while riding.... that requires help from justin, his code is too advanced for me :(

    You can create a new Speed Set for that particular New State

    and there change the Rotation Speed for that particular state
    upload_2020-5-28_22-20-8.png

    if you want to complete remove the Rotation of the animal completely you can also use this:
    animal.
    animal.AdditiveRotation = Quaternion.identity; That will remove completely the rotation of the Animal

    Yes! the correct way is to use AllowExit(), that allows lower states to try to activate themselves

    This is how the States work:

    I see some ID Missing there!
    Can you tell me how to reproduce it?
    Did you change something at runtime in the Zone?
    and can you show me the full log of the error to see which one is the script that starts the error :)

    Hi there !

    You can use any camera rig you want, the FreeCamera Rig is completely independent from the Animal controller.
    In fact I highly recommend to use Cinemachine instead. Simply remove it

    Hi @Malbers,

    Thanks for helping me out! :) Just one more question: how can I make the animal accelerate faster to full run speed in locomotion? It feels like it takes too long until it picks up speed.

    Thanks,
    Rene
