    ABC is a toolkit which allows you to easily add weapons and create abilities from melee attacks to magic spells with no coding required. ABC also comes with a wide variety of combat related functionality.

    Asset Store

    "ABC gives you the power to make any ability you dream of a reality."




    With simplicity in mind
    ABC has been designed to implement easily into your existing or new games using only 2 components. One which is used to setup and controls features like activating abilities. The other to interact with ABC - for example to take damage from an attack.

    With over 50 ability effects and a multitude of options and functionality you can get creative and further increase the potential of your games. Add an unlimited number of effects from inflicting damage and buffing stats to moving objects.

    Unless a flurry of attacks in a combo, have an ability bounce around targets, detonate a bomb with a click of a button, setup for FPS and have the player switch through guns to fire, create pick-ups which provide buffs, setup an ability to fly to the sky and then come crashing down on your target, setup a barrier which throws any enemies away that touches it, activate an unlimited number of projectiles at once. The possibilities are endless!


    ABC doesn't stop with just creating Abilities for your games - it also has a whole host of combat related functionality including AI, Health & Mana Management, Target & Auto Target System, Stat Creation, Interactive toolbars and much more.



    As an extra ABC also comes with free graphics, characters, animations, audio sounds and icons and premade weapons, abilities and effects. ABC also comes with a very easy to use character creator which can get characters combat ready in just a few clicks

    • Ability Creation and Management
    • AI
    • Health/Mana System
    • Target and Auto Target System
    • Automatic Object Pooling
    • Stat Creation

    3) Animation override setting has been added to weapons, this allows you to override the idle/walk/run/jump animations with a animation clip. Setup just one idle/run animations in the Animator and have these clips setup in the Animator overriden with a new clip depending on the weapon equipped. Allows less setup to be made in the Animator.

    4) Crosshair Override Animation added to weapons, useful for FPS/TPS. Allows for a different animation to play when the player is focusing/aiming. The global crosshair override animation can still be set if you don't want an animation per weapon.


    **** Weapons new Functionality/Amendments ****

    1) Setting added to disable all abilities attached to other weapons when equipping a weapon, allows for you to disable all abilities attached to other weapons leaving abilities like spells to always be enabled.

    **** AI new Functionality/Amendments ****

    2) Added more then one tag to AI Navigation, this can be set to follow the tags in order or randomly. By using the ordering you can set for friendly NPCs to follow your character until an enemy is near in which it will then navigate towards it to attack if tag order looks like following: enemy > player

    3) Improved AI targeting so potential targets are ordered by closest range and made it so AI rules check the current AI Navigation target first before the other potential targets, i.e who the AI has focus on

    4) if an AI is using Line of Sight (i.e enemies won't know your there until they see you) they will now become alerted if hit before they see your character.


    **** Misc new Functionality/Amendments ****

    1) Adding a new UI Icon will now automatically create an icon button in game already linked, simply move this icon in your scene or modify it as you wish.

    2) The current Tab/Settings selected now persists and will now reset when managers are opened

    3) Manager windows have been changed to tab type to allow for you to add more then one manager into the same window

    4) Pressing the button to convert a soft target to a target whilst already targetting an entity will now untarget them, i.e press space bar to target and press again to untarget.


    **** Bug Fixes ****

    Bug Fix: Raycast abilities could not be activated on self, this has now been fixed

    Bug Fix: Red text would show on buttons when deleting an effect until the game is next played

    Bug Fix: Example camera demo script no longer collides with abilities, camera will also now stop rotating when in ability before target mode to allow the player to easily select the target or world position to activate the ability on

The miss chance can also be adjusted by ability effects (blind spell etc). Abilities can also be set to never miss ignoring the miss chance setting.

    6) Improved the ability preparing/progress bar so it now more accurately fills letting the player know how long is left to prepare/cast the ability.

    7) The ABC_IEntity class is now partial allowing you to override the methods to easier integrate with your projects which won't get overwritten on new updates

    #### v1.3 ####

    1) Added functionality to randomise the potential targets which are retrieved when the AI system decides who to use abilities on

    to use abilities on

    2) Bug Fix: Fixed an issue where the camera shake would not revert camera back to the correct position

    3) Added the new ABC Animation Runner system which allows you to select animation clips which will play without using Unity's Animator. This means you do not have to set up anything in the Animator to play animations relating to ABC. This will further increase the potential of ABC integrating with other assets.


    #### v1.2 ####


    1) Bug Fix: Scroll abilities with persistent positions now setup correctly if character started game in idle mode

    2) Added Zoom-In functionality to third person additional script

    3) Bug Fix: ABC can now correctly select targets when Game Creator event system is being used

    4) ABC now integrates with Game Creator Asset created by Catsoft Studios. The following integration functionality has been added:

    - Activate Abilities from a Game Creator Action
    - Adjust Game Creator Stats/Attributes
    - Link with Game Creator Health/Mana Attributes
    - Add and Remove Game Creator Status Effects
    - Trigger Game Creator Actions/Conditions from Ability Collisions

    5) Functionality has been added to allow for you to set additional starting positions for an ability - An extra Ability object will be created for each Additional Starting Position - The object is an additional duplicate of the normal Ability object and will operate in the same way - This functionality can be used for example to have 2 fireballs fire from both hands or for melee attacks to have each fist apply damage.

    6) A duration setting has been added for Stop Movement on both Preparing and Initiation - You can now choose to stop movement for a set duration when preparing and initiating. If 0 is defined for the duration then the movement will start again automatically as soon as the preparing/initiating animation has finished

    #### v1.1 ####

    1) Added lock on to third person additional script

    2) Added functionality to save/load the game through the new ABC_SaveManager component

    3) Fixed a bug where the editor would not allow you to select all animator types from the dropdown

    4) Added Ability Activation/Activation Completion Event Calls which allows other scripts to subscribe to ABC and be notified when an ability activates or has completed activating.

    IMPORTANT: Due to the new ABC Save/Load functionality all Unity DataTypes (GameObject, Texture, Image etc) has had to go through a rework so they could be referenced persistently. This allows for the new ABC save/load system to correctly load game data. Due to this any previously set values will be reset once v1.1 is downloaded.

    It is recommend that you do not download this update on projects which have already started unless you do not mind resetting some of the values in ABC like the ability graphics.

    I have been asked if I can create a Discord channel for all things ABC as another avenue for anyone to get in contact so they can provide feedback, suggest roadmap ideas, showcase what they have created, get support and generally have a nice chit-chat.

    I have just created the channel which I will be improving bit by bit over the next coming weeks - for now come in get comfortable and lets talk all things ability and combat :D

    I've been toying with the idea of creating a (old school)-fallout-like, magic-wielding Rabbit-Royale RPG, whatever that may be. In any case, I think your asset would be perfect for that :)

    I am working on Biotopia 3D, which is a open world sandbox RPG.

    One of my main Problems is that that my enemies and animals are still stupid.

    https://forum.unity.com/threads/bio...-free-and-gimme-feedback.509243/#post-4052023

    I am interested in a voucher!

    My usecase would be:

    A script or a prefab where I can set a type like Monster, Carnivore or hermivore. A player property.

    Monsters attack the player always, carnivores if you are too close or directly in their view, hermivores just wander and run away if too close.

    Monsters also attack hermivores sometimes, carnivores attack hermivores sometimes.

    A public property for energy, endurance and mana. Possibility to just wander around, follow Player (or hermivore etc), run away from player or monster etc. Maybe patrol etc.

    And this in a randomly created world with colliders. Maybe waypoints optional, I do not need them. Maybe some navigation id optional, for me it would only be interesing if it worked in a random environment, too. Avoiding obstacles etc.

    May can set lists of animations for standing, attacking, walking running.

    Fit to the ground for animals. etcetc. If I get a voucher and these kind of things are of any interest, I can write more about it and help with testing and Feedback.

    Just been checking out your YouTube videos, looks like you have definitely been working hard on the project. With AI in ABC you can set it up so entities only attack other entities on certain conditions so this is something I feel you will definitely benefit with from reading your description. Good luck for the voucher giveaway :D

    This is amazing, i'd love to see some more melee and archer type combat. I am in the process of putting together a 1 man MMORPG. This would be an amazing asset to add to my project

    Thanks Simpuhl, I will try and put together some more melee and archer type examples in future. ABC is quite flexible so there shouldn't be any reason why you can't create almost any type of melee or archer type combat you want!

    If you have any attacks in mind and not sure if they can be created in ABC then post here and I will let you know if it's possible :D

    Good luck for the voucher giveaway!

    Some type of tactical strike/space laser from above could be interesting. If you watch just 1:00-1:30, there is a representation that kind of works


    The somewhat timeless anime missile barrage could also be interesting and be modded to be just about any type of particle or flying object.


    Continued good luck with your development.

    A little sneak peak into the Save/Load System which will be ready in the next release of ABC (v1.1)

    Easily save the whole scene or just specific game objects and load the data back again with one line of code for example:

    Code (CSharp):
    1.  ABC_SaveSystem.CreateLocalSaveFile(this.saveAllFileName, this.saveAllFilePath, this.key32Char);
    Code (CSharp):
    1.  ABC_SaveSystem.LoadLocalSaveFile(this.saveAllFileName, this.saveAllFilePath, true, true, true, this.key32Char);
    You are able to save and load from local files or generate the save data for you to store and load from a database. You can configure how much of the data is loaded - from just the ABC data to loading everything like the enabled states and transform positions.

    There is also a SaveManager component which is already created to allow you to setup your saving and loading, ready to be placed behind a button click with no coding required.

    Version 1.1 has now been released. Please find the update notes below:

    • Added lock on to third person additional script
    • Added functionality to save/load the game through the new ABC_SaveManager component
    • Fixed a bug where the editor would not allow you to select all animator types from the dropdown
    • Added Ability Activation/Activation Completion Event Calls which allows other scripts to subscribe to ABC and be notified when an ability activates or has completed activating.

    IMPORTANT: Due to the new ABC Save/Load functionality all Unity DataTypes (GameObject, Texture, Image etc) has had to go through a rework so they could be referenced persistently. This allows for the new ABC save/load system to correctly load game data.

    Due to this any previously set values will be reset once v1.1 is downloaded. It is recommend that you do not download this update on projects which have already started unless you do not mind resetting some of the values in ABC like the ability graphics.

    The next version will be focused around integrations with other assets. If you have any in mind you would like to see working with ABC then please do post a reply to let me know.

    Hello.
    Your system looks good.
    I have a question though.
    I have a complex custom stat management system.
    I can not see any delegates or events or virtual members related to stat change (was looking to something OnStatChange)
    How can I use my stat management system along with your package?

    Hi TextusGames,

    Apologies for not replying on here sooner! I only just realized I didn't reply. I know we have since spoken on Discord and I went through the possible options of integrating into your stat management system either by amending the API or using the effect event subscriber component.

    Hope all is well anyway and you had a good festive break!

    Hope everyone is having a great weekend! I have started work on integrating ABC with Game Creator which has been requested by the community.

    Below shows a small demonstration of ABC using Health which has been setup in Catsoft Studios Game Creator Asset: https://assetstore.unity.com/packages/templates/systems/game-creator-89443

    Integration will include linking in with Health/Mana/Stats and applying GC status effects.



    If you have any more ideas of how you want to see ABC integrate with Game Creator then do please let me know :D

    ABC Ability Combat Toolkit integrated with Game Creator … that is a heck of an awesome combo. I was having fun with ABC before the integration and you just took it to another level. Super stoked for this update. Thanks for all your work Mozza!

    Thanks for the kind words Vorokoi :D Super excited to see what you think of the Game Creator Integration and so happy to see you enjoying ABC! I just submitted version 1.2 to the Asset Store which has the Game Creator functionality - will post here as soon as it gets released.

    I will check this out as it might be useful for my game that I am developing with Game Creator. So Thank you for the integration of Game Creator!

    Sounds good to me :D

    The GC integration was really fun to implement. What kind of game are you making?

    The AI in the Dark Souls video was using ABC or it just use the abilities portion of it?

    Also is integrated to be the main controller for GC? Does it function with the inventory, quests, dialogues and stats? Or better yet...you creating your own inventory system?

    Currently ABC integrates with GC in the following way:
    • Activating Abilities using GC Action
    • Triggering Actions/Conditions from Ability Collision (Ability Collision as a new GC Trigger)
    • Using/Adjusting GC Health/Mana
    • Using GC Stats to enhance ABC Effects
    • Modifying GC Stats/Attributes
    • Adding/Removing Status Effects

    So in a nutshell it currently integrates with the main GC Controller and Stats. There is further integration planned down the road but do let me know of any ideas you have :)

    By example do you mean documentation or within the Asset? The Asset comes with a demo scene which has AI setup within it which you can use to learn from or you can find information about the AI settings in the documentation.

    There is no immediate plans of putting inventory at the moment but I can potentially add it to the Roadmap for you. It would probably be faster for me to integrate with inventory Assets also if you have any.

    Version 1.2 has now been released which includes the first phase of integration for Game Creator. Please find the update notes below:

    1) Bug Fix: Scroll abilities with persistent positions now setup correctly if character started game in idle mode

    2) Added Zoom-In functionality to third person additional script

    3) Bug Fix: ABC can now correctly select targets when Game Creator event system is being used

    4) ABC now integrates with Game Creator Asset created by Catsoft Studios. The following integration functionality has been added:

    - Activate Abilities from a Game Creator Action
    - Adjust Game Creator Stats/Attributes
    - Link with Game Creator Health/Mana Attributes
    - Add and Remove Game Creator Status Effects
    - Trigger Game Creator Actions/Conditions from Ability Collisions



    5) Functionality has been added to allow for you to set additional starting positions for an ability - An extra Ability object will be created for each Additional Starting Position - The object is an additional duplicate of the normal Ability object and will operate in the same way - This functionality can be used for example to have 2 fireballs fire from both hands or for melee attacks to have each fist apply damage.



    6) A duration setting has been added for Stop Movement on both Preparing and Initiation - You can now choose to stop movement for a set duration when preparing and initiating. If 0 is defined for the duration then the movement will start again automatically as soon as the preparing/initiating animation has finished

    I unfortunately have yet to try ABC alongside Invector, I have done my best to design ABC so it can sit on it's own and not interfere with other tools but I can't make any promises. However if they don't work together I can add on the roadmap to do some integration work so it can.

    Hope that answers your question but let me know if you have any further queries :)
