    Looks very promosing! I'm in the market for something like this. When do you think this will be up in the store?
    Also; seeing you have IK on board, any chance you can do climbing and rolling foward?

    HI,

    It looks very very interesting;). Adding animations seems easy. Looks like a great third P controller template for cheap.
    Is the price gonna increase in the future?

    cheers:)

    Third Person Character Engine is a really most powerful platform and it is not a cheaper analog of other assets, as we have already said, this is only the starting price at the time of release.

    It seems so good. However, for the camera, I want to use ootii's Camera Controller. So it can work with that?

    The Third Person Character Engine does not have native support for ootii's Camera Controller, but Third Person Character Engine is very modular and I think it will not be difficult to connect the ootii's Camera Controller. If you want to connect them you can write to us and we will help you.

    With the release of the new update, the pricing policy and distribution policy will changed.
    Now Third Person Character Engine, Third Person Character Engine Multiplayer and Third Person Character Engine Mobile it's a separated asset packages. Which can be purchased separately.

    Third Person Character Engine (standard version) already include him-self free upgrade until TPC Engine Multiplayer and TPC Engine Mobile. However you can buy TPC Engine Multiplayer and TPC Engine Mobile separately.
    This is done in order to more accurately concentrate on each asset separately and get a higher quality.

    In the next update 1.02f1 we want to change input controller on default Unity input controller. Because according to numerous reports, current input controller quite difficult and you constantly have questions about how to use it.
    We will not remove its support it will continue to be supplied in the package and if desired you will be able to enable it.

    In the new update we removed Custom Input manager from package and switched to default Unity Input Manager.
    Now if you want to add new input just add it standard input manager.

    Are the AI from your first person shooter multiplayer and this asset compatible? Can I import this controller into a first person multiplayer project and use it?

    Just bought the multiplayer version! Will share my experience later. Thanks for the support here.

    Edit;

    Ok got it loaded, kinda lost. Read the documentation, doesn't seem to be much help with multiplayer.

    I think the Input manager script is not loading. I get an error saying it cant be loaded. I do not have the option to create a new input manager (like in documentation) in the file menu. Its not available.

    Will keep tinkering

    Yes of course you can change default input manager in TPC Engine. Just see Standalone Input Manager.cs, you can make your own in his image.

    We will soon release an update to fix this bug, but you can fix it now:
    Open MinDrawer.cs -> add this line in top
    using MinAttribute = UnityEngine.PostProcessing.MinAttribute;

    Hi,

    I want to like this asset so badly, but I am now 7 days into trying to figure it out and I am no closer to a working character.

    I have the $21.99 third person engine asset, imported fresh.

    I go to "Create > Character" and "Create > Camera". I dare NOT choose "Empty Character" as suggested in the manual, for at that point there's so much stuff to know how things are hooked up together it's a bit crazy and the documentation does not specify what all is needed to make things happen.
    But even still here, with a minor things to hook up, my character does not move, he's just stuck in a T-Pose. After 7 days.

    However, I notice that the robot mesh in the demo scene is all one mesh. My character is made up of several meshes, and that's on purpose for how this game im working on is going to work. But when it comes down to it, it doesn't seem like I can assign more than one mesh to the "skeleton" at a time.

    On top of this, when I hit play, a bazillion error messages flood the console. I wish I had the error in front of me, it looked like some kind of calculation exception.


    1. Am I not able to just create the skeleton in Blender and use my own skin weights? Must I absolutely have to use these unity capsules?
    2. I really recommend sitting down and hammering out the documentation. Because this asset is incredibly confusing and the documentation having "Coming Soon" sections on the most important parts is embarrassing for an asset asking for $21usd (which to me was $41CAD). I bought this asset to save time and make use of some nice features like the IK, and I've gotten nowhere with it after a full week of tinkering and I'm getting really frustrated with it

    Using Unity 2018.3

    I Just bought the asset, everything works quite good till now. at the beggining i had to correct some words in the code but then it was ok.

    I have a different problem..

    it seems to be running VERY laggy on my computer.. i havea GAIA terrain and this asset. nothing more. and the performance is really really bad.

    Why is that?

    my pc:
    i7 8700k
    gtx 1070
    16GB ram
