    I really like the strategic control, was trying to do a top down controller for pc in 1.4 but was horrible! After doing a lit bit of a play through I realised some of the really good stuff in it, from squad commands to movement of the single character. Still has some issues, but I would have to run some test scenes with it before I go poking holes :) Love the new update.

    Zombie AI or integration with EmeraldAI is the only thing keeping me from purchasing this asset.

    Also is there a pickup system for the weapons where you can search and find weapons to use or do you just spawn with them already on the player?

    Looking forwards to these possible improvements!

    Ok so I took the plunge and bought this Third Person Cover Controller.

    I'm having issues getting my own 3d character working with this cover system, and there is minimal included documentation which I found pretty disturbing, on top of that the menu option "CoverShooter >> Find and setup player" seems to do absolutely nothing?

    I've followed the video provided here:


    However it doesn't seem to match the 1.5 update exactly so some parts are fuzzy.

    Mt character moves very slowly, tips over if I attempt to roll, doesn't aim, doesn't shoot, isn't recognized by the AI enemies (demo scene) and doesn't switch weapons.

    The lack of documentation has left me a little baffled as the quality of this asset is purely seen as long as I'm using the standard cowboy model, however I don't want to use the standard cowboy model.

    Am I missing one of the steps that hasn't been explained in the video for 1.4 character setup?

    I really wish the documentation matched the quality of the actual asset as that's probably going to be my only gripe here.
    I just can't figure out how to setup my own characters!

    FYI I'm using the Modern Human 1 models from the asset store which does not have facial animation.

    Needs documentation!

    Can someone here or a developer of the asset please assist me on getting this working?
    It really feels like I'm 'swinging in the dark' at a solution and not hitting any results.

    Thank you so much!

    It's very similar you just need to add third person input script.
    and add guns like in video 2 and 3.
    anyway today I will record a new tutorial for 1.5.

    Goodluck

    I agree on the documentation, setting up the player controller was quite difficult to get right at first in 1.4, but once you know how/what to shift over from the cowboy model it becomes easier, just tedious. However setting up the players in the new strategy scene wasn't too hard.

    Hi @EduardasFunka , I've sent you an email a few days ago, please if you could reply. I had screenshots in it so not sure if it has made its way into spam/junk mail?

    I'm a website developer with over 20 years experience turned game dev, you could create a ticket system fairly quick and easy using a CMS (Content Management System) like Drupal.

    I'd be willing to step up on this part if it meant this awesome asset becoming even better, let me know.

    We made a plan for the summer.

    Patch 1.5.5 (Summer)
    Pistol and shield animations (done)
    Shotgun animations (WIP)
    Rifle melee animation (done)
    Pistol melee animation (done)
    Recoil 2.0 recoil affects the shape of crosshair, different weapons use different crosshairs, more recoil control
    Pistol and shield work only when walking and idle - can't take covers, can't run. Activated with a "5" key, moves out of cover.
    Shotgun. Works the same as rifle only kept at a lower height. Fires multiple bullets per shot.
    Animations for different melee attack responses.
    Fix AI behavior on high unreachable platforms or their attacks of characters on such platforms.
    Fix AI sometimes using covers wrong (staying at a side that's not protecting, etc).
    Redo the way IK setup works. Prevent bugs if the setup is wrong or skipped. Automatic chain setup.
    Stop and start animations for movement.

    Patch 1.6
    Double wielding pistol animations. (WIP)
    Melee attacks. By default activated with an "F" key.
    AI can use melee attacks. Ability to plan and implement approach and punching.
    Baseball bat animations
    Implement melee-only weapons. Baseball bat.
    Locomotion improvements, ragdoll Foot IK etc.. inspired by advanced locomotion system v3 unreal.
    Animations that may be needed when implementing locomotion improvements.

    Patch 1.7 (Autumn)
    Double wielding.
    Patron input?

    No need for a cms to make a ticket system. You can use open source ticket system like osticket

    http://osticket.com/

    even Mr. Robot uses that ;-)

    @EduardasFunka:
    Please, consider adding a generic action-behaviour for AI of the type: "Go to this point". This would be very useful.

    But isn't it restricted to that strategic mode (mouse input)? Is there any function (go to x,y,z) for general purposes to be used by code?

    In regards to the melee, not sure if this is in the scope of the planned melee feature but it would be really useful to be able to input a number of melee attacks and then choose a probability percentage for the AI to "choose" their attack. This way if someone wants only 1 melee attack (eg. pistol whip or buttstroke) for a shooter style character they would add this and set the percentage to 100%; but for a brawler character they could have a knife stab at 40%, a knife slash at 50% and a knife overhead at 10% for example, each with their own animations. There would be much more flexibility then and the player would not always be blocking/avoiding the same attack. I'm not asking for the animations here, just the functionality to have multiple attacks.

    Hello, I got a problem again.

    This problem I already solved with 1.4 but occur in 1.5



    As you can see in the video when I right click or "Zoom" the aiming IK seems to not working. In 1.4 I solved this by re-rigging model on "Mixamo" as you do but it not work on 1.5. What should I do?

    - I notice that "if" character mesh has more than 1 prefab such as including helmet, bag, accessories, etc. not just "body" this thing will happen. this is the experimental result when I cut off other pieces.




    Thank you.

    Edit:
    - I fixed it by using some kind of delay script for the other components or push the body mesh to the top, it works fine but I think this is not the right way to do it because it should be supported in the first place.

    I've been working on solving this for a few days now. When my character takes cover and aims around corners on it's left the aiming IK gets completely twisted?

    I originally though it was an error on my part so I recreated and tested again with the exact same result, then I recreated the controller again just to triple check and I am still having this issue on my character?



    UPDATED

    I've been going through the inspector trying to fix this and I believe I've narrowed this down to the IK section in the inspector. When I have IK [Enabled] I get the weird twisting as shown in the first video, when IK is [Disabled] my character is able to aim properly around corners to his left but the weapon is facing the wrong way.

    You ever think about adding helper wizards?
    Like, at the top menu:

    "CoverShooter" -> "Create Player"
    The user supplies the 3d humanoid model, and all the scripts and default settings are applied.

    "CoverShooter" -> "Create Enemy"
    The user supplies the 3d humanoid model, and all the scripts and default settings are applied.

    "CoverShooter" -> "Setup Scene"
    The scene has every additional added so it can function, like the UI, sound component, etc.

    Hi nice,
    You can share your files with the community that work with our asset and tutorials how to set up. Just don't make our code public.
    Goodluck! really good progress.

    Thank you :)
    If anyone wants to add ragdolls on death here is how .


    First follow this video on how to add a ragdoll :



    then Add this code to the CharacterMotor script :
    public Rigidbody body ;

    IEnumerator Stoptheforce(float waitTime)
    {
    yield return new WaitForSeconds(waitTime);
    body.velocity = Vector3.zero;
    body.angularVelocity = Vector3.zero;
    }
    private IEnumerator coroutine;
    public void ApplyForce( )
    {
    var heading = this.GetComponent<CoverShooter.CharacterHealth> ().Lasthit ;

    body.AddForce( heading );
    coroutine = Stoptheforce(0.2f);
    StartCoroutine(coroutine);

    }


    then on CharacterHealth add those lines :
    First anywhere add :
    public Vector3 Lasthit;

    then edit public void Deal to :



    public void Deal(float amount , Hit hit = new Hit() )
    {
    if (Health <= 0 || !IsTakingDamage)
    return;
    Health -= amount;
    if (Health <= 0) {
    Lasthit = hit.Attacker.transform.position;
    SendMessage ("OnDead");



    }
    }

    and change onhit to :

    public void OnHit(Hit hit)
    {


    Deal(hit.Damage ,hit);
    }


    Lastly the Ragdoll Colliders will messup the Covershooter system , and damage wont apply so to fix this add to CharacterMotor script :
    public List<Collider> rigColliders;

    and on Awake or Start add this line :


    foreach (Collider col in rigColliders){
    col.enabled = false;
    }

    and To get them back again when the enemy dies edit the last lines of to updateAnimator() :


    else
    {
    _animator.SetBool("IsDead", true);
    _animator.SetBool("IsUsingWeapon", false);
    }

    change it To :
    else
    {
    _animator.SetBool("IsDead", true);
    _animator.SetBool("IsUsingWeapon", false);
    _animator.enabled = false;

    foreach (Collider col in rigColliders){
    col.enabled = true;
    }
    ApplyForce ();
    }

    Results : Not perfect :/





    Don't forget to add the Rigidbody of the spine or hips or the main Rigidbody from covershooter
    and the rigcolliders in that list .
    if anyone knows how to make the force with the same direction as the bullet please feel free to fix my bad script

    Fixed with your character not fixed with others we have. there are some strange bones architectures that unity support as humanoids.

    so far I have had that same ik when aiming to the side of cover with every humanoid I have used outside of the cowboy. Including the popular synty models! It seems strange but then again I also had to use an extra empty child object on the right hand to get the weapon alignment working properly. Might actually be something worth looking into if it is so widespread a problem. When I get some spare time I can work up a private video to show you what i mean and hopefully assist you with figuring it out.

    edit: actually, having a look at your new tutorial videos, I don't recall changing the ikcover points from the pistol into the player controller, I wonder if that is what's causing the muddled up hands! I will experiment with this later and report back so that anyone else having the issue might get a potential fix. Good job on the new tutorials btw :)

    About the IK bugs related to aiming and hands-weapon position, present in 1.5 update, I don't understand why was changed something was not broken.
