Creating a Gun Turret for a Game in Unity
Everybody loves that part of a game where you get to control the Big Giant Turret Gun- now it’s your turn to create that experience in Unity! Whether you are planning a Tailgunner style game, Flying Fortress, Mech Suit, Anti-Aircraft Gun, or anything else, this Citizen series has you covered.
What the Unity Game Engine Course Covers:
You will learn how to model, animate, texture, export, and script your turret for use in the Unity 3D game engine. Your final turret will even feature animation-synced firing, smooth-follow rotation, a custom glowing HUD, and many more features. Along the way, you will also learn many very handy game-creation skills such as custom normal maps, emmisive textures, and utilizing the Alpha Channel, optimization, animation, and more.
Once you have everything built and working, take a look at the bonus tutorials to advance your game even further!
