    Hey guys! great to have Unity cookie online, but the files I downloaded from this page are the files of : “working with _characterControllers”
    Seems there’s a little mess with the files on download 😉
    Cheers :-)

    This “F” Key To Zoom to my object…. THANKS FOR EXPLAINING THIS TO ME D:

    I was having sooo many issues with object selection and camera movement because I Zoomed too much or Panned too much. It started to get Ridiculous!

    But thanks! The “F” key is now my best friend XD..

    I remember messing around with this some time ago. Just made a simple ramp for a ball to roll down and knock over some cubes. I didn’t know about the physics materials. Is it possible to make your own custom ones or to revert them back to default after you’ve messed with the settings?

      You can change the properties of the physics materials however you like, and you can re-import the physics materials assets to reset the default values that they all started with.

      That was strange, but I have fixed this and you should be able to view. A citizen membership is not required to watch this video. 😉

    Hey guys, I just was browsing through your site and noticed that you have physics listed twice in the drop down menu. I thought I would give you a heads up if you haven’t noticed.
