Join Dan Violet Sagmiller for an in-depth discussion in this video Building follows mouse, part of Build a Real-Time Strategy Game with Unity 5.
- [Voiceover] In modern RTS games when creating a building…an outline of that building typically follows the mouse…around to help you find the location to place it.…We'll add that same ability for a transparent building…to follow around the mouse.…To do that, let's go to the scripts folder…and I'm going to right click and create a new C sharp script…and I'm going to call it Find Building Site.…I'm going to edit Find Building Site now.…All I need from this is the update,…so I'll delete the start.…This model behavior intends to be attached…to a ghost shell of a command base…or some other building.…
The idea is that this will tell it…to follow the mouse around.…In order to do that we're going to need to find…out exactly where on the terrain our mouse is hitting it.…We've already created a method for that.…So we'll use it.…var tempTarget = rtsmanager.Current.ScreenpointToMapPosition…and we pass in the mouse position, input.mouseposition…Now if we don't have a value from this…then nothing to do but if tempTarget.HasValue = false…
