Join Alan Thorn for an in-depth discussion in this video Moving objects, part of Cert Prep: Unity Fundamentals (2017).
- [Instructor] In this movie, I want to enter…the exciting world of game objects and components…by considering a practical example.…In particular, I want to take this Platform object here…and make it move along by itself,…carrying along the hero character.…This is a pretty straightforward platform game mechanic,…and I want to get started at achieving that in this movie.…And we're going to continue and complete that exercise…in the next movie.…So, to get started at creating this, I want to, for example,…just demonstrate exactly the sort of behavior that I want.…
So, if I select the Platform object…and then I Shift + Select the player character here…so that I'm selecting two objects at the same time,…this object and this object,…if I move the object along, you can see that,…from the Inspector, it's moving along on the zed axis.…I want this to move slowly along on its own steam here…and carry the player character along with it.…Now, to achieve this,…several things need to be put in place.…The first thing that I want to create is…
