Player won't turn with mouse rotation, only the camera will - that'll stay that way. Player will only turn once you walk or fire.
You're right about the collision, it's still very basic and many objects are still missing proper colliders.

It might just be the turn radius, but something feels really awkward about turning the character.

Yeah, unity has all the tools you'd need. There's a free version which you can use even commercially I think, but it doesn't have some features the pro version has (some I found important enough to buy it).
In order to export for PS3, XBOX and iOS, you'll need a license in any way.

I am working on a large exploration based based fps but have been struggling with which engine to work with. Your environments seem close in scale to what I'm looking for so I'd like to try out the unity engine.
The question I'm asking you is what programs, other than the unity engine/editors, are you using? I'm just trying to get a gauge of what programs I need vs. what I have. Thanks!
Keep up the great work!!

I'm mainly using Cinema4D for the 3D work and final cut for the sound editing and photoshop for textures. That's it.

Thanks for the fast reply!

Sorry, didn't spot your new posts. Yeah, 3D work is done outside of unity. Unity isn't for modeling, it's the place where you put your pieces together. :)

After learning a lot about unity, about coding in general and trying out different things (some I liked, some I don't) I'll actually be spending the next weeks back on the drawing board and re-evaluate some of my concepts. Then I'll flesh out this "idea" into a solid, handleable and clear direction and then I'll push forward to develop it to that point.
So there won't be much updates on the game for the next few weeks. At least nothing that's showable in pictures.

Any time you want you could probably pull the plug and say its done, even now, maybe. - Just release it as an fps, easy.
Me - I wish I was this close to finishing something... bah I can never get off the drawing board.

I don't have a finished game though. I have a prototype with lots of ideas. Given, you can play it already for 30 minutes or so and do some quests etc and a basic shooter mechanism, but it's not what I have in mind as a final product. I'd like this to be more then that. And I'll try to make sure it will be.

I'm changing the combat system from "Arcade Shooter" to "Tactical Shooter".
For that I'm experiementing with new techniques. Currently, the system works similar to a roundbased and skill/itemdependent AP system, but it's in real time and instead of AP's all your actions take a certain amount of time to perform. A quickshot (LMB) is fast but less accurate then an aimed shot (RMB). Some weapons will offer special abilities like forcing an enemy into cover, stunning him for a couple of seconds etc.
Also, it's now possible to give context sensitive orders to your team members like (attack, heal, build defensive turrents) etc.
Feels much better then it did before! Lots of things to add yet still.

Pathfinding is still above my coding skills, but I'll definately add a proper waypoint system to it in the final version so they won't get stuck by crates (or the player). :)
