I've been at this for nearly three days straight now (16 hours+ daily). Godot transforms are slapping me across the face.
First I wanted to use Mixamo animations in Godot. This was torturous, and through pure trial and error I finally came up with a workflow that succeeded.
Then I got to work on a very simple third-person character controller.
enter code here extends KinematicBody
var curHp : int = 10
var maxHp : int = 10
var damage : int = 1
var gold : int = 0
var attackRate : float = 0.3
var lastAttackTime : int = 0
export var moveSpeed : float = 5.0
export var jumpForce : float = 10.0
export var gravity : float = 15.0
export var upForce: float = 3.0
export var vel : Vector3 = Vector3()
onready var camera = get_node("CameraOrbit")
# Called when the node enters the scene tree for the first time.
pass # Replace with function body.
vel.x = 0
vel.z = 0
var input = Vector3()
input.z -= 1
input.z += 1
input.x -= 1
input.x += 1
input = input.normalized()
var dir = (transform.basis.z * input.z + transform.basis.x * input.x)
vel.x = dir.x * moveSpeed
vel.z = dir.z * moveSpeed
vel.y -= gravity * delta
if Input.is_action_pressed("move_jump") and is_on_floor():
vel.y = jumpForce
#move along the current velocity
vel = move_and_slide(vel, Vector3.UP)
# transform = transform.orthonormalized()
func divideButAvoidZero(divisor, dividend):
if divisor == 0:
return dividend / divisor
It was working well.
I then created four 1 frame animations that rotated (transform) the player model.
I put all four animations into two 1 dimensional blend spaces and then used the add node to combine them with the idle animation.
This worked fine, but after flying around for a bit in the game the animations invert (moving right plays left-leaning animation instead).
Very shortly afterwards the camera movement inverts as well (moving the mouse up makes the camera look down).
I believe that I am unknowingly messing up the transform basis of the character controller, but I don't know how, why or when. I've never been this stuck on anything before.
Does this sound familiar to anyone?
