Overview

The Aim Component is used to cast a ray from the Aim Origin gameobject to the center of the camera or an assigned Target.

It is commonly used to Aim Weapons, do a Head Look At, or for the Strafing logic.

Requirements

  • This component needs to have an Aim Origin reference.

General

Active

Enable/Disable the Aim Logic. Use this to avoid doing raycasting while the aim component is not used.

Update Mode

Where the Aim Logic will take place, on the Fixed or Late Update cycle.

Aim Side

It's used for planning whether your Camera Rig can be on the Left or Right side of your character when aiming.

It uses the On Aim event to send the value -1 if the camera is on the Left side, 1 if is on the Right side, or 0 if the Amining logic is not Active.

Aim Origin

The Transform object used to determine the origin position of the Aim Ray. Usually the head of the character.

Layer

Which layers the Aim Ray will interact with

Trigger interaction

Will the Aim Ray interact with triggers?

Raycast Radius

If this value is greater than zero, the Aim Ray will be using SphereCast instead of RayCast.

Ray Hits

Increase the precision of the Raycasting logic.

Since I'm using the NonAlloc Version to make faster raycasting, this doesn't always create accurate Hits when the ray touches more than one object. Increasing the hits increases the accuracy.

Smoothness

Lerp value for changing the Ray cast hit position. Lower values, smooth Aiming

References

Target

Replaces the Aim Logic from Aiming with the Camera to Aiming towards a target.

Use Camera

The Aim Target will use a camera to cast a ray from the camera's position

Camera

Reference for the Main Camera

Screen Center

When using a Camera as the Ray Origin. An offset will be added to the center of the screen where the Ray will be cast.

Ignore

Extra Transform Reference to Ignore for the Aim Logic. This is used for example with the Rider when is mounting the horse and the Weapon is Aiming. The Horse is set as the extra transform so Aim Ray does not hit the horse gameobject and its children.

Aim Position

It moves the Transform assigned to this parameter to the Hit Position. It is used to create an assistance to see where the Aim Ray Ends. It also hides this transform when the Aim is not Active.
