I have a script for basic movement that works, but I want to be able to steer the players horizontal movement while midair. I also would like to be able to determine the force or the height of the jump by how long I hold the jump button.
Here's my working movement script so far:
public class Player_movement : MonoBehaviour
public float f_speed;
public float f_jumpSpeed;
public float f_gravity;
private Vector3 v3_moveDirection = Vector3.zero;
private CharacterController controller;
void Awake ()
controller = GetComponent<CharacterController>();
void Update ()
v3_moveDirection = new Vector3(Input.GetAxis("Horizontal"), 0, 0);
v3_moveDirection *= f_speed;
v3_moveDirection.y = f_jumpSpeed;
v3_moveDirection.y -= f_gravity * Time.deltaTime;
controller.Move(v3_moveDirection * Time.deltaTime);

Change your line 14 to: controller = this.GetComponent(); Put this script inside who will make the action of movement.

maybe this script was from an older version?
