Hi, I've been looking for a scrip that creates a laser from the characters gun. The game is in Top-down view and so i don't want a cursor or anything i just want a laser to go from the specific character point(Maybe an object that beams out the laser forward of the character?). However, I managed to make a laser with the class LineRenderer, but... I wasn't able to get it to follow the character while he was turning or even get it too look right since it's "glowing". I want a red and transparent straight line to go forward.
So to define exactly what i'm looking for i'll list it nicely:
(- and can be turned off by a button click)
Nor should it continue forward for all eternity either, the line length should be editable. Could this be done by using some kind if sprite? How?
I know its much to ask for but i've been looking everywhere for this!:shock: Would be nice if this could be shared with the Unity3D community since all i've found is people who are looking for the exact same thing.
Ps: Scripting isn't my strong side so be nice & explain carefully!

I have a script where I'm doing something like this, but with several lines. Ingore the 'first line' part of the script, just read 'laser'. I should've edited but.. I'm lazy. ;)
Attach this to an empty gameobject which is childed to your gun. Make sure the z-axis is pointing 'character forward'.
