Android motion controls... - Posted on: 12/22/2018   [Uncategorized]



I worked more on the "fly-around" motion controls.

I had a couple issues...

When rotating more than one axis, the rotation becomes unstable. This isn't news to me, I encountered the same problem when I first tried to make flight controls. For a simple solution, I rotate the parent object and camera x-axis and y-axis independently. The motion isn't as fluent or natural as I want, but it works and is easy to control.

The other issue, is with the sensitivity, mainly on the X axis. Basically, there's only a small range where motion is stable... for example, if you don't hold the device perfectly center, movement starts to drift quickly. That's good for response speed, but makes it a little difficult to find a stable position. Not sure how to address this just yet...
