Transport 2023: Introducing Multi-Point Movement in Virtual Spaces

Table of contents

What is Transport?

Transport is a cutting-edge component designed to add the capability of “multi-point movement” to objects in virtual environments. By applying the Transport component to an object (referred to as object A), users can designate various flag points (like A point, B point, etc.) on the terrain. The object will then autonomously navigate between these flag points, creating a dynamic movement pattern.

How to Use Transport?

Setting Up Transport

  1. Select the Asset: Choose from the left panel (See attached image ①).
  2. Place Assets on Terrain: Position your selected assets on the terrain (See attached image ②).
  3. Access Component List: When you select the asset on the terrain, a component list is displayed on the right panel (See attached image ③).
  4. Choose Transport Component: From the right panel.
  5. Set Moving Speed: Adjust the speed of the object using the slider.
  6. Activate ‘Add Flag’: Enable this to set points for the moving asset.
  7. Placing a Flag: Left-click on the terrain or use two fingers on the trackpad to set a flag (point).
  8. Removing a Flag: Hover over a flag to see “remove” text, then left-click or use two fingers on the trackpad to delete it.
  9. Enable ‘Turn Around’ Feature: This allows the object to change its angle when moving along each flag (point).
  10. Test Your Setup: Click the test button in the upper right corner to confirm the settings of Transport in a test play.

11. Observing the Test Play: During the test, the object will start moving along the flags (points) you set.

Transport introduces a novel way to animate objects within virtual environments, adding a layer of realism and interactivity. This tool is invaluable for creators looking to enhance the dynamism and engagement of their virtual spaces.
