Upgrade Notes

From 1.0.04

  • The modular firearms have had a number of tweaks and changes that any custom guns will need updating to reflect:
    • Recoil, shooters, aimers and explosions have changed. Refer to the documentation and look at the demo weapons for details.
    • Custom swappable inventory weapons will need their categories resetting.
    • Custom explosive grenades and projectiles will need to be switched to the new explosion system.

From 1.0.03

  • Firearms handling has been replaced with recoil handler modules. You will need to add a SpringRecoilHandler behaviour to any custom firearms (you can do this from the ModularFirearm component’s inspector).
  • All firearm aimer modules have been switched to vector offsets instead of transform proxies. You can drag the original transform proxy onto the “From Transform” property on the inspector to generate offset values from that.
  • The inventory and character HUD items now require an IPlayerCharacterWatcher based component in their parent heirarchy such as the SoloPlayerCharacterEventWatcher behaviour. You can add this to the “HUD” gameobject on the canvas, or if you are using the NeoFPS HUD setups as is, you can find a new “HUD” prefab in the same folder as the individual hud element prefabs.
  • All firearm scripts have now been moved into the NeoFPS.ModularFirearms namespace. If you have any scripts that reference these, they will need updating.

From 1.0.02

  • The FpsSoloCharacter no longer handles health management internally. You will need to add a BasicHealthManager behaviour to any custom characters.
