    Here is one of my nodes you can download. I have listed it in a format that hopefully everyone posting a node here will use. If there need to be edits or changes to the format, please let me know. It would be great if we could keep the listings standardized.
    ====================================
    Price(FREE or PAID):
    FREE (if PAID there should be link to an another site to pay and download below)
    Node Name: Free Move w/Camera Follow - Rate Turn
    Type of Node(Content,Controls,Movement,Actions,Advanced): Movement
    Description: This node both allows a character to move around your 3D scene in all directions, with Camera Follow turned on it takes on a first-person perspective and the camera follows all the movements of the character. I have now added the option to have the character to continue to rotate depending on your mouse/finger position. There's also a new option called Max Turn Angle. You will not use this in most cases. It limits the tilt of the character in the Z axis if he's going up and down hills, or flying...or....
    Special Instructions: Ability to turn on and off Camera Follow with attribute. Turn on or off rate turn for different turing behavior.

    Most of what you want can be accomplished right now, but it would take a lot of JS programming to achieve, so if you're not currently a programmer, I would say it would be very hard to accomplish. The one big thing that's missing right now in BB3 that you need is the ability to have multiple controls available on different parts of the screen. I don't know what the plans are for this, but I certainly hope it's coming. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

    I don't think there's anyway to do it now with a button, but it's coming. The problem now is there's no communication between the UI and the game play. They are working on a solution right now to have nodes in the UI layer that I presume will be able to communicate with the 3D World, which would likely solve your problem. I don't know how much of that will be in B4 but I know they're trying to get it in. There's also a new option called Max Turn Angle. You will not use this in most cases. It limits the tilt of the character in the Z axis if he's going up and down hills, or flying...or....

    I uploaded a new version of this node that gives you the option of a rate turn. This allows you to hold one mouse/finger position and the turn will continue at that rate until you move your mouse/finger.

    Hi Laylon,
    How you want it to act is exactly how it should be acting. It's really hard to tell what might be wrong without seeing it. First, can you share the bbdoc? If not, take a screen capture of the node editor showing the free move node connected to your character, with the free mode selected so its attributes show on the right.

    This is amazing! Opens up a lot of possibilities. I wonder, would it be possible to only have the character move forward when the screen is touched? This way you could touch to move forward and steer and stop when lifting your finger.

    Hi nclark,
    Yes, that could definitely be done....but you'll have to know coding of course. It shouldn't be a huge job depending on your experience level.
