I have a quick question for you! I've looked around the forum, but I wasn't able to find a clear solution.
I need to limit the rotation of the OVR object inside Unity and this is due to a very linear purpose:
-The player's POV is inside a power armour with a fixed helmet. His in-game body is also locked into position. Movement rotation is part of the gameplay and is handled by the controls.
So, allowing the player to rotate the POV beyond the character's neck limit would be silly (since it would be an unnatural movement on the game's context) and rotating the body along with the head movement kind of messes with our gameplay.
What I needed was to allow about 80º to 90º worth of rotation, enough for the player to see a bit of the helmet's inside and realize he can't look no further. The same logic could be applied to limit flexion radious to about 60º to 70º, again enabling the player to take a glimpse of the helmet's interior on the upwards and downwards direction.
Under the context of my game, this would be a strong immersion enabler, since it would perfectly convey the "armour confinement" feeling I need.
Now, I've seen a couple of approaches to this problem, some messier than others, but I was looking for a "proper" way to tackle this instead of mutilating/refactoring my way through the OVR utilities code.
Can anyone help me out or point me at the right direction?
What you have is a typical cockpit setup. Just model the mech helmet with a fixed view port. When Im in the mech and I look to the right I see the right view edge of the port, further to the right I might see some useful controls, indicators, maybe a photo of my girl... use what you previously perceived as a limitation to become a cool feature.
