A Quick Way To Solve a Problem With Unity Game Programming


A good way to solve unity game programming
Unity Game Design is a platform to design games. It is a very huge platform which is used by many big organisations for game design. Companies such as Disney, Lego, Electronic Arts, Microsoft, NASA, Nickelodeon, Square Enix, Ubisoft, Obsidian, Insomniac, and Warner Bros totally depend on tools and technologies of Unity. It is a complete platform for designing and constructing both 2D and 3D games. But it is specialised in making of 2D games. Unity Game Design makes you to completely bring every single detail in action, develop and optimize the games, engage the audience and achieve success commercially.

The Designing and Development process involved

Unity Game Designer is the best platform for designing and making the figures come to move. In the world of Unity Game Designer, the basic purpose of it is to design the characters and make the animated objects into motion in a 3D environment. The input of the character comes totally from the vector algebra in which we consider X and Y coordinate in which we want to move the character. The animated object is also provided with a force which makes it be standing on the floor while moving. We really need to take care about the coordinates of the objects so as to avoid collisions. But if collisions occur, it would result in a big disaster for the developers. It is really disheartening to know that OverlapSpheres is the only solution to avoid a collision or if it occurs is used to manage the collision. OverlapSpheres deals manually with the problem of collisions.

The different types of colliders provided by Unity Game designer

Unity 5 provides four different types of colliders:

  1. SphereCollider
  2. BoxCollider
  3. CapsuleCollider 
  4. MeshCollider

There are two different methods for correcting collisions:-

  1. Correct the overlapping colliders and force them to be outside each other.
  2. Avoiding collisions at the initial stage.
Among both the methods to correct collisions, It is preferable to correct the overlapping colliders and force them to be outside each other as it will create a different environment and stop them in any way from collisions. It would ensure that the animated object is always outside the collider no problem from where it came from. 

To correct the overlapping problem we first need to find the closest point on the collider and place the object next to it using the Overlap Sphere. The closest point would be found out mathematically in each case.

The additional designs/ Reasons why animation is exciting youngsters:-

There are a lot of additional design features that are added in the Unity Game Design like it has gravity information, it can jump, sliding in slopes, velocity tracker and detection of ground.

Reasons why animation has become exciting for youngsters:-
  1. Animated Advertisements are very exciting.
  2. Animated Advertisements are very enjoyable.
  3. Animated videos are easy to understand.
  4. The animated advertisement is modernized.
  5. The animated advertisements are memorable.

Summary of Unity Game Design:-

Unity Game Design is the best platform for creating beautiful and amazing 2D and 3D designs. In the game of world where creating 3D space in the focus of every game but one who knows how to control a character is the King in today's world. The controller of the character is the heart of the game and is very important for the successful working of the game. It takes very long to think about how to control a character as all of the characters actions are need to be defined.

8 secrets of iphone
8 Secrets of Iphone
The iPhones from Apple are gadgets full of surprises. With numerous hidden tricks and features, you can every day enjoy something new in this device. Whether you have purchased a new iPhone today or have an older version, sure you would not be using it to the fullest.

To make sure you can enjoy using your iPhone to the fullest, our Iphone App Developer have disclosed some amazing hidden secrets about it.

Here are some incredible iPhone secrets that sure would amaze you!

Location Based Reminders

iPhone comes with Siri, voice activated personal assistant that is used to set time-based reminders. But do you know that you can set location-based reminders too.

If you haven’t used this feature till date, go ahead with it. All you need to do is generate a contact card with your information on it, including your address, name, relationship with the concerned person and more.

With location-based reminders, you just have to specify the task and define your location, and you will be notified for the same.

Screen Recording

If your screenshot album is already filled with thousands of Instagram pics, memes, or WhatsApp messages, then the new iOS 11 offers you a rich feature. This feature allows you to carry screen recordings, which you can share with others.

You can record a tutorial video even when you are on SnapChat or Facetime. To use screen recording, you need to go to Settings>Control Center>Customize Controls and click add ‘Screen Recording’ to the include list. Your new feature is now ready for access, and you just have to press the access button whenever you wish to use it.

Turn Your Favorite eBooks into Audio Books

The ‘Speak Screen’ option is another secret thing about your iPhone that is absolutely wonderful. With this feature, your iPhone is able to read aloud any text on the screen.

Though it was introduced for seeing impaired, it is an excellent way to turn your eBook into an Audiobook. So, when you are late from work or want to relax your eyes but still do not want to miss your interesting next chapter, just turn the Speak Screen mode on. Then any application you would swipe you would be able to listen to the contents.

This feature works for articles, notes, email, and other content too!

‘Emergency SOS’

While your iPhone includes an option to lock down and get a hotline to the police, one amazing thing is the new ‘Emergency SOS’ feature.

This feature allows you to meet an emergency situation with just five taps on the screen, while the phone remains locked. Once you are done, a siren sound would prompt out before dialing the common emergency number in your country.

Also, you can set up a shortcut to dial emergency services on your phone, rather than getting them dialed automatically. Also, you can add important numbers to your emergency list that will be sent a message with your present location in case of an emergency.

The Hidden Trackpad

Many times it happens, you are composing a note, email, or message and you have to change something before saving or sending it. But we don’t have any such option.
However, your iPhone serves you with a brilliant feature where you just have to press and hold the keyboard, and the cursor will automatically transform into a trackpad similar to a mouse.
You just have to drag the cursor to the place where you want to make the changes or highlight text and then switch back to keyboard mode.

QR Code Scanner

There were times when you have to download a poorly developed third-party app. But the iOS 11 eases this task. It is because the phone comes with a QR Code Scanner built right into the camera app.

You just have to open the camera app, point to QR code and click on the drop-down notification to activate it. Whether you need to add code to contact details or use it promptly to connect to a Wi-Fi network or create a shortcut to a webpage, it is useful for all sorts of purposes.

Add Special Effects in Messages

With the introduction of iOS 10, Apple offers a range of new screen effects in messages like confetti, fireworks, lasers, and balloons to focus on the tone of what you wish to say.
The great thing is that the new iOS 11 offers two more screen effects – ‘Spotlight’ that shines light beam around the message, and ‘Echo’ that repeats the message in flurry text across your screen.
You can add effects by holding down the send button and tap the screen to the top and swiping it left or right to select the desired effect.

3D Touch

Last but not the least 3D touch is another feature exclusive to iPhone user. This feature allows you to do more in less time. Just press down on the app notification or icon, and you will see shortcuts to take advantage of.

For example, hold and press the camera icon from your iPhone’s home screen and you can select to record video, take selfies, shoot slow-motion video, and more.
Additionally, you can reply an iMessage even when the phone is locked.

Final Words

These are not the only secrets about iPhone. You can even lower torchlight, check signal strength, record phone calls, and take a picture while your iPhone is locked. If you want to know about all such hidden secrets of your iPhone, then you must contact an iPhone app developer that can help you unleash the best potentials of your wonderful iPhone.

Ten Amazon Shopping Tips and Tricks You Must Know


Ten Amazon Shopping Tips And Tricks
“There are two kinds of companies: Those that work to try to charge more and those that work to charge less. We will be the second”- Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon

Is your favorite lipstick out of stock? Is a particular item not available for sale in your country? 
Nothing to fear as Amazon practically has you covered. The company’s vast inventory makes it possible for it to be a goldmine for anything and everything. If you cannot find a particular item in your local retail store, chances are Amazon has it in stock making online shopping the perfect alternative for shoppers who prefer the convenience as well as the accessibility. Despite its popularity, there are many tips, tricks and a handful of shopping hacks that even the most seasoned shoppers are unaware of. Though Amazon may be a jungle, albeit in a metaphorical sense, some areas of the website are still vastly unexplored, and this article will assist you in navigating these uncharted paths by providing some tips and tricks. 

1) Prime Benefits 

If you routinely shop at Amazon, then you should sign up for Amazon Prime, which provides a free two-day shipping to the contiguous U.S. As shipping can get notoriously exorbitant, this can sweeten the deal for you and make your shopping endeavors hassle-free and much more affordable. Apart from the free shipping, you get access to more than a million songs for free via Prime Music, more than five hundred thousand e-books in the Kindle Owner’s Lending Library, more than forty thousand videos and TV shows and half-hour head starts on select lightning deals. 

2) Do not pay for shipping 

If you are not a prime member, having your purchased items shipped for free is still possible. Do this by ordering $35 or more of eligible items. 

3) Make a Wish 

Amazon’s wish list functions like a bridal registry for just about anyone and functions roughly the same way. It allows users to select whatever items they want and desire to receive on any special occasions. 

4) Personal Amazon Shoppers 

Sometimes, we just do not have to scour Amazon’s websites for hours just to find the best deals. This is what sites like Jungle Deals and Steals, Online Price Alerts and The Tracktor are for. They do the dirty work for us and find services such as deal alerts, notable price drops and price tracking depending on the site. 

5) Pay the lowest price 

Suppose you are ready to check out your order, but are unsure if you are getting the best price. If this is the case, use the PriceJump tool at Savings.com. Simple paste the Amazon URL and the tool will compare the cost with the price tags at other online merchants. 

6) Discounts for individuals with tots

One laudable feature Amazon has is Amazon Mom, a membership with advantageous perks for people with kids. This membership gives members twenty percent off diapers, a fifteen percent discount for completing a baby registry and discounts and deals from time to time. 

7) Discounts for students 

Students are not left out either and as Amazon offers a membership catering to students’ needs which is free for six months. A caveat, though, after six months the student will automatically be enrolled in Prime. 

8) Do not pay retail 

Amazon has its own coupons or similarly, if you do not want to pay the retail price, you can simply type “Amazon” into the search boxes of sites such as Savings.com, RetailMeNot, and FatWallet.com. These websites offer you percent-off, free shipping, and free-gift-with-purchase codes. 

9) Money back guarantee 

If you bought an item from Amazon, which goes on sale within a week from your date of purchase, you could get the difference refunded. However, if you are just feeling buyer’s remorse, you can utilize Amazon’s generous return policy. Consider that this does not cover every single item (The site indicates many can be returned not all). 

10) Gold Box Deals offer discounts 

These include heavily discounted deals all over the site plus lightning sales that expire within an hour or two. One caveat: It can get rather addicting to checking out this part of Amazon though so check at your own risk.

How to Make Responsive Youtube Embed Video?


Step 01: In the beginning, you embed any video whose code can be like 
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/o2Tw-8rF8dI" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
Step 02:  Now add this code <div class="embed-video"> in the above code. Now code becomes like
<div class="embed-video">
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/o2Tw-8rF8dI" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
</div>
Step 03:  After adding a div, now just add the below code any where in the stylsheet
<style type="text/css">
    .embed-video {
        position: relative;
        padding-bottom: 75%; // This is the aspect ratio
        height: 0;
        overflow: hidden;
    }
    .embed-video embed,embed-video object,embed-video iframe   {
        position: absolute;
        top: 0;
