Smooth movement

Alessandro 2 years ago updated by Lazlo Bonin (Lead Developer) 2 years ago 2


I'm trying to understand what am I doing wrong in the diagram below.

I was expecting a smooth enemy movement along the x axis, seems simple enough, but the movement seems to be a little laggy as opposed to the smooth player movement.

See coins, parrots and missile in the video.


  • I'm using fixed update as I have many elements that need pausing so I set the time to 0 for pause, but I tried with update and it doesn't make a noticeable difference.
  • I tried to replace Get fixed delta time, with get smooth delta time, no improvements

Unity Version:

.NET Version (API Compatibility Level):

Thanks to both of you guys!

This graph should work correctly. Maybe try to work with rigidbody force or speed maybe? and then break the vector (x,y,z) and give this value to x axis. I can't see the video so idk the error exactly but I hope this help you.


You shouldn't be using Transform methods if your objects are Rigidbodies: you can either use Add Force or Set Velocity on the rigidbody for the Unity physics system to work properly. You should have a look at the Platformer Tutorial (http://ludiq.io/bolt/tutorials) to see how it's done there, it's a good example!
