asked in AimIK by (200 points)
I use the aim IK 'axis' vector fields as an offset to get the correct positioning when pointing a weapon.  When I start the game these values recalculate or change to a different value.  How can i get a set axis to use as an offset that won't be changed?

The axis vector is only normalized by AimIK (for performance reasons) when it initiates. It doesn't change the direction of the vector so it will not change the way AimIK behaves.

Is there a better way to offset the position than axis vector? I use a different one for each weapon

 If the problem is that your weapons have different axes pointing forward, then it would be better to use the hand bone as "Aim Transform" instead of the weapon.

Or you could apply offset like so:

public AimIK ik;
public Vector3 offset;
private Vector3 defaultAxis;

void Start() {
    defaultAxis = ik.solver.axis;

void LateUpdate() {
     ik.solver.axis = Quaternion.Euler(offset) * defaultAxis;

ok ill try this.  thanks

no matter what i set as the offset value, the axis stays the same.  


aim.solver.axis = Quaternion.Euler(offset) * defaultAxis; in lateupdate and setting default in start.  

I can't seem to make it assign a value to the axis in the script.



i assigned the axis directly to the vector3 values and it works.  Thanks.
