I see in the syntax for character controller creating you have to add an X,Y,Z to it for collision, wouldn't that just make a box over your character instead of being perfectly accurate like a dynamic object? Is there a way to get character controllers accurate like dynamic objects?

Not sure what you mean, it supports cylinder and box shapes.

thats what I meant, like does it support mesh, but if not then i'll stick to using dynamic objects and try to learn.

Im not sure why you would want a controller with the body of a mesh, no games does that, because... There is no point.

really? what about halo or CoD, with sticky grenades or such they don't stick to a invisible box around you, they stick directly to the part you throw at.

Its a difference between the actual character mesh and the character controller physics body.

If you want to detect if a bullet hits a player you would perform a raycast or collision test to the mesh, not the controller. The controller is the body that makes the character collide with terrain and objects.

I want to work on a VERY simple RPG, wouldn't dynamic work better for that though? dynamic works fine if it's 3rd person.
