I'm trying to create a jump mechanism without using physics, however my end code puts out an awkward looking jump.
Would it be possible to make a nice curved jump without using physics?

Without using physics? But the very math necessary to jump involves physics, I don't understand your question. You need a velocity vector and apply a gravity vector to it, that's simply how jumping works.

Gravity is a constant so you subtract fixed value from your Y position (I use 0.7 in the example)
When you jump you add the force to the y co-ordinate, Much more than when your walking. (I use 10 in the example)

Thank you blink0k!
I'll make sure to close the code tag next time.
