Playing Your Game

Once you have the server up and running and Unity playing nice it’s time to play your game. This page helps with basic movement, interaction, and special commands to explore your game world.


Movement and Camera Control

There are three ways you can move your character:

  1. Use the WASD keys on your keyboard.
  2. Use the Arrow keys on your keyboard.
  3. Hold down both mouse buttons on your mouse.

Holding down just the left mouse button will move the camera around while holding just the right button will move your character around with the camera. Scrolling with the mouse wheel will move the camera in/out depending on the direction you scroll.

Other useful keys:

  • The \ key will toggle walking/running.
  • The Numlock key will toggle autorun.


A basic chatbox is provided in the bottom left corner of the screen allowing you to talk with other players (or type commands). To start typing a new message you can either:

  • Press the enter key
  • Click on the text field area at the bottom of the chatbox.

When you have finished typing your message press the Enter key again to send the message. It will appear to nearby players.

You can also link items, abilities, etc. on the chat by SHIFT + MB.


Interacting with the World

Some objects in the world can be interacted with, such as Resource Nodes, Crafting stations, and mailboxes. Generally, either the cursor or the color of the object will change when you have moused over an interactive object indicating you can click on it. Try clicking on different objects to see what they do. Note that you often have to be pretty close to make them do anything.

During trading with a merchant, you can purchase one item or a specific number of items by pressing ALT + MB


Using Items

Items in your inventory can be used in two ways: they can be activated or they can be moved.

To activate an item left click on it. For items that can be equipped it will be equipped on your character, for ability items (such as a potion or amount whistle) it will activate the ability (and may remove the item from your bag). Not all items can be activated so left-clicking on some items may do nothing.

To move an item in your inventory right-click on it, this will “pick up” the item, replacing your cursor. You can now choose where you want to place the item. Placing it in another slot in your bag will move it there. Placing it out in the world will bring up a dialog box asking if you want to delete the item.

To split items from the stack you can use ALT + LMB to split the stack by half or to take one item from the stack you can use ALT + RMB.



By default, your character will have an auto-attack ability which can be activated by right-clicking on an enemy. The cursor will change to a sword when you have moved your cursor over an enemy target. The bottom action bar may contain other abilities that can be used as well. You can click the left mouse button on the ability to activate it.
