    Hey everyone this is a project I've been working on for quite sometime and everyone kept telling me i should make a prefab and release it to the public. So after a lot of optimizing I've finally decided to do just that. This is a Keyboard you can use on your avatars that will type particle letters/numbers/symbols in the air.

    For some reason i cannot post links or images when editing this thread atm so here is the links you'll need to copy and paste them.

    This keyboard works great and I've used it for many months. There are some issues I've yet to work out but hopefully getting it into more hands can solve them.

    KNOWN ISSUES:
    The main issue I've had is that because of the use of rigid bodies it breaks in some worlds (this is a known issue for many world particle based systems)

    The only other issue I've had is that occasionally the keyboard will stop showing for some people and require swapping to another avatar and back so that it does show up.

    Right now the particles are set on a timer of 45 seconds before they start to disappear and can only spawn a max of 30 of each character.


    if you need any help or have any comments or suggestions you can hit me up on discord or twitter!

    works just fine in the current update i added it to 3 avatars today. Make sure you have the fixed joint/rigid bodies setup properly and that you haven't accidentally changed any of the names of the objects
