Building character representation

With these requirements in mind, let's build the framework:

  1. From GameObject | CreateOther, select Capsule, and place it at (0, 2.5, 0), as shown in the following screenshot:

  2. Name the capsule Player in the Inspector pane.
  3. Create a cube in a similar fashion, and parent it to the capsule by dragging it onto the hero. Scale it to (0.5,0.5,2), and set its local position to (0,1.5, 0.5).
  4. Name the cube object Hat.

Congratulations! You now have a representation of our hero in the game. The Hat object will serve as a visual cue for us in this chapter as we refine the controls and camera code.
