[Unity] Script: I tried to move game objects by “Transform”.

Last time, I tried to move game objects by “Rigidbody“.

This time, I tried basic ways to move game objects by “Transform“.

[To specify the location to move in the flame]

1. position: Specify the position in a world space.

2. localPosition: Specify relative position from parent object
(If it doesn’t have the parent, it’s same as ‘position’.)

3. Translate: Move to specified direction and distance.

Let’s try!

This C# program is following.


using System.Collections;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using UnityEngine;

public class MoveTest_2 : MonoBehaviour {

    Vector3 moveDirection;

    void Start () {
        moveDirection = transform.up;

    void FixedUpdate() {
        if (this.name == "Position")

           // Setting of position
            = transform.position + moveDirection * Time.deltaTime;

        else if (this.name == "LocalPosition")

           // Setting of localPosition
            = transform.localPosition + moveDirection * Time.deltaTime;

        else if (this.name == "Translate")

           // Setting of Translate
           transform.Translate(moveDirection * Time.deltaTime);
