The "PhysX Player Controller" action was designed to create a quick third person character that could walk around a level without any complex setup. It also was one of our first controllers for Third person. e.g. Great for main player character but not AI.

However, if you are setting up an AI, then you will want to use the "Simple Character Controller" action which simply sets up the capsule and is ready for all the programming to be done in lua or modules or both :P
Then using the Animation mapper with this, you have a large varied degree of script support that can be shared along with dynamic properties.

Controller is great for all beginners :D

A game have only one controller for player and hundred of AI character that needs "Simple character Controller".
Should not Simple Character Controller be in the right click editor menu instead of looking for it in the Action list ?

Great :D

Despite some little issues here and here, skyline is super easy to use and code and it's improving really well.
It's a great 3D engine,it will need to be popular once it is ready for Steam :D
