Need help in Unity... (Forums : Level Design : Need help in Unity...) Locked

Recently, I've decided to learn map/level design in Unity. I came a long way from knowing nothing. I've been taking tutorials on creating a terrain, adding grass, trees, skybox and more but I'm currently stuck.

My problem is, whenever I drag and drop the 3rd Person Controller from Project folder and attach a camera, he runs in place and doesn't respond to W,S,A,D, or spacebar. Actually, all he does is run in place...there is no response. I'm wondering if I need to somehow lock everything I created on the terrain together so there's no confusion in the program with the Controller's collider? I have some animated fire going on in there with particle effects also. Please help me understand what could be going on. I've double-checked the placement of the Camera and some other things I've searched on google which was recommended. Unfortunately, nothing I looked up works.

This is the error I keep getting in console

NullReferenceExceptionUnityEngine.Component.get_transform ()ThirdPersonController.UpdateSmoothedMovementDirection () (at Assets/Standard Assets/Character Controllers/Sources/Scripts/ThirdPersonController.js:129)ThirdPersonController.Update () (at Assets/Standard Assets/Character Controllers/Sources/Scripts/ThirdPersonController.js:302)

Know nothing about Unity. Come on! Why don't try Source engine?

^ Unity is vastly better for game making in general than Source. What makes Source even worse for this type of game is the fact that it can't handle large open (outdoor) areas well and the designer has to constantly be on ones toes with the amount of visleaves.

I'm sorry I'm not able to help OP much as I have Unity installed to only check that my models export with all textures and animations correctly.

Good work reviving a dead thread you two. Chances are he has not assigned the animations in the 3rd person controller prefab.
