In Unity is it possible to apply force or set the velocity of a rigidbody on local axis? If so, how can you do it? Thank you for your time.
If you want to add force, you can use
AddRelativeForce as mentioned by @Eric5h5 at Addforce in local space? - Questions & Answers - Unity Discussions
If you want to set the velocity you can do this, as mentioned by @aldonaletto at Velocity relative to Local Axis - Questions & Answers - Unity Discussions
var locVelocity = transform.InverseTransformDirection(rigidbody.velocity); locVelocity.z = speed; rigidbody.velocity = transform.TransformDirection(locVelocity);
