How to Talk to an NPC

I’ve seen a lot of tutorials answer this question but I’m too lazy to watch a 30 minute YouTube video for something that probably won’t even work. Anyway, I’m trying to get my character to talk to an NPC, but I have no idea where to start. (This is for a RPG by the way). The way I want this to happen is when the player intercepts with a invisible trigger area and clicks or presses a key on the keyboard, it will make a dialogue box at the bottom of the screen and say something. Also, one more thing, can you keep it as simple as you can? Nobody likes complicated, do they?

I’m too lazy to watch a 30 minute”, so lets see if someone spends his time to solve my problem…


What are the guidelines for writing good questions?

We want Unity Answers to become a comprehensive database of questions and answers related to Unity. When you ask your questions, it can be helpful to keep a few things in mind:

Some reasons for getting a post rejected:

There exists duplicate questions with answers if you were to do a search, either on Answers or on the Forum or on Unity tutorials

Your post does not have a correct structure: Title is the most important thing, A title must explain in one sentence whats your problem about, so experts in that topic can enter to read the post, Inside post main body, you must explain When, Where, How, Why you problem occurs

Your question isnt specific enough: asking for a script, asking multiple questions in one post or asking a question that could be either subjective or require extensive discussion

Your question is about very basic issues, that can be learned just by searching in google or in multiple basic tutorials for begginers
