- ShipControls - Place this script on a RigidBody for 2D spaceship controls like OverWhelmed Arena.
- VariableSpeedFPSwalker - An FPS walker script having different speeds for walking forward, strafing, and backpedaling
- RigidbodyFPSWalker - An physics based FPS walker that works with rigidbodies and thus is affected by forces, joints or other rigidbodies

General Purpose Effect Scripts
- CameraFacingBillboard - Use this script on a billboard or similar object to make it align itself with the camera.
- LookAtCameraYonly - Use this script on a billboard or other object to have it face the camera but only rotate on the Y axis.
- StopEmittingAfterDelay - After a configurable delay, particles will fade naturally, then finally the object will get destroyed with autodestruct.
- Perlin Noise - Noise functions for smoothly moving objects around or anything else
- Animating Tiled texture - A texture made of many tiles animated through setting the uv offsets
- Character Shadow - Cast shadows from an object! (requires Unity Pro)
- Fog Layer - Lets you determine per camera if fog should be enabled or disabled
- CameraRenderSettings - Allows storing seperate render settings per camera - an extended version of the Fog Layer script above.
- ReverseNormals - Reverses normals & back face culling of a mesh
- MeshMorpher - A Mesh Morpher script with scripting API
Graphical User Interface Scripts
- Custom_2D_Pointer - Make a custom pointer that changes shape at the edges of the screen.
- Box_Script - Use this system to easily make simple GUI elements in nice looking boxes with buttons that actually do something useful. All generated at runtime from a MenuStyle.
- Button - Use this script on a guiTexture object for regular push buttons that send a message when clicked.
- DraggableGUIElement - Click and drag on GUITexture or GUIText to move it around the screen.
- FadeIn - Allows you to show/hide a GUIText or GUITexture when pressing a key/button.
- ForwardAllMouseEvents - Send mouse events to some sort of controller type GameObject.
- GUIFly - Use this script on an object to make it respond to a "Fly" message so that it may move on and off the screen in a pleasing manner.
- GuiRatioFixer - Use on a GUIText /GUITexture object to automatically adjust aspect ratio
- GuiRatioFixer2 - Alternate script based on screen's aspect to use on a GUIText /GUITexture object to automatically adjust aspect ratio
- ToggleButton - Extends the Button class to create a toggle button.
- DragSlider - Use this script with a pair of GUITextures to make a functioning slider.
- TakeScreenshot - Captures sequentially numbered screenshots when a function key is pressed.
- ScreenShotMovie - Captures a screenshot sequence for use when making a movie
- GetTimeString - A simple function that can be placed anywhere and used to display times. Useful for racing games.
Heads Up Display Scripts
- MessageDisplayer - Use this script on a GUIText object to have a self-disappearing list of status messages.
- FramesPerSecond - Use this script on a GUIText object to display FPS counter.
