What's the difference between using TransformDirection(Vector3.forward) and transform.forward?
TransformDirection "transforms" the direction from local space to world space. Transform.forward uses the "blue axis" of the transform in world space which is the Z axis, but also takes into account the rotation of the object. The latter can be useful for moving an object along it's Z axis, so if it rotates it'll always point in the direction of the objects Z axis.
