View Full Version : Car Question

I wonder if it's possible to control the car, that comes in the advanced examples section of the editor?

I tried doing it with forces, but i can only get the body to move, the suspension acts weird and so do the tires.
It would be fun to have a minigame like Trials itself, but with a car instead of a bike http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon/biggrin.gif

Been trying to do the same myself.

Tried turning the rotation physics thingie for the front axle into a motor and make it rotate, but the wheels just become detached from the car then. Either way you do it the 2 become detached.

Presumably it'd be better to create the car and inner-workings from scratch, but that isn't really my thing. I have no doubt that it's possible however.

I would suggest doing this, because then you can make the car behave exactly as you want.

If you don't need your car to be extremely realistic, I suggest doing it with one directional force attached to the car's front and a joint in the middle to make it steer. Also the wheels can be totally static if you have top down racer camera view.

Thanks for the answers guys. Although i had a 2d perspective in mind. When you put the example car on a slope, it starts rolling forward, combine that with the gamecamera, and its pretty fun, after placing some ramps and stuff. Now if there was a possibility to accelerate and brake, and maybe lean a little, that would be very cool i think.

Oh well, maybe later http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon/smile.gif
