    Hi all,

    I thought I'd post a message about a bit of work I'm trying to do in BB3.

    I have a vehicle that has Physics enabled on it and is controlled via applying forces and calculation of velocities etc and applying those so that the underlying physics isn't ruined.

    It is a work in progress but it would be nice to know what you think of it.

    Also with the new Linkers in BB3 it is a doddle to add a caravan/trailer for a new dimension to the game

    Really like your concept. Reminds me of those racetrack toys from back in the day where you could build your own track with loops, ramps, etc.

    Hi @samadqamar

    Basically using math to work out forces and applying those via the physics in BB the right way. The vehicle is made up of multiple models that I control separately. It has been improved and I have some suspension effects and better wheel steering effects and it has a camera follow mode which follows with rotation as well

    I had offers from people to pay for it so to be fair on them I can't go and share the nodes and code.

    @rizwanashraf Yes he may make one down the line but I have to be fair to the people who have contacted me.

    I will be sharing a Camera follow node which works in situations where the existing one on the forum fails that I added to the vehicle.

    I’m working on another one that might come in handy too, simple idea but might be handy

    Just never get enough time on the game stuff
