Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Realistic vehicle wheel (by specifying tire friction coefficient)

I'm trying to make cars that behave realistically in standard UE scale (1 unit = 1 cm). The cars will (generally) not be driven by a person, but by AI. All the data I have regarding grip is the tire friction coefficient (usually marked µ). I have no idea how to setup the wheel.

Say I want a realistic normal racing slick tire with a friction coefficient of µ = 0.9. To what values should I set Friction Scale (I'm guessing 1.0), Lat Stiff Max Load, Lat Stiff Value and Long Stiff Value?

I want to leave car setup out of this for now. First I want to have a realistic wheel model, then I'll mess with braking, acceleration and steering.

Yes, you can create a physics material and add to the wheel to increase the friction of the wheel with the ground or other static meshes.
