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"

Can't tune tank movement (physx)

Im trying to tune physx setup for my tank like vehicle, whatever settings Im trying (tire, wheel, engine, etc) vehicle speed in forward direction is slower then when adding a little turn force by setting thrust to just one side of tank (in forward direction thrust is added to both sides). Acceleration is turned on in both cases.

Any advice?

(Tank support added by modification of 4W vehicle and Tank snippet from Nvidia SDK using c++)

I have already quite good progress on that by tuning wheel damping rate to some huge values

Having the same issue. I had it sort of fixed by setting damping rate to around 10.0. but it may generate other side effects. I'm wondering if you had found out other better fixes, or figured out what actually caused that weird behavior?

I also have some issue finding a proper friction value for the tire. If I set it too high the tank can't turn in place but if I set it lower then it drifts too much when turn in high speed. Just couldn't find a sweet spot where it works in both situations.
