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"

How to make a vehicle faster and maneuverable?

Hi everyone, I'm trying to create my very first vehicle game, I've set up everything, my testing vehicles work, but they all move and steer in the very same way. the things that more concern me are mainly two: they are all extremely slow (they reach barely 100 kmph after 12-13 secs) and they are not maneuverable, every time i steer left or right, the vehicle spins. I have in mind something more like rocket league controls and, for now, all I have is quite the opposite. So, speaking of vehicle blueprints, which are the attributes to address? thanks!

Have a close look at the vehicle movement component.

The topspeed and acceleration is computet with physx and your setup of RPM Curve, MaxRPM, Gear Transmission (and Clutchstrenght whichs default of 10 is ok). Increase your MaxRPM, the Torque Value (vertical part of the curve) and adjust the Curve "sharpness" to your needs. And oh - you can setup differentials for antislip and so on :)

Your Steering comes from the steer curve. Make it longer on 1.0 (or more) and you get quicker steering. You can also multiply your steering input when using the bp node setSteeringInput (axis * 4 eg)

Some Examples (First one 0-100 10sec, 2nd one 0-100 ~5sec): alt text
